As a hustler and former dirty cop from South Jersey, Ron Previte was one day solicited by the FBI to work undercover in helping them take down the new and unimproved Philly Mafia family in the middle of a violent power struggle. Joe Merlino, aka Skinny Joey, was the young and flashy South Philly wiseguy on the make and John Stanfa was the old school, Sicilian-bred boss chosen by the New York Commission to bring the troubled family in the city of brotherly love back together. 'The Last Gangster' is a very entertaining book well written by the legendary George Anastasia but if you've read The Goodfella Tapes you'll be very familiar with the details of the mob war. Besides Previte, the main difference here is one Ralph Natale, a sleazy and bumbling ex-con who quickly takes the reign of the family after his prison release. The at-times unbelievable and hilariously dark slice of American crime works well in a book, especially when penned by Anastasia.

Good look at the life of Ron Previte and general coverage of the family he was a member of though I felt it was mostly from Ron's point of view. That's not entirely unexpected since the subjects being depicted are not usually publicity hounds. I am not an expert on the particular mafia family discussed but there appears to be the standard aggrandization of the importance of the subject found in similar works. Still, it was well written, coherent and moved along nicely. I did enjoy it and felt it was well worth its price.

Entertaining enough, but not one of the best in the genre. As most people know the mafia has turned from a past reputation of silence (omertà) to an exchange of government informers for leniency. Still, it is a very catchy society, and over the years have read many books on this subject. 3.5 Stars.

I always love to read George Anastasia. He knows how to make the reader feel as if he is an eye-witness to the unfolding events. And this book is right up there with his best.

This work gives you a nice long stare into how things went in the Philly Mob from the Scarfo debacle to Skinny Joey Merlino.

I wish I could give it six stars!

This is a true story book well written
Living in the Philadelphia area, I remember many of the events from this book. I liked getting the inside story on how Ron Previte did what he did. It was a story only someone like George Anastasia, who knows Philadelphia and al the players, could tell.
