Havana Nocturne How the Mob Owned Cuba and Then Lost It to the Revolutio

T.J. English is best known for his gripping chronicle of the New York Irish gang the Westies, as well as his authoritative history of Irish organized crime, "Paddy Whacked." English now turns his attention to Cuba with "Havana Nocturne: How the Mob Owned Cuba and Then Lost It to the Revolution." English explores infamous mob figures such as Lucky Luciano, and their operations in the 1950s, when Cuba and its capital were one of the most desirable destinations for pleasure seekers. That was before a revolutionary named Fidel Castro whipped up a frenzy and not only changed the course of world history, but also left the Mafia quite angry. ($27.95 / 416 pages / Morrow)
