Abstract:

This is the story of Vito Rizzuto, the most powerful leader in the history of the Canadian Mafia, during the period of his life that would define his legacy. His father and his eldest son were slain while he sat ... in an American prison ... His myriad businesses ... were under siege. A stampede of gangsters, politicians, crooked cops and business people were deserting or exposing him. A lifetime of schooling in the Mafia hardly seemed enough training for the challenges awaiting Vito when he finally walked free in October 2012"--Back cover.
