Summary
Painting a vivid picture of the scenes both inside and outside the courtroom and re-creating events from court transcripts, police records, interviews, and notes taken day after day as the story unfolded in court in 2007, this narrative accurately portrays cold-blooded and sometimes incompetent killers and their crimes. In 1998, Frank Calabrese Jr. offered to wear a wire to help the FBI build a case against his father, Frank Sr., and his uncle Nick. A top Mob boss, a reputed consigliore, and other high profile members of the Chicago Outfit were eventually accused in 18 gangland killing, revealing organized crime's ruthless grip on the city throughout the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. After a series of other defendants pled guilty, those left to face off in court alongside Frank Sr. were James Little Jimmy Marcello, the acting head of the Chicago mob; Joey the Clown Lombardo, one of Chicago's most colorful mobsters; and Paul the Indian Schiro. A former Chicago police officer who worked in evidence, Anthony "Twan" Doyle, rounded out the list. The riveting testimony and wide-angle view provide one of the best accounts on record of the inner workings of the Chicago syndicate and its control over the city's streets
Summary
Discusses the Calabrese family's criminal activity from the 1960s to the 1980s, the events that lead Frank Jr. to turn against his father, and trial of Frank Sr. for eighteen murders in 2007
