Format: Hardcover
All history buffs have heard of Meyer Lansky, Al Capone, and Bugsy Siegel, but few have heard of Paul Volpe, the boss of the Toronto Mafia from the early-1960's up to his death in 1983. I picked up this book, intrigued by the fact that it was someone different and, especially, someone from another country. The book detailed the Canadian mob while weaving in the biography of Volpe - his bootlegging days as a young man, to his initiation into the Mob, his stints in jail, and then the details of his death. If you are a history buff who enjoys reading about the Mafia and are interested in learning more about Mafia bosses from other countries, then this is definitely a book you'll want to check out. The only problem is that it's rare and you might have a difficult time finding copies.

HASH(0xa7578954) out of 5 stars Really good June 5 2000
By Megan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have always been interested in the mob and, when I saw this book, I had to read it. Unfortunately, it was out of print, so I had to do a special order to get it and I got it. It was very good and Paul Volpe was a very interesting gangster to read about. It kinda sucks how his life ended the way it did; but, other than that, it was one of the most interesting biographies that I ever read.
