Courtroom diagram on end papers. 442 pages. A behind-the-scenes tour of the longest-running criminal trial ever to be held in a federal court -- the so-called Pizza Connection trial, which pitted the full resources of the U.S. government against 22 Mafia defendants accused of a $1.65 billion heroin-smuggling & money-laundering conspiracy that stretched from Sicily to Brooklyn to Brazil to a chain of pizzerias. What happens when the stakes are so high that truth & justice take second place in the heat to win? The roster of names reads like a Who's Who of crime & the law, including Rudolph Giuliani, now mayor of NY, then the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY & the "invisible maestro" of the entire prosecution.
