By George Anastasia. An underrated book on the less exhaustively covered Philly Mob, Blood and Honor relies heavily on the recollections of Nick "the Crow" Caramandi; Anastasia leaves Caramandi's quotes more or less alone, so you really get a flavor from his speech. That said, there is SO much cocaine-fueled double-crossing and so many dudes named Joey that you won't be the first person to lose the plot towards the end.
You don't see this one much in hardcover, and this copy is in nice shape; the dust jacket isn't perfect -- corner rubbing, mild edgewear, some creases on the back and a sticker on the spine, plus whatever's going on with Jimmy Breslin's proprietary gold blurb sticker on the front? -- but the book itself is square, the pages bright and tight. If you just can't with the NYC Families anymore, this is a recommended pickup.
