As mob families go, the Philadelphia Mafia is the most dysfunctional familyof all--with brother turning against brother, sons turning on their fathers.In 1993, an embittered legacy of rivalry and hatred exploded into a brutal, bloody battle between old world mobster and the young, flamboyant JoeyMerlino. However, this would be warfare different from any other. This time, theFBI had it all down on tape.

Among the mobsters caught on tape:



John Stanfa, the violent, often irrational, paranoid old-school mob don battlinga new generation of savage young turks.
