The "Big Heist" Will be Released on June 27, 2017.
"The Big Heist," the latest and last word on the fabled Lufthansa Heist of 1978, will be officially released on June 27. It picks up where the film "Goodfellas" left off and takes the story of the great JFK robbery through late 2015. It was then that Vincent Asaro, the old gangster federal investigators alleged was the last man alive who participated in the heist, was acquitted of the charges in a stunning jury verdict. The book details how the feds tried to build a case against Asaro, using the story of Henry Hill and Jimmy "The Gent" Burke as the backdrop to a new Mafia tale of greed, betrayal and murder. "The Big Heist" details information about the way Burke and his crew of thieves corrupted cops and ruled the city as a gang of hijackers, thieves and killers. The real life characters depicted in "Goodfellas" are all revealed in a fascinating story of the New York Mafia in its heyday.
