Overview

For the first twenty-five years of his career, Lucky Luciano was a vicious mobster who became the king of the New York underworld. For the next twenty-five, he was a fake, his reputation maintained by government agents. "Boardwalk Gangster" follows him from his early days as a hit man to his sex and narcotics empires, exposing the truth about what he did to help the Allies in World War II, and revealing how he really spent his twilight years.

Drawing on secret government documents in the United States and Europe, this myth-busting biography tells a story that has never been told before in which the American Mafia becomes entangled with foreign war and Cold War conspiracy."
