Description de l’éditeur
Gaetano Thomas Lucchese worked his way up in the ranks of organized crime during the years before the Castellammarese War of 1929-1931. Lucchese was a hit man for Tommaso Gagliano and others. An early conviction for auto theft in 1922 is perhaps the only time Lucchese was imprisoned for any length of time. During testimony before the New York State Crime Commission in 1952 he had little to say about his prior arrests. My e-book looks closely at several murders attributed to Lucchese and several more accomplices. Following Joseph Pinzolo's 1928 murder Tommy and his brother left New York City quickly one afternoon. Cleaners found Pinzolo's body inside an office of the Brokaw Building in Manhattan. He was a partner with the Lucchese brothers in a fruit and juice business, California Dry Fruit Importers.
