The thrilling and true account of racketeering and union corruption in mid-century New York, when unions and the mob were locked in a power struggle that reverberates to this day In 1949, in New York City's crowded Garment District, a union organizer named William Lurye was stabbed to death by a mob assassin. Through the lens of this murder case, prize-winning authors David Witwer and Catherine Rios explore American labor history at its critical turning point, drawing on FBI case files and the private papers of investigative journalists who first broke the story. A narrative that originates in the garment industry of mid-century New York, which produced over 80 percent of the nation's dresses at the time, Murder in the Garment District quickly moves to a national stage, where congressional anti-corruption hearings gripped the nation and forever tainted the reputation of American unions. Replete with elements of a true-crime thriller, Murder in the Garment District includes a riveting cast of characters, from wheeling and dealing union president David Dubinsky to the notorious gangster Abe Chait and the crusading Robert F. Kennedy, whose public duel with Jimmy Hoffa became front-page news. Deeply researched and grounded in the street-level events that put people's lives and livelihoods at stake, Murder in the Garment District is destined to become a classic work of history--one that also explains the current troubled state of unions in America.

"Murder Trail" tells the fascinating stories of eleven high-profile murder or multiple murder cases through the eyes of the men who accepted the challenges of solving them. In each case the detective must reach deep inside the brilliant but warped minds of the criminals. Drawing on the words of our real-life detectives, their families and colleagues, and where possible, the murderer himself, as well as on archive material— news footage, surveillance recordings, interrogations, and trial transcripts— "Murder Trail" provides a wholly revealing insight into the mind of the murderer. However, the focus is always on the detective, and in this book we look at the pressures on him from the media, his bosses, politicians, and victims' families.
The garment industry gained a foothold in Pennsylvania's hard-coal region as mines were closing. "Runaway" factories, especially from Manhattan, set up shop in mining towns where labor was plentiful and unions scarce. By the 1930s, garment factories employed thousands of wives and daughters of unemployed or underemployed coal miners. Organizing these workers proved difficult for the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU).

THE SECRET LOVES OF SENIOR SLEUTHS--AND A MOST UNTIMELY MURDER! Skeletons clatter merrily out of closets, in the third witty murder mystery of the delightfully cozy Hubbert and Lil mystery series-not the least of which is the disclosure of 84-year-old Lil's twenty-year secret love affair."Gray has the rare talent of being able to combine humor with sensitivity, and high comedy with realisticportrayals of genuine people."-The Virginian-PilotIn this one, everybody's favorite elderly amateur sleuth and her doting nephew-an unlikely but veritable dynamic duo-take on New York City's fashionistas and, quite unfortunately, the mob. At the tender age of 84, Aunt Lil has no shortage of gentlemen callers. So it's not exactly a surprise when she interrupts her favorite nephew and sleuthing partner-in-crime T.S. (at yet another failed attempt at making Crème Brulee) to beg for help. This time she needs a hand tidying up her Flushing apartment-which was once likened to Times Square just moments after midnight on New Year's Eve-in anticipation of a male visitor. What is surprising is the fact that T.S. has never heard of the guy-a man named Max Rosenbloom, fabled multimillionaire owner of Max Rose Fashions. And it's a downright shock that Max and Lil been secretly seeing each other-for over twenty years. But when Max is an hour late, Aunt Lil falls into an uncharacteristic daze. And after she asks T.S. to "leave her alone"-a phrase thus far absent from her vocabulary, a radio bulletin breaks the news of the quarter-century: Max has been killed in a car bomb explosion in Manhattan. Lil is overtaken with a private grief-which worries T.S., because, quite frankly, she's never been private about much of anything-until she snaps out of it with the realization that her planned meeting with Max and his untimely death must be connected.Convinced the love of her life has been murdered in cold blood, she resolves to solve the puzzling crime-with trusty T.S. by her side. Together, Aunt Lil and T.S. investigate the sophisticated trappings of the world of Manhattan fashion-including the lethal underbelly of the mob-controlled rag trade, white collar corporate embezzlement, and family secrets so chilling they leave even Aunt Lil speechless.

Gangland figures cannot function without their lawyers - their mouthpieces - who speak for them in court, obtain bail, throw doubt on the evidence and, if all that fails, try to obtain a reduced sentence. However, in the underworld, this is only half the job. Although many lawyers are honest, possibly the preferred type of lawyer for Gangland figures is dishonest - a shyster - who will act as a go-between with the police, provide false alibis, bribe and intimidate witnesses, jurors and judges and, from time to time, finance and set up robberies and burglaries. Occasionally these lawyers will kill on their own or their client's behalf, or may be killed themselves.
“Murder, Inc.” was the moniker of the Syndicate's firing squad, a ruthless group of men guilty of professionally committing 1,000 murders. Murder, Inc. is the book that exposed the Syndicate to the eyes of the world. First published in 1951, it rose to the top of the best-seller list, but later fell out-of-print. Now, here is a new edition of the classic that tells all about the great gangsters of the late '30s and '40s: Frank Costello, Louis ”Lepke” Buchalter, Meyer Lansky, Lucky Luciano, Buggsy Siegel, Johnny Torrio, Willie Sutton, Joey Adonis, Dutch Schultz. Here are the stories of how Pittsburgh Phil and Buggsy Goldstein literally set Puggy Feinstein on fire; how and why Kid Twist Reles sang to the D.A. for twelve straight days, confessing dozens of murders; how the killers' boss, Albert Anastasia, slipped through the arms of the law.From the highest levels of the U.S. government down to the lowest levels of street crime, the Syndicate infiltrated American life. Murder, Inc. tells how it was formally organized by the nation's ranking mob lords at the end of Prohibition to control all crime, from gambling to crooked politics to labor extortion and murder. It describes the carefully built organization with its board of governors and its kangaroo court, and shows how this massive and powerful organization was finally broken.For it was only from the murderers themselves that the truth could be learned. And no man was more qualified to tell the whole story than Burton Turkus, the Brooklyn assistant D.A. who listened to the killers' tales and who sent seven of them to the electric chair. Together with Sid Feder, a veteran journalist, they produced Murder, Inc., the definitive work on the most dangerous group of gangsters the law has ever known.
