Charlie Lucky: The Broadway Gangster (Paperback)
This is the true story of Charles Lucky Luciano, the man who organized crime. An immigrant Italian child, growing up on the filth-ridden, poor and deadly streets of New York city's infamous Lower East Side, in Manhattan. Through brutality, street smarts, manipulation, treachery, and murder, he became the leader of the American underworld and the most powerful crime boss of all time. The back drop to his rise to power was the glitz, glamour, fun and frivolity, and the reckless abandon of the Roaring Twenties.
