For more than twenty-five years as a reporter with The Philadelphia Inquirer, George Anastasia has made tracking the American Mafia his regular beat, writing investigative pieces, profiles and slices of underworld life. Mobfiles is a compilation of his best work—stories told from street level and often based on insights and access provided by investigators, prosecutors and the mobsters themselves. Mobfiles provides the true stories around which classics like The Godfather and The Sopranos have been built.
George Anastasia, a former reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer, is the author of five books of nonfiction. Four of these, including Mobfather, are about the Philadelphia mob. He has won many awards for investigative journalism and magazine writing.
