Mafia Prince is the first-person account of one of the most violent eras in Mafia history - "Little" Nicky Scarfo’s reign as boss of the Philly family in the 1980s - written by Scarfo’s underboss and nephew, "Crazy" Phil Leonetti.
The youngest-ever underboss at the age of 31, Leonetti was at the crux of the violent downfall of the traditional American Mafia in the 1980s when he infiltrated Atlantic City after gambling was legalized, and later turned state’s evidence against his own. His testimony directly led to the convictions of dozens of high-ranking made men including John Gotti, Vincent Gigante, and his own uncle, Nicky Scarfo - sparking the beginning of the end of La Cosa Nostra.
Just as The Godfather and Boardwalk Empire defined the early 20th century Mafia, and Wiseguy and Casino depicted the next great era through the ’70s, Mafia Prince concludes this epic genre revealing the Mafia’s violent final heyday of the 1980s straight from the horse’s mouth.

Now that was good.
The story is fantastic. I listened and felt like I was having a chat with the author. It is told very well and feels like it was an honest description to the story's. Every person you expected to be in the book are there and more.
L. J. Ganser's performance was great. He helped make the book more enjoyable. The sroys is gripping at times and L.J. must have enjoyed the book because there was no drop in performance.
I drive to and from work listening to audiobooks. I found the time was flying while I listened to book. I was looking forward to the drive. (From work yes :) )
There is little I didnt enjoy about this book. I was surprised that I enjoyed it so much. So many books on the Mafia and most are a let down. I was disappointing when the book finished just because it was so enjoyable I wanted more.
