SUMMARY

On May 5, 1981, three rebellious member of New York's Bonanno crime family were gunned down in a Brooklyn social club. One of he gunmen was Vito Rizzuto, a man who would rise to the top of the underworld in Canada and then expand across continents to become a global superboss. The Sixth Family reveals the hidden history of the rise of the Rizzuto clan, the alliances it forged around the world and the bloody events that led to charges against Vito Rizzuto in the United States and Italy for racketeering and corruption. As police in the United States, Italy and Canada notions about the nature of authority within the Mafia were called into question. Who was this so-called "John Gotti of Canada"? How did he become one of the biggest names in global crime? Picking up where the best-selling hardcover edition of The Sixth Family left of, Lee Lamothe and Adrian Humphreys expand the story to tell of Rizzuto's aggressive but losing battle to thwart American justice and present in-depth coverage of Rizzuto's New York trial. In the wake of Rizzuto's extradition, police in Quebec carried out Project Colisee, a sensational sweep of the underworld that netted 80 suspected members of the Sixth Family's criminal and financial network in an effort to declaw the Mafia. Is Rizzuto's near-perfect Mafia coming to an end? Or is the underworld legend simply to powerful to fall? "A Machiavellian mystery tour of the mob underworld. Essential reading... for anyone concerned about the intrusion of traditional organized crime into every facet of our society." - The Globe and Mail "With a reporter's eye for details and a novelist's gift for storytelling, the two authors lay bare the Rizzuto family's inner workings and international connections." - The Record (Kitchener)Lamothe, Lee is the author of 'The Sixth Family: The Collapse of the New York Mafia and the Rise of Vito Rizzuto', published 2008 under ISBN 9780470154458 and ISBN 0470154454.
