Mafia: The Final Secrets
  • Mafia: The Final Secrets

  • Born into a powerful mob family, Bill Bonanno was privy to a private world that existed just outside the law for decades in America - a world ruled by the tenets of loyalty, secrecy, brotherhood and survival at any cost: the Mafia.

    The son of Joe Bonanno - the Godfather-like head of one of the original five New York crime families - Bill Bonanno came of age in the Golden Age of the Mafia. Bill is widely recognised as the historical basis for Michael Corleone's character in the Godfather trilogy, and in this revelatory final testament he ushers readers in to that cloistered world, from its origins in Sicilian and Italian history to its rise, tumultuous peak and precipitous fall in America.

    Mafia: The Final Secrets is the ultimate insider's last word on one of the most secretive and misunderstood phenomena of our time.

Bill Bonanno (1932-2008) was the son of Joseph Bonanno, the head of the powerful Bonanno crime Family. He was the author of Bound by Honor and co-author of the novel The Good Guys with Joseph Pistone and David Fisher, and he collaborated with Gay Talese on Honor Thy Father, a non-fiction chronicle of the Bonanno family. Gary B. Abromovitz is a retired attorney whose practice involved industrial espionage cases and interaction with criminal profilers from the FBI's renowned Behavioural Science Unit. He gained access to the real history of the Mafia through in-depth interviews with Bill Bonanno over a 12-year period.
