John Gotti—a.k.a. “The Dapper Don” rose to power in the mid-1980s through the assassination of a Gambino family mafia boss, and quickly made his mark on New York City as one of the most dangerous mob bosses the country had ever seen. He also earned himself another nickname, “The Teflon Don”, because no criminal charges ever stuck. Until one finally did in 1992—and The Gotti Wars by John Gleeson goes behind the scenes for a first-hand account of how one Assistant U.S. Attorney managed to take down the ruthless, clever mobster once and for all. This true crime story is no less fascinating for being real, showcasing the rise of one young lawyer and the ultimate fall of a New York City gangster boss.
