The trial of Peter “Big Hands” Crangi, the aging head of the Filaggio Mafia family is scheduled to begin in a week. Crangi, suspected of murdering over one hundred victims in his long career, is on trial for racketeering, gambling, narcotics trafficking, tax evasion, and murder. But everything changes when Stanley Soloman, the lead federal prosecutor on the case, drowns in an alleged boating accident while vacationing in Florida.
Now as Assistant Prosecutor Justin Flavin nervously steps in to head the prosecution team, he cannot help but wonder whether his boss died at the hands of the Mafia. As the trial begins, Flavin knows there will only be a conviction if the courtroom testimony of Rocky Mancresi goes off without a hitch. But as the threats and murders continue, only time will tell if Flavin can survive the trial of the decade. Unfortunately for him, mobsters never go away quietly.
In this exciting crime thriller, a young federal prosecutor must take over the complex and dangerous court case of a mob kingpin after his boss dies in a suspicious accident.
“Yet another amazing edge of the seat book by John Paul Carinci as he weaves us in and out of masterful suspense. A wonderful read!”
