    DescriptionTommy "Karate" Pitera was not likeother mafiosi. A capo in the notoriousBonanno family--a deadlymartial artist highly skilled with knives andother lethal weapons--Pitera murdered hisway to becoming one of the premier assassinsin the New York mafia during the 1980s.He didn't just whack people; he diabolicallymade them disappear forever. In hushedwhispers people spoke of Pitera's secret burialgrounds and the grotesque things he did tohis victim's bodies. If the Mafia had a JeffreyDahmer, it was surely Tommy Pitera.Offering the first-ever look at the life andcrimes of Tommy Pitera, New York Timesbestselling author Philip Carlo exposes theman behind some of the most horrific murdersin Mafia history--and tells the story ofthe heroic investigator who brought himdown. Cloaked in the bloody history of LaCosa Nostra, The Butcher is Carlo's mostfrightening portrayal yet of the depraveddepths within a psychopath's mind.
