Praise

The Quiet Don is a triumph. Matt Birkbeck provides a stunning work of investigative journalism that is memorable and alive and unveils the incredible life and legacy of one of the mobs most important powerbrokers.”—Nicholas Pileggi, author of Wiseguy and the screenplays for Goodfellas and Casino

“This fast-paced, captivating probe into the life of Russell Bufalino fills a major gap in the annals of organized crime and shows us why his story continues to matter so much today. This is sophisticated investigative reporting, told with a novelist’s storytelling flare.” —Paul Moses, professor of journalism at Brooklyn College and author of The Saint and the Sultan

The Quiet Don is a must-read, an important addition to the history of organized crime.” —G. Robert Blakey, a former Notre Dame law professor, a draftsmen of the RICO Act, chief counsel to the House Select Committee on Assassinations, and a prosecutor in the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section of the Department of Justice under Robert F. Kennedy.

“The fascinating tale of Russell Buffalino, a brainy mobster who was in a Mafia league of his own.” —Tom Robbins, professor at the CUNY school of journalism and former investigative reporter at the New York Daily News and Village Voice.
