The New York Times bestselling author of Gaspipe and The Ice Man, Phillip Carlo returns with a hair-raising portrait of arguably the most depraved psychopath in the history of the Mafia, mob enforcer Tommy "Karate" Pitera. The Butcher tells the riveting true story of a hit man who loved his work too much--a maniac believed responsible for more than sixty remarkably brutal murders--whom even organized crime's most cold-blooded assassins feared. Another riveting journey into the darkest corners of the underworld, Carlo's The Butcher is destined to be a true crime classic alongside Wiseguys by Nicholas Pileggi and Underboss by Peter Maas .
