Before Al Capone and Lucky Luciano, there was the one-fingered, cunning Giu seppe Morello and his murderous coterie of brothers. Had it not been for Mo rello, the world may never have heard of 'men of honour', the code of omert a or Mafia wars. This explosive book tells the story of the first family of New York, and how this extended close-knit clan of racketeers and murderer s left the backwaters of Sicily to successfully establish themselves as the founding godfathers of the New World. First Family will explain in thrilli ng, characterful detail how the American Mafia established itself so succes sfully. Combining strong narrative and raw violence - set against the rauco us bustle of early twentieth-century New York, and the impoverished rural l ife of nineteenth-century Sicily - this impeccably researched, groundbreaki ng study of a crucial period of American history is a compelling portrait o f the early years of organised crime.
