Synopsis

Frank The Enforcer Nitti is arguably the most glamorized gangster in history. He was an infamous Chicago wiseguy who eventually rose to command the city's premier underworld organization—The Outfit. Though he has been widely mentioned in fictional works, this is the first book to document Nitti's real-life criminal career alongside his pop culture persona, with special chapters devoted to the many television shows, movies, and songs featuring Nitti. Author Ronald Humble chronicles The Enforcer's beginnings in New York's Navy Street Boys to his position as Al Capone's second-in-command and eventual leadership of the outfit, with bodies piling up along the way.
