    schema:reviewBody ""The American Mafia, legendary for its ability to survive and flourish in the face of all attempts to stamp it out, now lies in ruins. The pivotal battle in that war was the destruction of the Mafia's most glittering crown jewel, the Lucchese Family of New York." "Gangbusters is the story of how this supremely successful criminal gang was finally destroyed. It is the tale of how a colorful coterie of FBI agents, prosecutors, and police detectives - among them such singular characters as Dr. Bugs, Marathon Man, Jaws, Kenny the Giant, The Falcon, and Ghost Who Walked - overcame the early years of bureaucratic inertia, high-level political corruption, and interagency rivalry to achieve final victory. In a decade of hand-to-hand combat, they destroyed the men long considered untouchable - Tommy Three Fingers, Tony Ducks, Christy Ticks, Tom Mix, Gas Pipe, and The Terminator." "Based on interviews with antagonists on both sides of the law, court records, transcripts, and police intelligence files, Gangbusters tells the history of a criminal enterprise from the inside - the men who made it flourish, how they operated, and the real world of organized crime."--BOOK JACKET." ;
