    schema:description "Sandi Lansky Lombardo grew up the only daughter of mob boss Meyer Lansky. Raised in upper-class Jewish splendor, she was a wild child of the late 40's into the early 60's, but her life was not without heartbreak and tragedy. Privy to her father's secrets as well as his unexpected tenderness, she always stuck closely to the strict code of omerta. Her memoir takes us inside family life of the Mafia at the height of its power."@en ;
