This Pulitzer Prize-winner's account of the heist that inspired Goodfellas reveals the rest of the story that couldn't be told—until now (Publisher Weekly).

One of the biggest scores in Mafia history, the Lufthansa Airlines heist of 1978 has become the stuff of mafia legend—and a decades-long federal investigation. Now Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Anthony DeStefano sheds new light on this unsolved case using new evidence revealed during the 2015 trial of eighty-year-old mafioso Vincent Asaro.

For the first time, Asaro speaks out on his role in the brazen heist that removed millions of dollars from John F. Kennedy International Airport. This authoritative account goes behind the headlines and Hollywood movies, taking readers inside the ranks of America's infamous Mafia families—with never-before-told stories, late-breaking news, and bombshell revelations.

"A comprehensive account...impressive."—Publishers Weekly
