You think The Sopranos are fiction? Meet the GTA and Montrealís Mafia personalities and their activities and you will change your mind. In Vito Rizzuto: Canadaís Country Club Mobster, veteran crime reporter Peter Edwards guides readers through the complex inter-relationships of the crime families in Canada and their street colleagues, the biker and street gangs. From sophisticated business dealings to brutal hits and the scandals emerging from the Charbonneau inquiry, mobster influence is more wide-ranging than many of us can imagine. And cops, organized crime experts and other mobsters all agree that the kingpin had long been Vito Rizzuto until his incarceration for racketeering in the US. Recently released, everyone now waits to see whatís next in the bloody restructuring of the Canadian mafia.
