Synopsis

Featuring a brand-new introduction by the author, this New York Times bestseller presents an inside expose of mob boss Sam Giancana-talented businessman, Las Vegas entrepreneur, ruthless killer, and outside player for the CIA's dirtiest deeds. Giancana clawed his way to the top of the Mafia hierarchy by starting as a hit man for Al Capone. He partied with major stars such as Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe and did business with agents ranging from the CIA to the Vatican to the shah of Iran. When Joe Kennedy gave Giancana the chance to use mob muscle to get his son John elected, Giancana jumped at the task. But the Kennedy brothers double-crossed him, waging full-scale war on organized crime throughout the United States, and Giancana found himself going after the Kennedys. Undoubtedly, his story, written with suspense and truthful conviction, changed the course of American history. This shocking, inside-the-syndicate tell-all reveals Giancana's first-person testimony regarding his involvement in the deaths of Monroe and others, among other shocking secrets
