New York, 1980.  The five boroughs of New York are the Mafia’s world HQ – and business is booming.  In a confidential internal report circulated at the end of 1980, the FBI acknowledge that the Cosa Nostra is one of the nation’s most successful growth industries.  From grimy street corners to high-rise buildings springing up in Manhattan, the Mob’s power can be seen everywhere.

But things are about to change.

Part police procedural, part espionage thriller, part courtroom drama, this is the story of the investigation that changed America forever.  This is the story of the case that finally broke the Mob’s stranglehold over New York City.
