Presents a firsthand account of organized crime showing its brutality and fascination.

Pileggi's vivid, journalistic chronicle of the life of Henry Hill was the basis for the motion picture GoodFellas, which brought to life the violence, the excess, the families, the wives and girlfriends, the drugs, the payoffs, the paybacks, the jail time, and the Feds. Read it and experience the secret life inside the mob-- from one who's lived it.
