Mobsters, Gangsters and Men of Honour
Cracking the Mafia CodeBook - 2004
MOBSTERS, GANGSTERS AND MEN OF HONOUR takes a sledgehammer to the walls of silence surrounding one of the most feared and glorified criminal organizations in the world. One of the few outsiders to ever gain access to the inner life of the Mafia, former RCMP analyst Pierre de Champlain not only describes the organization’s unique processes for inducting new members and its lesser-known beliefs and practices, he also analyzes the seemingly contradictory schism between established rules and actual behaviour. This is the ultimate guide for true-crime enthusiasts, law enforcement agencies, students of criminology and anyone who is intrigued by the bonds of greed, loyalty and power at any cost.
