The Mafia's Greatest Hits...and the FBI files which tell the true stories behind them.
Donnie Brasco: Under Cover Joe Pistone lives in hiding, he is the Mafia's most wanted man with a $500 000 bounty on his head. He was an FBI undercover specialist who adopted the cover of Donnie Brasco, a jewel thief and gradually built up a variety of mob connections. The most important of these was Sonny Black Napolitano - a capo in the Bonnano crime family. Sonny liked Brasco as he always delivered, after setting up a gambling joint in Miami for Sonny it became a gold mine of information. After six years of living on the edge, Pistone was pulled out of the operation, by then they had enough evidence to send over 2000 mobsters to jail. After refusing FBI protection Sonny Black who bought Brasco to the Mob was assassinated by the Mob as punishment.
Allen Dorfman: The Mafia's Banker Allan Dorfman wasn't Italian, nor was he a member of the Mafia. But he was more important to its success than anyone else because for years he was their banker channelling millions of Union pension contributions to fund their criminal activities. His career of embezzlement money laundering began thanks to his stepfather who gave him control of the Union business. Dorfman became close with Jimmy Hoffa - an offer of the Teamsters union which dominated the US trucking industry. When Hoffa was imprisoned, Dorfman was given control of the Teamsters pension fund; subsequently he learnt the details of the Mob's financial scams and drawing the FBI's attention. They realised if they could catch Dorfman then they could cut the Mafia off from its money. After twenty years of building a case against Dorfman he was found guilty of conspiring to bribe a US senator, however he was murdered just days before his sentencing.
