Blood & Volume: Inside New York's Israeli Mafia

Blood & Volume: Inside New York's Israeli Mafia by Dave CopelandBlood & Volume reads like fiction but is absolutely all true. With the help of a few associates, Ron Gonen ran a multi-million dollar drug distribution and contract murder syndicate in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. Closest in comparison is Henry Hill's story which was made into the movie, Goodfellas. Gonan was manipulative and charismatic, traveling between Tel Aviv and New York, doing deals until it all unraveled. After his arrest, he exchanged information for the witness protection program.

Blood Betrayal by Sheila JohnsonCrazy Kills

"The worst I've ever seen" - that's how Sheriff Cecil Reed described the July 7, 1995 slayings of Carolyn Headrick, 44, and her mother Dora Ann Dalton, 62.
