Publisher Description

This true crime memoir of Mafia-controlled NYC goes from mean streets to shadowy back rooms and the glittering Copacabana at its peak.

Joe Silvestri was a tough kid from Queens who went on to be one of New York’s most respected mafia muscle man. He worked security at the glamorous Copacabana, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Tom Jones and Frank Sinatra. He was there as a guest of Sammy Davis, Jr., the night Mickey Mantle and other legendary Yankees got involved in the infamous “basebrawl.”

They called him The Fixer because he had a talent for making problems go away. He knew how to use his fists when necessary, and he always followed Mob protocol when having a sit down with an adversary: You never break bread with the enemy.
Award-winning Mob author Dennis Griffin joins forces with Joey “the Fixer” Silvestri to tell a tale of a bygone era when organized crime dominated New York City. It was a place where neighborhood bosses controlled their turf, and your best friend might suddenly become your deadly enemy. It was Joey’s world, and his stories bring it to life in all its drama, glamour, and violence.
