Sins of the Father : The True Story of a Family Running from the Mob
by Nick Taylor


Overview - The true story of how Sal Polisi—a member of a New York crime family and author of The Sinatra Club—turned his back on the mob and spoke out against organized crime.

As a wiseguy for some of New York’s biggest crime families, “Crazy Sal” Polisi couldn’t imagine another way of life. Until the day he was busted and faced life behind bars. Then he decided it was time to talk—not so much for himself, but for the sake of his two teenaged sons.

But Polisi discovered a chilling truth—no one squeals on the mob. Forced to assume a new identity moving from town to town in the middle of the night, his sons chose to stand by their father. In exchange for federal protection, Polisi took a huge gamble—he decided to testify against John Gotti, the reputed head of New York’s powerful Gambino family. As packed with shocking insider details as Nicholas Pileggi’s Wiseguy and as gripping as The Godfather—only true—Sal Polisi’s story marks his captivating transformation from ruthless criminal to devoted father and crusader against organized crime.
