Mob Boss : The First Boss to Turn Government Witness
by Jerry Capeci and Tom Robbins




Overview -

Little Al D'Arco was the quintessential wiseguy-and the mob's worst nightmare...A compelling book about the rise and decline of the American Mafia.-Nicholas Pileggi, author of Wiseguy and Casino

Alfonso Little Al D'Arco, the former acting boss of the Luchese crime family, was the highest-ranking mobster to ever turn government witness when he flipped in 1991. His testimony sent more than fifty Mafiosos to prison-and prompted many others to do the same, including John Gotti's top aide, Salvatore Sammy the Bull Gravano-and altered the course of New York's mob scene forever.

Fascinating. -The Village Voice

In Mob Boss, two award-winning news reporters offer an unparalleled account of D'Arco's life and the New York mob scene that he embraced for four decades. Until the day he switched sides, D'Arco lived and breathed the old-school gangster lessons he learned growing up in Brooklyn and fine-tuned on the mean streets of Little Italy. But when he learned he was marked to be whacked, D'Arco quit the mob. His defection decimated his crime family and opened a window on a century's worth of mob secrets-many of which are published in this riveting account for the very first time.
