Vincent EspositoFor A Measly $7000, Chin Gigante's Son Vincent Beat A College Graduation Day Assault

Gang Land Exclusive!So far this year, it's cost Vincent Esposito, the youngest son of legendary Mafia boss Vincent (Chin) Gigante, about $240,000 to pay for a 24-7 armed guard outside his Upper East Side home to make sure he doesn't run away from a pending extortion charge.

But three decades ago, Gang Land has learned, it cost just $7,000 for Esposito to beat a much more violent accusation.

Back in May of 1989, on the night that young Vincent was celebrating his graduation from NYU, he allegedly smashed a chair over the head of a woman who had rebuffed his advances.

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. 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.
