About this item

Reminiscent of Wiseguy, Mob Boss is a compelling biography from two prominent mob experts recounting the life and times of the first acting boss of an American Mafia family to turn government witness

Alfonso Little Al D'Arco, the former acting boss of the Luchese crime family, was the highest-ranking mobster to ever turn government witness when he flipped in 1991. His testimony sent more than fifty mobsters to prison and prompted many others to make the same choice, including John Gotti's top aide, Salvatore Sammy the Bull Gravano.

In Mob Boss, award-winning news reporters Jerry Capeci and Tom Robbins team up for this unparalleled account of DArcos life and the New York mob scene that he embraced for four decades.

Until the day he switched sides, DArco lived and breathed the old-school gangster lessons he learned growing up in Brooklyn and fine-tuned on the mean streets of Little Italy. But when he learned he was marked to be whacked, DArco quit the mob. His defection decimated his crime family and opened a window on mob secrets going back a hundred years.

Speaking with unprecedented insight, DArco exposes shocking secrets and troublesome truths about a city where a famous pizza parlor doubled as a Mafia center for multi-million-dollar heroin deals, where hit men carried out murders dressed as women, and where kidnapping a celebrity newsmans son was deemed appropriate revenge for the fathers satirical novel.

Capeci and Robbins spent hundreds of hours in conversation with DArco, and exhausted many hours more fleshing out his stories in this riveting narrative that takes readers behind the famous witness testimony for a comprehensive look at the Mafia in New York City.
