Frank Costello: The Gangster With A Thousand Faces
 Picture
Publisher: Belmont Tower Books, 1974 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. Soft cover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall Probable first edition. The Godfather Series. "Millionaire mobster Frank Costello, the most successful underworld boss in the U.S., took the Mafia out of the Dark Ages and into the 20th century. The suave gangster posed as a business man, but under the respectable front, he was a hardened thug. As a street hood he carried a gun before he got others to do his killing for him. His closest associates were Joe Adonis and Albert Anastasia, architects of Murder, Inc. Costello looked the other way while they slaughtered more than 100 people. Costello, secret ruler of Tammany Hall, corrupted public officials on every level and cheated the government out of millions of dollars in unpaid income tax. Far from being kindly 'Uncle Frank, ' he was one of the most sinister figures in the history of crime." 199 pages. Mass market paperback. Book is in GOOD to VERY GOOD condition. Paper wrappers.
