DiCarlo: Buffalo's First Family of Crime is the historical biography of Mafioso Joseph J. DiCarlo, once known as “the Al Capone of Buffalo” and as western New York's “Public Enemy No. 1.”
Son of the region's first known Sicilian underworld boss, DiCarlo was rejected as heir to his father's criminal empire. After spending troubled years as a vassal of the influential Stefano Magaddino, DiCarlo and his underlings wandered, seeking their fortunes in Youngstown, Ohio, and Miami Beach, Florida, before returning home to witness the bloody disintegration of western New York's Mafia organization.
The authors utilize DiCarlo's colorful and violent life story as a window into the history of the powerful Magaddino Crime Family and the American Mafia network, while chronicling the parallels between the life of DiCarlo and the history of the criminal organization that was founded by his father.
“This is, truly, the definitive piece about the Buffalo... More > Mafia.” - Lee Coppola, award-winning Buffalo journalist.< Less
