Ing details and deceptions that created a vast criminal empire Here are six decades of the uncontrolled greed and lust for power of such men as Lucky Luciano Frank Costello Meyer Lansky Vito Genovese Albert Anastasia Carlo Gambino Paul Castellano and John Gotti men for whom murder and betrayal were business as usual Fro. Since watching The Irishman I’ve had a yen for Mafia crime stories I’ve always wanted to know about the Gambino family since they were the most powerful of the five families during the time the mob ran everything So I picked this lauded work upIt gave me everything I need in the best way possible being detailed without being tedious It covers the families coming over from Italy and Sicily how what we know to be the “mafia” came into existence and how the families formed out of old bootlegging wars Much of the history parallels the history of the underworld in 20th century New York CityMost of the second half of the book is devoted to John Gotti I knew little about the man himself and nothing I learned really changed my perceptions but I got the bigger picture I wanted Apparently the government was coming down hard on the mob in the 80s with RICO so whomever succeeded Paul Castellano probably would’ve gone down soon after anyway Which doesn’t change the fact that John Gotti was a moron as a boss a flashy braggart who basically painted a target on his back It only goes to show the ineptness of the prosecution both state and federal that it took four tries to finally convict him of somethingDavis goes long several times on how the Mafia created a bad image for Italian Americans He doesn’t glorify the family or the life at all He is a little lenient towards Gotti claiming that the gangster was loyal to the code until his demise which okay At the same time this is a well rounded picture of how something that started as a protection racket grew into criminal dominance and was eventually reigned in by a combination of prosecutorial zeal and its own hubris Crime doesn’t pay

This is a solid accounting of the Mafia's roots and Gambino crime family As expected the Gotti years become the principal focus through the second half of the book I have read several other books related to the Mafia but this is the first time I've heard it proposed that the Apalachin fiasco was deliberately engineered from within The author concludes by stating Gotti was true to Cosa Nostra principles but the truth is that he never bothered to get a sanction for his hit on Big Paul fearing that Castellano would be tipped off by the Vincent the Chin Gigante boss of the Genovese faction
