Publisher's Summary

They were the DeMeo gang - the most deadly hit men in organized crime. Their Mafia higher-ups came to know, use, and ultimately fear them as the Murder Machine. They killed for profit and for pleasure, following cold-blooded plans and wild whims, from the mean streets of New York to the Florida Gold Coast, and from coast to coast. 

Now complete with personal revelations of one of the key players, this is the savage story that leaves no corpse unturned in its terrifying telling.

©1992 Gene Mustain and Jerry Capeci (P)2020 Audible, Inc.

One of the Best

I’ve loved this book for years and was so excited to see it on Audible. Jerry Capeci and Gene Mustain are masters at telling Gangland stories and do an especially outstanding job with Murder Machine. You think John Gotti was scary? Read/listen to this book and learn about the below-the-radar-frightening Roy DeMeo crew. The DeMeo story may not be as well-known as some others out there, but it should be! I highly recommend this book!

stop browsing and just get it.

I don't usually bother to write anything and just rate a book with stars but this true story reads like a novel, regardless of the complex story it tells. enjoyed it so much I felt like I had to put my two cents in.

regardless of the overused idiom "don't judge a book by its cover", when I purchased this book it didn't have cover art in the audible app. I kind of felt hesitant to buy it based on that fact alone (which is pretty ridiculous) but my hunger for a comprehensive story about 'the butcher of flatlands' overcame my trepidation about buying a book with no cover.

it's rare you find a true crime story involving so many murders, in which one of its heros is not a member of law enforcement, and is instead technically a well established career criminal. The central character in this book whose eyes we get to glimpse the story through is Dominic Montiglio, a decorated Vietnam veteran. The authors do a great job conveying the complexity of his situation, and we get the best look inside the DeMeo crew we'll probably ever get.

I feel like this story is often overlooked because of John Gotti's attention hungry attitude. The story of Dominic Montiglio, Nino Gaggi, Roy Demeo, and the Gemini Lounge is so much more interesting, violent, and complex, than the story of John Gotti stumbling his way through the Gambino family and into prison.

Accurate telling of the Demeo crew from all angles

Great listen that keeps you interested all throughout. Even includes mentions of other Gambino family heavyweights. Narrator does well with names and voices. A good listen for those who enjoy stories about the mob and just those who enjoy true crime as while Roy Demeo was a mobster he definitely fits the bill as a psycho serial killer as well. He's not your average gangster and neither were his crew of degenerates.

great book

I really like books and stories about this crew. They're more fascinating than Gotti. Too bad there isn't more about these guys.

Amazing read!!!

This is probably the best book on the Mafia on audible and I have them all. Once you get a few chapters into this, it will have dispelled any romantic perception that people have about the Mafia and it’s not for the squeamish or faint hearted.
