More About Crime Incorporated or Under the Clock by William Balsamo; George Carpozi
 
 
 
Overview
Based on previously unavailable information and nearly two decades of research, Crime Incorporated reveals for the first time all the unsavory facts of the Mob's bloody evolution from a gang of uncouth, bumbling killers into the highly organized, smoothly running "corporation" it is today. William Balsamo, great-nephew of the first godfather, Don Giuseppe -- "Battista" -- Balsamo, and George Carpozi, Jr. disclose the Mob's savage beginnings in the group of Italian immigrants -- the "Black Hand" -- who tore control of New York's waterfronts away from the Irish racketeers -- the "White Hand" -- and went from there. They trace the Black Hand's coalescence into an organization whose insidious influence reached across the country and into a presidential administration.

Crime Incorporated explores the horrifying facts behind the rise and fall of the Mob's most notorious leaders and goes behind the headlines of Rudolph Giuliani's pursuit of the Mob -- the Pizza Connection and Commission trials -- to cite with chilling clarity the Mafia's control over daily life in America. Crime Incorporated reads like a novel. But it is frightening, deadly truth.
