Written in English

Kenny "Kenji" Gallo was a smart kid. Before he could legally drink he was smuggling cocaine with Pablo Escobar's Medillin Cartel and running a gang of violent thugs with an iron fist.When Gallo graduated to producing porn and pimping a stable of the industry's most desirable stars, he discovered the Mob - and the Mob discovered him. Learning from old-time mafiosi, Gallo refined his gangster style and expanded his criminal repertoire, becoming a force to be reckoned with on either side of the law. As an undercover FBI operative, Gallo nearly lost his life during a sting operation against the Colombo Mafia Family, the most violent crime family in New York City.In his memoir, Gallo captures the modern American underworld in all its tawdry spectacle, from 1980s cocaine cowboys to the modern Mob and its Tony Soprano wannabes, to the dirty secrets of the porn industry. A gutsy, unforgiving, unapologetic, street-hardened, brutal yet redemptive view of life in the dark and twisted netherworld, 'Breakshot' delivers a riveting and at times shocking read.
