Top hoodlum : Frank Costello, Prime Minister of the Mafia


"The definitive book on the ultimate mob boss--featuring new FBI revelations, rare family photos, and never-before-published material . . . The press nicknamed him "The Prime Minister of the Underworld." The U.S. Treasury's Bureau of Narcotics described him as "one of the most powerful and influential Mafia leaders in the U.S." But to friends and associates, he was simply "Uncle Frank." Who was Frank Costello really? That's the question Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Anthony M. DeStefano sets out to answer--in this definitive portrait of one of the most fascinating figures in the annals of American crime"--Amazon.
