Description

Five years ago Peter Watson discovered at the back of the London Library a dusty volume written by a one-time member of the Pinkerton’s Detective Agency. Inside was the electrifying story of a young Sicilian who in the 1890s fled his native country to reach New Orleans, where he found employment with relatives on the dockside. Within months he was to become one of the city’s most notorious gangsters, and the Mafia had hit America.

From this true life story, effectively unknown until now, Peter Watson has fashioned a superb novel of suspense.
