By the mid-1980s, the criminal underworld in the United States had become an ethnic polyglot; one of the most powerful organizations was none other than the Cuban mob. Known on both sides of the law as "the Corporation," the Cuban mob's power stemmed from a criminal culture embedded in south Florida's exile community—those who had been chased from the island by Castro's revolution and planned to overthrow the Marxist dictator and reclaim their nation. Drawing on insider testimony and decades of investigative material, T.J. English reveals how an entire generation of political exiles, refugees, racketeers, corrupt cops, and hitmen became caught up in an American saga of desperation and empire building.
"A mob saga that has it all—brotherhood and betrayal, swaggering power and glittering success, and a Godfather whose reach seems utterly unrivaled. What a relentless, irresistible read."—Don Winslow
