Mob Corner is written by Thom L. Jones. A retired businessman, he has had a long interest in organized crime, and in particular the Sicilian and American Mafia.
A hobby triggered by a book he read while studying at university "God Protect Me From My Friends" a biography of the Sicilian bandit Salvatore Guiliano, which started him off into collecting and creating a database of books, articles, reports and internet sources that now amounts to literally thousands of pages of detailed information on the people and events that have changed the face of international crime over the last eighty years.
Although living in New Zealand, and consequently somewhat removed from easy access to traditional research facilities, he has travelled the world extensively over the last thirty years, and still maintains this schedule, allowing him to keep up-to-date with events in North America and Europe.
A contributor to CrimeLibrary.com; the now defunct BostonMafia.com and Mafia-International.com he is now presenting his crime articles and short stories of fiction at Gangsters Inc. hosted by David Amoruso and looks forward to continuing to attract and interest anyone fascinated by this absorbing subject.
Below are his mob stories. If you are interested in more stories and articles on the mob, check out Gangsters Inc.'s American Mafia section.
