As the last don of the Philadelphia mob, Ralph Natale, the first-ever mob boss to turn state´s evidence, provides an insider´s perspective on the Mafia. Natale´s reign atop the Philadelphia and New Jersey underworlds brought the region´s Mafia back to prominence in the 1990s. Smart, savvy, and articulate, Natale came up in the mob and saw firsthand as it hatched its plan to control Atlantic City´s casino unions. Later on, after spending 16 years in prison, he reclaimed the family as his own after a bloody mob war that left bodies scattered across South Philly. He forged connections around the country and achieved a status within the mob never seen before or since, until he was betrayed by his men and decided to testify against them in a stunning turn of events. Using dozens of hours of interviews with Natale along with research and interviews with FBI agents, this book delivers revelatory insights into seminal events in American mob history, including: The truth about Jimmy Hoffa´s disappearance The murder of Jewish mob icon Bugsy Siegel The identity of the man who created modern-day Las Vegas With the full cooperation of Natale, New York Daily News reporter Larry McShane and producer Dan Pearson uncover the deadly reign of the last great mob boss of Philadelphia, a tale that covers a half century of mob lore - and gore. 1.

Frank Sheeran, known as ´´The Irishman´´, waited his entire life to tell his story or at least his version of his story. The world knew him as a union official, a longtime member of the Teamsters union; he was a member of Jimmy Hoffa’s inner circle at the top of the national union. He had run-ins with the law in this position. He was charged with the murder of a rebel union member in a riot that occurred outside the Teamster’s Local Philadelphia Union Hall, but the charges were later dropped. He went to prison in the ´80s after being caught on a wire instructing one of his crew to break someone’s legs and was named in Rudy Giuliani’s Mafia Commission Trial as an unindicted coconspirator and one of only two non-Italian members of the Mafia Commission.As an old man suffering from cancer that would soon kill him, Frank Sheeran shared his story with his attorney.
