GEORGE ANASTASIA

With "Gotti Rules: The Story of John Alite, Junior Gotti, and the Demise of the American Mafia," Philadelphia author George Anastasia does what he’s done best since his time reporting on mob crime for the Philadelphia "Inquirer": get to the heart, blood, marrow and guts of the matter bluntly, yet with the passion its subjects conjure. As he’s done with Philly’s menacing Scarfo family ("Blood and Honor"), "The Last Gangster" (NJ capo Robert Previte), even "The Summer Wind" (murderer Thomas Capano), Anastasia finds focus throughout "Gotti Rules" in a central Shakespearean character—the brutal Alite, John Gotti Jr.’s longtime pal and protector—and presents how one man savagely seeks revenge against others.
