This is the story of Chicago’s ruthless and tireless Mafia. The intensely real characters—the brutal overlords, their faithful lackeys, and their vengeful enemies—all collide in acts of loyalty, lust, greed, and death.

Power hungry Don Jimmy Collucci is out to become the kingpin of Chicago’s “Honored Society.” His rise to the top can only be thwarted by one man—a man fueled by revenge who is hell-bent on bringing Collucci’s infamous organization down: the “Black Warrior,” Jessie Taylor. When ambitions collide, guns are drawn and blood is spilled. This gritty crime fiction tale is the original Mafia story.

About the Author
Author Iceberg Slim

Iceberg Slim  (1918–1992), a.k.a. Robert Beck, was born in Chicago and initiated into the life of the pimp at age eighteen. He briefly attended the Tuskegee Institute but dropped out to return to the streets of the South Side, where he remained, pimping, until he was forty-two. After several stints in jail, culminating in a ten-month stay in Cook County, he decided to give up the life and turned to writing. With a family to feed, he folded his life into the pages of Pimp, which emerged as a definitive chronicle of street life. Slim was catapulted into the public eye as a new American hero, known for speaking the truth whether that truth was ugly, sexy, rude, or blunt. He published six more books based on his life and different aspects of the ghetto black, pimp community. Slim died at age seventy-three in 1992, one day before the Los Angeles riots.
