Description

Filled with paranoid mobsters, clever scams, and deep betrayals, "Blood and Money" gives a unique insight into one of the most successful gangs ever to operate on American soil. By the time Ron Gonen arrived in New York City he had broken out of prison in Germany, been exiled from Israel, fled England as a prime suspect in a multi-million dollar crime ring, and had been chased out of Guatemala. Gonen lived life in the fast lane until things spiralled out of control. In the 1980s, a small group of Israeli nationals set up one of the most lucrative crime syndicates in New York City's history. With rackets ranging from drug dealing to contract killings, their crime spree was so violent that it wasn't long before they were dubbed the 'Israeli Mafia'. The gang went to war with the Italian mafia, killed Russian gangsters and pulled off the biggest gold heist in the history of Manhattan's Diamond District. They would have become the most powerful gang in the New York underworld had Gonen not decided to risk his life and become an FBI informant. "Blood and Money" is his story.
