9780061744662: The Butcher: Anatomy of a Mafia Psychopath

The New York Times bestselling author of Gaspipe and The Ice Man, Phillip Carlo returns with a hair-raising portrait of arguably the most depraved psychopath in the history of the Mafia, mob enforcer Tommy “Karate” Pitera. The Butcher tells the riveting true story of a hit man who loved his work too much—a maniac believed responsible for more than sixty remarkably brutal murders—whom even organized crime’s most cold-blooded assassins feared. Another riveting journey into the darkest corners of the underworld, Carlo’s The Butcher is destined to be a true crime classic alongside Wiseguys by Nicholas Pileggi and Underboss by Peter Maas.

From the Back Cover:

Tommy “Karate” Pitera was not likeother mafiosi. A capo in the notoriousBonanno family—a deadlymartial artist highly skilled with knives andother lethal weapons—Pitera murdered hisway to becoming one of the premier assassinsin the New York mafia during the 1980s.He didn’t just whack people; he diabolicallymade them disappear forever. In hushedwhispers people spoke of Pitera’s secret burialgrounds and the grotesque things he did tohis victim’s bodies. If the Mafia had a JeffreyDahmer, it was surely Tommy Pitera.

Offering the first-ever look at the life andcrimes of Tommy Pitera, New York Timesbestselling author Philip Carlo exposes theman behind some of the most horrific murdersin Mafia history—and tells the story ofthe heroic investigator who brought himdown. Cloaked in the bloody history of LaCosa Nostra, The Butcher is Carlo’s mostfrightening portrayal yet of the depraveddepths within a psychopath’s mind.

About the Author:

Philip Carlo was born and raised on the mean streets of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn—the same streets Tommy Pitera hailed from. There, Carlo earned a Ph.D. in street smarts, and he escaped a life of crime by writing about it with unusual insight. He is the author of the bestsellers The Night Stalker, about notorious serial killer Richard Ramirez, and The Ice Man, about infamous Mafia contract killer Richard Kuklinski. Carlo lives with his wife, Laura, in New York City.
