Written by the bestselling author of The Ice Man, The Butcher is a gripping and disturbing fly-on-the-wall account of the US Drug Enforcement Administration’s four-year hunt to bring down Tommy ‘Karate’ Pitera, a drug-dealing, murderous capo in the Bonanno crime family.

Born in 1954 and raised in Gravesend, Brooklyn, Pitera was a thin boy with a high-pitched voice who was bullied as a result of his feminine voice. As a teenager, he became obsessed with martial arts and with a religious fervour began studying karate to protect himself. After winning a karate tournament, he travelled to Japan, where he was trained by a martial arts expert for three years.

Upon returning home in 1974, Pitera was a very different human being. Quiet and introspective, sullen and aloof, he had developed his body into a fighting machine. He began associating with gangsters from the Bonanno family and was soon dealing drugs on a huge scale, while simultaneously embarking on a killing spree that spanned almost two decades.

In 1992, Pitera was sentenced to life in prison for murdering six people and supporting a massive drug-dealing operation. Yet this covered only a fraction of the crimes he committed. Pitera is thought to have murdered more than 60 people, cutting many of his victims into pieces before burying them on Staten Island.

Exhaustively researched and written with the cooperation of the DEA agents who hunted Pitera down, The Butcher is the perfect good-versus-evil story and will send shivers down the spine of even the most hardened true-crime reader.

Zenmuron 2010-12-28 16:05
Lättläst och underhållande bok om Mafioson och mördaren Tommy Pitera som var en capo I Bonnanofamiljen i New York. Pitera är en ovanligt ondskefull snubbe och carlo skriver i korta kapitel dels om Piteras uppväxt och maffialiv, men också om DEA agenterna som jagade honom och om de maffiabossar och underhuggare som styrde New Yorks undre värld från 40-talet fram till 90-talet.

Boken är en riktig pageturner och jag har svårt att sluta läsa men den saknar också lite djup. Pitera var trogen Omertá och har inte pratat med Carlo om sina brott, till skillnad från t ex Kuklinski som Carlo också skrivit en bok om.

Det slutgiltiga betyget blir en start 3a. 3+++
