Local best seller: Early Organized Crime in Detroit

Follow the book on Facebook for updates.

5-star review from fellow crime writer Daniel Waugh, author of  Gangs of St. Louis: “This book is an outstanding and long overdue look at the rich and often graphically violent early history of Detroit’s Mafia family. A direct descendant of some of the protagonists, Buccellato’s impeccable research and writing skills elevate this work to the upper-echelon of American true crime literature.

I don’t want to give too many spoilers away, but suffice it to say that Dr. Buccellato’s work fills a crucial gap in American Mafia history. A must read? Most definitely!”

The book is available at Detroit area book sellers and on Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites.
