The DeCavalcantes were a throwback to an earlier era of organized crime, a tightly-knit, closely controlled group that would withstand comparisons to TVs famed Sopranos. And like Tony Soprano, the boss was harboring secrets, but he evidently didn't keep them well enough.
CITY CONFIDENTIAL reveals what happened to the DeCavalcantes--and their iron grip over the gritty port city of Elizabeth, New Jersey--when three of its leaders were arrested for the murder of their former boss, Johnny Boy D'Amato. In the end, it wasn't that he was whacked, or how, that made headlines... it was why.
