This is the paperback version of Frank Costello Prime Minister of the Underworld Paperback that was published in 1976.
The back cover reads:
Frank Costello was the Godfather.
For more than 30 years he helped rule America’s Mafia “families”.
‘He welded them into the most efficient and merciless private-enterprise crime machine the world has seen. He grew rich on the thousands of millions of pounds clawed in from bootleg liqour, gambling, drugs, prostitution, extortion and blackmail…An Amazing story.”
Vividly told by the man who was his personal attorney during the whole of his reign, Costello ‘makes for racy reading – the portrait of a hoodlum, but also the vivid profile of an age and a morality.’
