The newest edition to Barricade's True Crime paperback series, The Life and Times of Lepke Buchalter is the first biography of the only organized crime boss to be executed in the United States. As a labor racketeer who controlled New York’s Lower East Side garment industry, Louis "Lepke" Buchalter became the overseer of the notorious killing-on-assignment machine know as "Murder Inc." Impeccably researched by organized crime historian Paul R. Kavieff, this book traces his story from childhood, through his incredibly sophisticated rackets, to his ultimate conviction and execution… all the names, dates, and brutal murders are described in this unique history of labor unrest in turn-of-the-century New York.
