THE SIXTH FAMILY : the collapse of the New York mafia and the rise of Vito Rizzuto, Lee Lamothe; Adrian Humphreys
25 Lee Lamothe; Adrian Humphreys THE SIXTH FAMILY : the collapse of the New York mafia and the rise of Vito Rizzuto
Mississauga, Ont Wiley & Sons Canada 2006 0470837535 / 9780470837535 Second Printing Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Hardbound, 8 Vo., 
cloth, gilt spine, pp.,xiv, 386 ,xiv, 386 pages, [16] pages of plates : illustrations, portraits Includes ibliographical references (p. [363]-371) index, "In a mansion in an exclusive area of Montreal, Canada, lives a clan named Rizzuto. When the Rizzuto patriarch, Nick, arrived in the New World from a remote village in western Sicily, he brought with him his most valued possessions: his young family and the old code of the Mafia. He relied on both - his family and his code - to build a robust criminal organization that flourished in the shadow of the notorious Five Families of New York City." "Decades later, three rebellious captains in the Bonanno crime family were slaughtered inside a Brooklyn social club. For 25 years the details of the crime remained a closely guarded secret while, at the same time, rumors of the bold attack became underworld legend. Now, mob turncoats have come forward, abandoning their oath of omerta, to point their finger at the man they say was the lead triggerman that night - Vito Rizzuto, the son of Nick Rizzuto. The Brooklyn purge protected a hard-won, billion-dollar drug franchise." "In contrast to the deafening crash of gunfire in the narrow confines of that club, this cult-like Mafia family has been nurtured in a culture of silence and secrecy, and by relying on family - true family - to link the Mafia strongholds of Brooklyn, Montreal and western Sicily. Vito Rizzuto created a pure, near-perfect Mafia, an organization that seemed bulletproof to its rivals and immune to government prosecution at a time when the American Mafia was being slowly dismantled by the FBI." "The Sixth Family is a chilling modern-day underworld saga, deftly researched and compellingly told. While it contains the expected ingredients - drugs, corruption, treachery and murder - the book is full of surprises. The Sixth Family reveals the hidden history of the rise of the Rizzutos, the alliances forged around the globe and the events that recently led to charges against Vito Rizzuto in both the United States and Italy. The FBI wants him to face racketeering charges after a massive anti-Mafia sweep in New York; Italy's authorities wish to put him on trial for a conspiracy to infiltrate the nation's largest public works project. He is fighting all charges in a determined and well-financed campaign."--BOOK JACKET. Montreal Mafia TV series coming to a screen near you in fall 2017
