If you thought the CIA Manual of Trickery was good, wait ’til you check out this read on the Mafia. The book was put out by the Feds and is an exact copy of the old Federal Bureau of Narcotics reference on 800 organized crime figures (circa the early 1960s) that thankfully has been reproduced for our enjoyment. This is definitely the “Mafia Bible” of that time period — filled with information on gangsters from coast to coast. Well organized, the book outlines subjects by State then alphabetically while presenting mugshots along with aliases, affiliations and criminal background. This might be the best 12 bucks you ever spend.
