Description

In the early 1960s, Roy DeMeo became involved with John Gotti and other members of the infamous Gambino crime family. Roy rose rapidly through the ranks to become a Gambino soldier, and eventually a capo, a made member of the family. He masterminded the biggest auto-theft ring in New York history, and by the late 1970s had also become one of the most feared hitmen in the city - with more than 200 brutal slayings attributed to him. At home, however, Roy DeMeo was an attentive and caring husband and father to his children - the kind of man who provided for his family and doted on his son.In For the Sins of My Father, DeMeo's only son, Albert, recounts the chilling rise and fall of the man who led the Gambino family's most fearsome killers and thieves. Coming of age in an opulent Long Island house where money is abundant but its source unclear, Al becomes his father's confidant, sent to call in loans at age fourteen when Roy is forced into hiding.
