Just finished "The Black Hand" by Stephan Talty. It was about a mostly forgotten time in the very early 1900's when Italian immigrants from Southern Italy were tormenting thousands of people with extortion and kidnapping of childrenmostly in cities like NY and Chicago. It took 15 years to get it under control lead by Italian immigrant Joe Petrosino (who was killed for his efforts).
