"Gotti's Rules," which was released last month by Harper Collins, goes behind the scenes of New York City's Gambino crime family from the point of view of the man who betrayed them, John Alite. Alite was a hit-man who later testified against close friend Junior Gotti. In his book, Anastasia uses FBI documentation and interviews to construct the story of John J. Gotti's rise to notority and how Junior later filled his big shoes.
Anastasia has spent decades reporting on the Philadelphia mob. He's written books about the Scarfo organization, Tommy DelGiorno and the South Philly mafia and corrupt cop and gangster Rob Previte, among others.
