Publisher's Summary

The son of legendary mafioso Joe Bonanno, Bill Bonanno was born into a world of respect, tradition, and honor, and was a "made" member of the mafia by the time he was in his early twenties. He was rumored to be the model for The Godfather's Michael Corleone, and was the subject of Gay Talese's best-selling Honor Thy Father. Now retired, Bonanno is finally ready to bear witness to his life as a high-ranking captain in one of America's most powerful mafia syndicates. From the truth about his father's mysterious disappearance to a startling disclosure about the mob's part in the Kennedy assassination, Bonanno lays bare the inner workings of his chaotic, violent, and surprisingly human world with unparalleled detail and insight.

Excellent Audiobook

As a fan of true mafia crime stories, this one is top flight. This is not written by a rat, but by one of the last stand up guys from the heyday of organized crime. His discussion of the Kennedy assasination is particularly compelling.

Excellent Book

I found this book very entertaining. I especially enjoyed Bill's voice as the narrator. His perspective on the Kennedy killings was quite captivating. Although I felt he held some things back to protect himself, I am surprised by the information he did reveal about a secret world about which many do not know or understand.
