About this product
- DescriptionA vain man of good looks, small means, and family links to the mob, Vincent Vinny Gorgeous Bascia steadily worked his way up to acting boss of the Bonan crime family, becoming its leader when official boss Joseph Massi went to the clink in 2003. But at a time when the Mob was crawling with secret operatives and informants caving to government pressure to flip, Bascia obeyed the code of La Cosa Nostra. I got faith in one guy, he told a group of mobsters during a secretly taped meeting. That man was Joseph Massi, head of the Bonan borgata. But for all his loyalty, Bascia was still a hot-headed, cold-blooded killer, which led to his arrest. Then, in a remarkable betrayal that shook the Five Families to their foundation, Massi secretly cooperated with the FBI-the first official boss ever to roll over. As a result, Bascia faced the death penalty, but a federal jury, disturbed by the prosecution's use of criminal informants, reached a surprising verdict. Veteran crime author Anthony M. DeStefa tells the riveting story of the last true believer in the Mob's cult of brotherhood and how he was betrayed by the only man he ever trusted.
