The Outfit Book Summary

This is the never-before-told story of the great Chicago crime family called The Outfit, the secretive organized crime cartel that began its reign in prohibition-era Chicago before becoming the real puppet master of Hollywood, Las Vegas, and Washington D.C. Moving with purpose and panache, The Outfit blended effortlessly with upperworld corporate leaders, Hollywood moguls, and national political icons. It was only after a fifty-year run that their world started to crumble in the 1970s. With extensive research including recently released FBI files, first-ever access to the voluminous working papers of the Kefauver Committee, original interviews with Outfit associates and members of the Fourth Estate, and first-time access to the journals of Outfit chieftain Murray Humphreys' long-in-hiding widow, Russo uncovers sixty years of corruption and influence, and examines the disconcerting shadow history of the United States.
