Concise and well written, this is the first book to present detailed information on a Mafia family's illegal enterprises and their legitimate business interests. It is a case study of an Italian organized crime group of about 75 men that operates in one of our largest cities: one of the 24 groups identified as the core of organized crime by the president's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice. Using information collected by agents of the federal government as the basis of her study, Anderson offers a clear and cogent analysis of the relation between the group's numbers gambling and loansharking enterprises and its legitimate business investments.
