"A Cuban version of The Godfather" Deadline Hollywood
A gripping tale of gangsters. Drugs. Violence. Sex and murder.
By the mid-1980s, the American underworld was a vicious melting pot of powerful criminal tribes. The most feared was the Cuban mob. This organisation of exiles, ruthlessly led by a kingppin named "battle", was so cold-blooded it was known on both sides of the law as "The Corporation".
Drawing on first-hand accounts and deep research, and with the blistering prose that established him as "America's top chronicler of organised crime", T.J. English's The Corporation reveals how a generation of Cuban refugees, racketeers, corrupt cops, hitmen, and their families got caught up in a very American saga of empire building, criminal enterprise and revolution.
Now to be adapted into a film, with Benicio Del Toro to star.

"A first-rate saga of crime and corruption that is further testament to the author's reputation among the nation's most accomplished writers." Library Journal (starred review)
