One of the most shocking and compelling stories to ever emerge from the world of organised crime

Meet the DeMeo gang - the most deadly killers the Mafia has ever known. They started out as a small-time Brooklyn corner crew, but once the killing started it didn't stop. They became the hitmen of choice for their Mafia bosses, who came to know, use, and utimately to fear them. They would kill for profit and pleasure, cold-blooded plans and sudden violent whim. Now thanks to to the personal revelations of one of the key players, the inside story of these mafia serial killers can be told in all its astonishing detail. 'A murderous crew that every wisequy in New York was afraid of... compelling and authoritative' - Nicholas Pileggi, author of Goodfellas
