His command post is a fortress on Long Island from which he presides over a vast underground empire that includes the rackets, gambling, bookmaking, and unions. His influence runs through all levels of American society, from the cop on the beat to the nation's mighty.

Movie is Great, Book is Better
This is an excellent production of the book, the cast performs brilliantly; it's like listening to an unabridged radio play. If you have only seen the film, you cannot appreciate the depth of the characters until you experience the book. It is a must read.

Couldn't Disagree More...
With the folks who gave this book (and the narrator) low ratings. Wow - were they listening to the same audio book I listened to?
This is one of the few multi-voice audio books I've listened to and I thought they did a great job!
I was a little surprised at how graphic the book is for the time period that it was written, but that's probably just my naivete.
I thought the story was compelling and enjoyed the additional chapters on Johnny Fontaine (that was not carried into the movie).
The scariest part is wondering how true to life the book really is, and whether the mafia really has this much power.
Great book - lived up to its billing!
