238 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). "Popularly know as The Black Hand, the Mafia, which began in medieval Sicily as a patriotic group, has been and still is in control of organized crime in the United States. It has achieved this dubious distinction by the systematic liquidation of rival, non-Sicilian gangs. The mere itemization of this long and bloody reign of underworld terror will give every responsible citizen pause for thought - after he has stopped shivering! This book contains much new material derived from secret sources. Perhaps the most sensational of its revelations links key Mafia figures with the Allied Military Government in Italy. How one of the most powerful Mafia heads, under indictment for murder in this country, turned up as an aide to AMG, received letters of recommendation from United States Army officers, and at the same time conducted huge blackmarket operations in American supplies, is one of the monstrous disclosures. Why this same notorious criminal, following his arrest, was not returned to the U.S. until after the strange death of the key witness against him, is another part of the riddle that hints at the enormous secret strength of Mafia terrorism. (The author) courageously digs deep into the muck of vice and crime to throw light upon a ruthless gang of killers and racketeers whose influence is as evil as it is widespread." Small initials in pen on free rear endpaper. Dust jacket has light edge wear, creases at top edge with color loss - mainly at top of spine and flap-folds, one very small edge tear, minor browning.
