For half a century, the American Mafia outwitted, outmaneuvered, and outgunned the FBI and other police agencies, wreaking unparalleled damage on America’s social fabric and business enterprises while emerging as the nation’s most formidable crime empire. The vanguard of this criminal juggernaut is still led by the Mafia’s most potent and largest borgatas: New York’s Five Families. Five Families is the vivid story of the rise and fall of New York’s premier dons, from Lucky Luciano to Paul Castellano to John Gotti and others. This definitive history brings the reader right up to the possible resurgence of the Mafia as the FBI and local law-enforcement agencies turn their attention to homeland security and away from organized crime. This updated tenth-anniversary edition features a new preface by the author.

In 1987, seasoned journalist Jerry Capeci was hired by the New York Daily News to cover the crime beat. His reporting on the Mafia proved so popular that he was given a weekly column, which was tagged "Jerry Capeci's Gangland." "Gangland" was an immediate hit with New Yorkers and continued for almost seven years. Capeci wrote on the everyday trials and tribulations of La Cosa Nostra, putting the mob under a microscope and laying bare the inner workings and day-to-day operations of both mob bosses and low-level street soldiers alike. He reported on such major mob events as John Gotti's murder conviction and Sammy "the Bull"Gravano's testimony that put Gotti behind bars.

During the early twentieth century, Sicilian and Southern Italian immigrants poured into New York City. Looking to escape poverty and persecution at home, they soon discovered that certain criminal enterprises followed them to America. Before any codes of honor were established in the New World, violent bosses wreaked havoc on their communities in their quest to rule the underworld. It took several decades for the Mafia to mature into a contemporary organized crime syndicate. Some names and places from both eras are still infamous today, like Frank Costello and the Copacabana, while some have remained hidden in absolute secrecy until now. Walk in their footsteps as New York City author Eric Ferrara explores the myths and realities of one of America's most feared and fascinating subjects.
