It can now be revealed. Advance copies of my new book, Gangland News The Places and Faces of Mob History, finally arrived and I am happy say it looks good. It is packed with maps, old photos, new photos and archival prints related to over 200 years of history related to all things organized crime in New York City. From the days of the Five Points, popularized in Martin Scorsese's film "Gangs of New York," to the tong wars of old Chinatown, the rise of the Jewish gangsters, the ascension of the Mafia Five Families and then on to the changing face of crime with Russian, Albanian and Greek immigrants, this book has something for everyone! The book will be officially released on July 1, 2015 but it can be preordered on Amazon and Barnes and Noble sites, as well as through this web site.
