Smaldone: The Untold Story of an American Crime Family (Paperback)
Started by Italian brothers from North Denver, the high-profile Smaldone crime syndicate began in the bootlegging days of the 1920s and flourished into the 1980s. Connected to notorious crime figures, politicians, and presidents, Clyde Smaldone was the crime family's leader. Through candid interviews and firsthand accounts, Dick Kreck reveals the true sense of what it meant to be a Smaldone, not only the corrupt but also the virtuous.
Dick Kreck retired from "The Denver Post" after thirty-eight years as a columnist. He is the author of four other books, including "Murder at the Brown Palace." He lives in Denver, Colorado.
