Description - Goodfellas by Nicholas Pileggi
'At the age of twelve my ambition was to become a gangster. To be a wiseguy was better than being President of the United States. To be a wiseguy was to own the world.' GoodFellas is Henry Hill's own story, telling in fascinating, brutal detail the day-to-day life of a working mobster - violence, wild spending sprees, his wife, his mistress, his code of honour. Henry Hill knows where a lot of bodies are buried, and he turned into a Federal witness to save his own life. The mob is still hunting him for what he revealed: hundreds of crimes including arson, extortion, hijacking and the six-million dollar Lufthansa heist, the most successful cash robbery in US history which led to ten murders.
