Kurzbeschreibung

8. März 2011
Goodfella Tapes by George Anastasia is the true story of how the FBI recorded a mob war and brought down a mafia don. A riveting, eye-opening true crime masterwork in the vein of Wiseguy, Underboss, Havana Nocturne, The Valachi Papers, and other bestselling exposés of life in La Cosa Nostra, Goodfella Tapes is an astonishing story of the brutal acts and remarkable blunders of  soldiers, capos, and kingpins of the Philadelphia mob and the ingenuity of government agents that, combined, help topple a powerful criminal enterprise.

Buchrückseite

As mob families go, the Philadelphia Mafia is the most dysfunctional familyof all—with brother turning against brother, sons turning on their fathers.In 1993, an embittered legacy of rivalry and hatred exploded into a brutal,bloody battle between old world mobster and the young, flamboyant JoeyMerlino. However, this would be warfare different from any other. This time, theFBI had it all down on tape.

Among the mobsters caught on tape:

John Stanfa, the violent, often irrational, paranoid old-school mob don battlinga new generation of savage young turks.

Rosario Bellocchi , the young Sicilian-born hitman in love with his boss’sdaughter, who would do anything to get ahead—even kill his best friend.

John Veasey, the two-hundred-pound mad dog hitman who once had to postponea hit—in order to visit his parole officer.

Drawing on four years of investigative work, and more than two thousandtaped conversations, veteran true crime journalist George Anastasia takes readersinside the world of mobsters at war, and FBI agents so close on their heels thatt hey even watched onehit unfold live through asurveillance camera.

4.0 von 5 Sternen PREVIOUS REVIEW IS RIGHT ON 19. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I totally agree with the comments of the previous reviewer in that this book is totally worthwhile if you enjoy mob books. While taped conversations did authenticate the book, I would say that was my only complaint, since they are very disjointed and hard to understand. Also they are translated from Sicilian so that adds more confusion. The text part of the book is highly interesting, and I guess I would have liked SOME tape transcripts, but not as much. I found myself hoping for blocks of pages with no tape conversations since they were so hard to follow.
Overall, though, this is a very good story that really shows, I feel, the decline of organized crime in general. Not only are these guys incompetent, they really seem disorganized and you never get the feel that they are a mafia family, just a bunch of hoodlums playing wiseguy games. The whole "old mafia/new mafia" conflict really comes to light and eventually is the downfall of the Philadelphia mob. I also agree that "Murder Machine" is probably the best mob book I have read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Interesting look into the Philadelphia Mob 7. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
The FBI tapes provided here in the book allow for a great insight into the Philadelphia Mafia at a time of great confusion, botched hits, and mutiny in the ranks.
It's an overall good, quick read but there's better out there if you're not looking specifically to find out about the Philly Mob. A good buy is MURDER MACHINE by Gene Mustain and Jerry Capeci.
It's good to see that the FBI recordings are left untampered with so the "evidence" allows you to draw you're own conclusions. Although this sometimes proves confusing with many unfinished sentances and people cutting in to another's sentance.
I do recommend this book as it does provide a quick and cheap read which is quite fascinating.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad 12. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This was a good read because it shows the Philly family at a crossroads. It gives a good account on the bloody and brief reign of John Stanfa. He was about as able to lead a family as a baboon. It was amazing how the previous boss Nicky Scarfo held the family together while nearly losing his mind. Then to watch Stanfa attempt to re-organize it A good read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good FBI transcripts 19. Mai 2000
Von Eric Aros
Format:Taschenbuch
It's an average mafia book with good details. The good details come from the fact that Anastasia has actual transcripts from the FBI wiretappings of the Philly mob. Don't make much of an effort to read, unless you really like the Philly mob.

The Goodfella Tapes takes a deep look inside of a powerful Cosa Nostra crime family. The material was well presented and very thorough. Insight on all of the major players and a good follow-up on those involved.
