Last Days of the Sicilians by Ralph Blumenthal, Stated First Edition



Last Days of the Sicilians by Ralph Blumenthal. TimesBooks, 1988. Stated first edition hardcover with dust jacket. A deep look into the heart of the Mafia and the story of a war in the streets for the highest of stakes. It started on July 12, 1979 with the gruesome ambush at a Brooklyn restaurant. The hit launched an FBI investigation that soon became the largest in the bureau's history, as agents uncovered a trail leading to a clandestine arm of the Sicilian Mafia. Evidence pointed to an all but unknown criminal franchise at work in the US within the strife-torn Cosa-nostra. The FBI had stumbled across a billion-dollar drug pipeline that funneled tons of Turkish morphine base to Sicilian labs sending heroine into the US through pizza parlors, cafes and boutiques. Where the 'French Connection' ended the 'Pizza Connection began.'
