Joe Silvestri was a tough kid from the mean streets of New York. He went from street brawler to wearing a tux at the glamorous Copacabana. He eventually provided “muscle” for the Mob, a highly respected and feared fixer—the guy you went to if you had a problem that needed to be resolved. He followed Mob protocol when having a sit down with an adversary: You never break bread with the enemy.
Award-winning Mob author Dennis Griffin joins forces with Joey “the Fixer” Silvestri to tell a tale of a bygone era when organized crime dominated New York City. It was a time when neighborhood bosses controlled their turf and some cops would look the other way for the right price. Your best friend one day might want you dead the next. It was a violent life in which only the strong survived.
"I have known Joe Silvestri for about 50 years. I know him to be a stand-up guy, well respected by the wiseguys and their street bosses. In this book he exhibits all the courage and toughness he learned in the streets."
- Tony “Nap” Napoli, author of My Father My Don
"I have had the privilege to call Joe Silvestri my friend for more than twenty years. He is a man of honor and integrity, always seeking new enterprises and adventures. This book is the culmination of an adventurous life, and I look forward, with great anticipation, to reading it."
- Joanne de Simone, author and playwright
"Joe Silvestri is truly “old school.” Over the years he has maintained his values and believes that his word is his bond. He always has been and will always be, my dear friend."
- Marcelo “Mars” Pevida, NYPD (retired)
