Publisher's Summary

The son of legendary mafioso Joe Bonanno, Bill Bonanno was born into a world of respect, tradition, and honor, and was a "made" member of the mafia by the time he was in his early twenties. He was rumored to be the model for The Godfather's Michael Corleone, and was the subject of Gay Talese's best-selling Honor Thy Father. Now retired, Bonanno is finally ready to bear witness to his life as a high-ranking captain in one of America's most powerful mafia syndicates. From the truth about his father's mysterious disappearance to a startling disclosure about the mob's part in the Kennedy assassination, Bonanno lays bare the inner workings of his chaotic, violent, and surprisingly human world with unparalleled detail and insight.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was a fascinating insight into the old world of the mafia. I'm just blown away that the answer to the Kennedy assassinations is in this book and yet still people are debating the conspiracy theories. I just couldn't put my ipod down and spent a whole day listening to this from the beginning to the end. Without a doubt this is one of the best audio books that I've listened to.

Not quite what I was expecting

I have read another book by Bill Bonanno (The Good Guys) and was very impressed by the humerous accounts of life in the Italian American Mafia as well as the NY Police, however I found this latest read a little more slow paced. I will give it 3 stars as there were some interesting tales of some well known Mafia stories that I felt added some authenticity.
