Until Nov. 14, 1957, the American public didn’t believe the Mafia existed. J. Edgar Hoover had told them just that. But a summit of the nation’s most powerful crime bosses in a small upstate New York town changed that. Tension was already high with the murderous Vito Genovese, who aimed to take over The Commission, eyeing the heads of New York’s Five Families. Then the cops massed on the road. A hundred mafiosi fled by car or on foot through the fields, or hunkered down to wait the law out. The Apalachin Meeting made headlines and history. Gil Reavill tells what happened in the room that day in “Mafia Summit: J. Edgar Hoover, The Kennedy Brothers, and the Meeting that Unmasked the Mob.”
