A Death in the Family

By Thom L. Jones



In those last few seconds, as his life was disappearing like an evanescent breath, nothing to protect him, no salvation at hand, his thoughts must have been perhaps his wife and children; his family to be torn apart by his sudden and awful ending. Did he cry out in frustration at the inevitability of this act of duplicity locking him into this act of ultimate violence; or the venal manoeuvre that enticed him into a cul-de-sac from which there could be no escape? The… Continue

By Thom L. Jones

Get ’The Right Man’: How the FBN nailed Vito Genovese

By Thom L. Jones



It begins and ends with a man who had a name that sounded like a musk melon.



His impact on the American Mafia was much more than to just have helped the law incarcerate a man who at the time, they considered perhaps the most powerful hoodlum in the country. By helping to nail him and thus sending him to prison, he created a chain of events that would have perhaps, the most significant repercussions on Italian-American organized crime since its recognized… Continue

Back to part 1



During Lunch




As his nephew drove away from the drop-off, Galante walked into the restaurant, whose front windows were masked by yellow curtains.

Death in the Afternoon, The shadow of a Dream: The Story of Carmine Galante

Before Lunch



It was not quite the dog days of August, but almost. The temperature was in the upper eighties by mid-day, baking the cracked asphalt that shimmered under the relentless rays of the noon-day sun, beating down on the city like a blow-torch, tempered by the 80 degrees of humidity.



In Bushwick, Brooklyn, inland from whatever on-shore breezes may have been blowing in from the East River, there was no relief from the wilting heat. Granita peddlers pushing carts…

Mob Meeting at Apalachin: The Big Barbeque



November 1957



The question, to my mind, has to be why?



Why was this meeting held?



There are a number of other interesting questions as well of course, and none of them have ever been answered satisfactorily.



Who actually arranged it?



Who first thought of the idea?



Who in fact brought the whole thing together?



Long before the days of rapid technological communications, how did the… Continue
