Synopsis: SINATRA CLUB, THE

Born in Brooklyn, Polisi was a member of one of the New York Mob's feared Five Families, when the Mafia was at the height of its vast wealth and power. Known by his Mob name, Sally Ubatz ("Crazy Sally"), he ran an illegal after-hours gambling den-The Sinatra Club-that was a magic kingdom of crime and a hangout for up-and-coming mobsters like John Gotti and the three wiseguys immortalized in Martin Scorsese's GoodFellas-Henry Hill, Jimmy Burke, and Tommy DeSimone. For Polisi, the nonstop thrills of robbing banks, hijacking trucks, pulling daring heists-and getting away with it all, thanks to cops and other public servants corrupted by Mob money-were fleeting. When he was busted for drug trafficking, and already sickened by the bloodbath that engulfed the Mob as it teetered toward extinction, he flipped and became one of a breed he had loathed all his life: a rat. In this pulse-pounding account of his brazen crimes, wild sexual escapades, and personal tragedies, Polisi tells his story of life inside the New York Mob in a voice straight from the streets. With shocking candor, he draws on a hard-won knowledge of Mob history to paint a never-before-seen picture of the once extensive and secret underworld that, thanks to guys like him, no longer exists.
