Mob stories

Books » Our lists » Mob stories

Fifty years since The Godfather, we’ve assembled some of the world’s greatest mafia stories.

Blood, as they say, is thicker than water. And when criminality courses through the veins of an entire family, powerful organisations emerge, striking fear into their competitors, law enforcement and the wider community. In 1969, Mario Puzo’s novel The Godfather introduced the world to the terrifying inner-workings of the Corleone crime family. To celebrate the 50th birthday of this towering classic, we’ve brought together a collection of chilling mob stories where loyalty is a bond broken only by death. Bada-bing!
