The Butcher : Anatomy of a Mafia Psychopath, Paperback

The Butcher : Anatomy of a Mafia Psychopath Paperback



Written by the bestselling author of The Ice Man, The Butcher is a gripping and disturbing fly-on-the-wall account of the US Drug Enforcement Administration's four-year hunt to bring down Tommy 'Karate' Pitera, a drug-dealing, murderous capo in the Bonanno crime family.

In 1992, Pitera was sentenced to life in prison for murdering six people and supporting a massive drug-dealing operation.

Yet this covered only a fraction of the crimes he committed.

Pitera is thought to have murdered more than 60 people, cutting many of his victims into pieces before burying them on Staten Island.

Exhaustively researched and written with the cooperation of the DEA agents who hunted Pitera down, The Butcher will send shivers down the spine of the most hardened reader.
