by John H. Davis




Overview -
The Gambinos--they arrived in America from Sicily when the 20& 39;s roared with bootleg liquor.

From the Gambinos& 39; powerful stranglehold on New York& 39;s construction, garment, and waterfront industries to the government& 39;s onslaught against them in the 80s and 90s, Mafia Dynasty takes you into the mysterious world of blood oaths, shifting alliances, and deadly feuds that will hold you riveted from the first page to the last.
