This Week in Gang Land

Mob-Busting G-Woman In Monster Case Gets A Clean Bill Of Health; Retires

Gang Land Exclusive!John RubeoJoy Adam, the main FBI agent in the huge indictment of 46 defendants linked to five crime families that has been hampered by an FBI inquiry into agent misconduct, retired last week after more than 25 years as a trail-blazing mob-busting G-Woman in Uncle Sam's decades-long legal assault against the mob, Gang Land has learned.

Sources say Adam, who has been part of many prosecutions of top Genovese mobsters since she joined the FBI squad that focused on that family in the early 1990s, including a 2003 conviction of the family's legendary boss Vincent (Chin) Gigante, put in her retirement papers about a month ago, shortly after the FBI's internal probe found no wrongdoing by her.

Sources say the FBI did sanction and suspend agent William Inzerillo for "technical violations" of FBI policies for failing to properly supervise and maintain information that was obtained by the FBI during its five year investigation of powerful Bronx-based Genovese capo Pasquale (Patsy) Parrello by his longtime associate, cooperating witness John (J.R.) Rubeo.

John CarnegliaSuspected Triggerman In Big Paul Castellano Rubout Released From Prison

John Carneglia, who sidled up to Mafia boss Paul (Big Paul) Castellano wearing a tan trenchcoat and a Russian Cossack Hat on December 16, 1985 and allegedly fired the fatal shots that catapulted John Gotti to the top of the Gambino family, was released from federal prison last week after 28 years for heroin trafficking in a case that has long been tied to the execution.

Christopher LondonioLawyer: 'Made-For-TV Movie' Prison Escape A Made-Up Fantasy Of A Sore-Losing G-Man

Top New York federal officials announced last week that they had thwarted an escape plot by a Luchese soldier that "sounded like a script for a made-for-TV movie." But yesterday, the mobster's lawyer said the charge was closer to a cartoon fantasy – one that was likely invented out of whole cloth by an FBI agent still smarting from the four times the defense attorney has bested him in court in recent years.

Mob Boss: The BookUnless you get really lucky, and find a copy squirreled away in the wrong section of your local bookstore, you won't be able to get a first printing of Mob Boss: The Life Of Little Al D'Arco, The Man Who Brought Down The Mafia. But there are still some second print versions of the hardcover available as gifts or for your own reading pleasure.  

Because of the heavy demand, Thomas Dunne Books went to the well again for a second printing of Mob Boss, the book that The New York Times called a "gripping, novelistic biography – a bulls-eye."

The mass market, paperback version was published in 2015, however, and it is available online and at your favorite bookstores for about eight bucks. You still should be able to pick up a copy of the hard cover at your favorite bookstore, or, as Claude Raines might say to Humphrey Bogart, from any number of the usual online suspects: Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and BooksAMillion, as well as an independent book seller near you.

See why Mob Boss has been praised by Pete Hamill, Jimmy Breslin, Nicholas Pileggi, Mister District Attorney Robert Morgenthau – as well as readers everywhere.

Mob Boss is also available in a special BIG PRINT edition. And for those who would rather hear every word of the 406 page book read to them, Mob Boss is also available on an MP3 CD from Tantor Audio.
