The Dapper Don A cocky kid from the streets of East New York, he rose to become one of the most feared men in the nation.


Establishing a power base through brilliant politicking and blood-chilling ruthlessness, at 45 he took control of America's richest, most powerful crime family following the gangland-style execution of his predecessor.

Though the target of almost contionous FBI and police surveillance, he has spent little time in prison . . . and has neverbeen convicted of racketeering, drug-trafficking or murder.

Prize-winning journalists John Cummings and Ernest Volkman's shocking true account of the brutal and meteoric rise of John "Johhny Boy" Gotti from Brooklyn "bone-breaker" to lord of the Gambino Family -- a riveting exploration into the the bloody machinery of La Cosa Nostra operating on the dark side of the American dream.
