Jerry Capeci

Jerry Capeci, a New York-based award-winning reporter, columnist and author for more than four decades, has written or co-authored seven books about the Mafia. His latest book, "Mob Boss: The Story of Little Al D'Arco, The Man Who Brought Down The Mafia," co-authored by Tom Robbins, was published on October 1, 2013. Capeci and Robbins spent hundreds of hours interviewing D'Arco about his life, his loves, his crimes, including his murders, and the reason why he flipped. The authors also reviewed thousands of court and FBI documents and his testimony at 15 trial. D'Arco was the first acting Mafia boss to cooperate when he flipped in 1991. His testimony helped send more than 50 mob figures to prison, and his decision to defect prompted many others to follow his lead, including then-Gambino family underboss, Sammy Bull Gravano. Capeci was a crime reporter for the New York Post, where he worked for 20 years. From 1986 to 1999, he worked for the New York Daily News, where he wrote "Gang Land," the first weekly newspaper column in America devoted specifically to organized crime, from 1989 to 1995. The following year, he took the column online, as www.ganglandnews.com, where it has been ever since. From 2002 until 2007, the column also appeared in The New York Sun.
