Anthony 'Gaspipe' Casso, boss of New York's Lucchese crime family, was a Mafia superstar, responsible for more than fifty murders. Now serving thirteen life sentences at a federal prison in Colorado, Casso has given journalist and New York Times bestselling author Philip Carlo the most intimate, personal look into the world of La Cosa Nostra ever seen. By pure happenstance, Casso had lived next door to the family of young Philip Carlo and so Carlo was able to get into the mind, heart and soul of one of the most cunning, ruthless mob bosses in the annals of crime history. In Gaspipe, Casso reveals the shocking detail behind headline–making crimes and crime figures, including the relationship between La Cosa Nostra and the Russian Mafia, the truth behind the Mafia and the narcotics trade, and much more.
Chilling and illuminating, unvarnished and entertaining, Gaspipe is a rollercoaster ride into a world few outsiders have ever dared to enter.
