A gripping, novelistic biography of the diminutive man behind the big mouth.
Reminiscent of Wiseguy and Ice Man, this compelling biography from two prominent mob experts recounts the life and times of Alfonso Little Al D'Arco, the highest-ranking mobster to ever share Mafia secrets when he changed sides in 1991. Although top boss of the Luchese crime family, D'Arco decided to quit the mob after narrowly escaping an assassination attempt. His testimony sent more than fifty mobsters to prison and prompted others to make the same choice.
With the full participation of D'Arco, New York reporters Jerry Capeci and Tom Robbins recreate a New York dominated by strutting gangland personalities in this riveting narrative that takes readers behind the famous witness testimony for a comprehensive look at the Mafia in New York City.
