In Philadelphia during 1962 the crime family was at its peak. They had their own premiere hit man, Salvatore DeSantos and it seemed as if the world was their oyster.
Behind the scenes there were power struggles beginning to take effect and pressure from the New York and Florida families. Don Angelo Bruno worked to control everything as best he could. Then came the call from New York...they were sending a younger member in to be trained by Sal. There was also a massive plan being implemented that called for Sal's unique talents.
With young Vinnie Collasimo in tow Sal lands in Los Angeles and a meeting with the three most powerful Dons in America. Also at the meeting are members of the CIA and FBI. Something is in the wind and when his next target is placed in his lap Sal knows his world will never be the same. Not just his world but the entire world!
This stylized fictional account of one man’s part in that dark day in November in 1963 will have you wondering just how much of an involvement there was on the part of the American Mafia, the CIA and other groups. Was Sal the triggerman that day? Would he follow orders even if he didn’t agree with them? Would the Dons be willing to put up with the well-practiced deceit of the government?
Follow Sal as his story unfolds in this tale of double-crosses and lies. Told in the authentic vernacular of the streets of Philadelphia as well as being peppered with euphemisms from the Italian background they came from. Crime Scene is as authentic as a warm soft pretzel or a hot cheesesteak. It will bring a taste of South Philly into your world and an insight into life in the city, the mob and the early sixties.
