Gary interviews retired New York City Chief of Investigations Thomas F. Comiskey. Over his career, Tom Comiskey exposed and prosecuted corruption in New York CityÔÇÖs anti-poverty programs and public schools. In his non-fiction account of the Mob in lower Manhattan, Mr. Comiskey cuts through the myths and legends surrounding the East Village organized crime families. Hidden among East Village tenements, storefronts, neighborhood coffee shops, avant-garde art galleries, and alternative rock music venues, the Mafia ran rackets, murdered enemies, and corrupted politicians. From the 1920s to 1990, mob icons from Lucky Luciano, Joey Gallo to Bill Bonanno lived in or frequented the East Village.

Tom Comiskey is a wonderful storyteller and this book should be a “must-have” for the library of every true mob historian. You can find East Village Mafia by clicking on this highlighted type. This takes you directly to the Amazon page.
