From the New York
Times bestselling author of Blood
and Honor and The Last
Gangster comes the sure to be headline-making inside story of the Gotti and
Gambino families, told from the unique viewpoint of notorious mob hit man John
Alite, a close associate of Junior Gotti who later testified against him.
In Gotti’s Rules,
George Anastasia, a prize-winning reporter who spent over thirty years covering
crime, offers a shocking and very rare glimpse into the Gotti family, witnessed
up close from former family insider John Alite, John Gotti Jr.’s longtime
friend and protector. Until now, no one has given up the kind of personal
details about the Gottis—including the legendary “Gotti Rules” of
leadership—that Anastasia exposes here. Drawing on extensive FBI files and
other documentation, his own knowledge, and exclusive interviews with insiders
and experts, including mob-enforcer-turned-government-witness Alite, Anastasia
pokes holes in the Gotti legend, demystifying this notorious family and its
lucrative and often deadly machinations.
Anastasia offers never-before-heard information about the
murders, drug dealing, and extortion that propelled John J. Gotti to the top of
the Gambino crime family and the treachery and deceit that allowed John A.
“Junior” Gotti to follow in his father’s footsteps. Told from street level and
through the eyes of a wiseguy who saw it all firsthand, the result is a
riveting look at a family whose hubris, violence, passion, and greed fueled a
bloody rise and devastating fall that is still reverberating through the
American underworld today. Download and start listening now!
