In , Ulbricht, a year-old libertarian idealist and former Boy Scout, launched 'a website where people could buy anything anonymously, with no trail whatsoever that could lead back to them'.

About the author
The Calabrian mafia is Australia's oldest, largest and most ruthless crime syndicate, trafficking drugs worth billions of dollars and laundering the proceeds through sophisticated international networks. Enforcing discipline with age-old tools of violence and intimidation, the Calabrians have been responsible for nearly 40 murders in Australia since the mids and many more before that.
At home, Richard Kuklinski was a dedicated suburban family man; on the street, he was the Iceman, a professional hit man and lethal scam artist, a man so heartless he kept one of his victims frozen for over two years to disguise the time of death. Then undercover agent Dominick Polifrone posed as a mobster and began a deadly game of cat and mouse.
Hooked on the limitless profits of the drug trade, organised crime has grown so powerful that it now poses a major threat to Australia's national security. Clive Small and Tom Gilling show how Australian crime gangs, in partnership with violent international syndicates, have exploited lax law enforcement and corruption on the nation's waterfront to import narcotics on a vast scale from Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.

His doting mother's pet name for the boy evolved into his famous alias, "Chin", a nickname that struck fear throughout organized crime as he routinely ordered the murders of mobsters who violated the Mafia code. In a terrible twist of fate, Moore himself was kidnapped and subsequently held captive by Somali pirates for days.
Here, in his own words, is the true story of America's wildest flying hero, of his extraordinary heroism, and of his greatest battle of all-the fight to survive. The legendary Marine Corps officer and his bunch of misfits, outcasts, and daredevils gave a new definition to "hell-raising" - on the ground and in the skies. His testimony directly led to the convictions of dozens of high-ranking made men including John Gotti, Vincent Gigante, and his own uncle, Nicky Scarfo - sparking the beginning of the end of La Cosa Nostra.
While the style fell into occassional repetetiveness, Perhaps this was purposeful to give it a journalistic story quality. Most importantly this story resonated is an authentic description by a person who fell into a complicated and painful lifestyle, too young to understand what trap he had stepped into. When someone is a made man, the very thing that made him so potentially traps him for life.
BOOK REVIEW: ‘Mafia Prince’
It is an insight into the complexity that is the mafia, that attracts people to an idea of honour, which is then subverted by individuals, leaders whose weak egos lead them to drown in their lust for power or just simply slide into sociopathy. Its a pity this tight knit society What did you love best about Mafia Prince? An honest read.
The best kind. Not one dull minute. What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative? The narrator was the best! Which scene was your favorite? When Philip decided to become a whistle blower and think of himself and his family. Sometimes it is very difficult to make the intelligent choice. Everybody loves a winner. If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be? Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future. Any additional comments? I really couldn't put this book down.
It is very well written and well read.
Great Mafia Books for the Beach
I felt like someone was sitting across the table from me talking just to me. I love honesty in a story, and this book takes the academy award for that. Narrator did an excellent job with his spot on accent. Book itself is nothing shocking or revealing for anyone who has read about the mafia in the past. However, on a deeper note, it is fascinating to learn about internal working of organized crime.
The depiction of treachery and deceit between phil and his no good uncle is what makes this a worth while listen. Also enjoyed the mafia lingo and the related terms. Especially the "sign of the gun", which I now use during safety briefs to warn my troops to either behave "or else it's this God bless Phil for changing his ways, wish him all the luck. Would you consider the audio edition of Mafia Prince to be better than the print version?
I've not read the print version, but assume the audio version goes further to endear the criminals to the reader, which, in my humble opinion is unfortunate. I haven't read any other books by this author. Have you listened to any of L. How does this one compare?
Mafia Prince by Phil Leonetti | Running Press
I haven't heard any other books by this reader. If you could give Mafia Prince a new subtitle, what would it be? I had mixed feelings about the book. It's generally well written, the story, however, seems to work hard to exonerate the Mafia Prince from his crimes. The FBI might have given him his freedom but in my opinion he should have had many more years in prison to reflect on the lives he damaged, either through violence, theft, intimidation, torture and cold blooded murder. As an Italian, I resent and am disgusted at any suggestions that this is "This Thing".
Millions of Italians came to North America with nothing, suffered through poverty, while living law abiding, honorable lives, raising families with real notions of respect, pride, honor and decent family traditions. Once I remove my disgust with the personal choices made by the people in this book, I can concede that the story itself is well told. This makes goodfellas or any other crime novel seem terrible. Great story, great narrator and outstanding performance.
