Acerca de


This is the real story of the beginnings of the Mafia in the United States. It tells for the first time what actually happened as the control of the rackets - extortion, protection, carting and hauling, the cement industry, beer and liquor distributorships - and of the New York waterfront was wrested away from the Irish racketeers by the gang of Italian immigrants who called themselves."The Black Hand" and were under the total domination of Battista Balsamo, the original "Godfather".

He appeared an honorable, reasonable, and just man. He was the vicious head of the Mob.

Filled with rare photographs and documents, peopled with an extraordinary gallery of men and women of the infamous underground, written on ten years of solid research, Under the Clock recounts in painful detail the monumental gangland war that raged for five bloody years,punctuated by poison,knives, and guns, between the Irish "White Hand" and the Italian "Black Hand.". Here is the true story of the resultant Mafia empire - including its emperor, Al Capone - which was ultimately penetrated by the you, dedicated, ambitious New York D.A. - Tom Dewey.

About the Author:

William Balsamo, who has survived almost twenty-five years on the New York waterfront as a member of the International Longshoremen's Association, is the grandnephew of Battista Balsamo, the Mafia's first "boss of bosses" in America. He has been certified as a bonafide New York Mob historian by the New York Daily News, which has published several of his underworld stories.

George Carpozi, Jr., who co-authored Always Kill a Brother with William Balsamo, is the author of over seventy books, including John Lennon: Death of a Dream, and recipient of thirty journalistic awards, including the New York Press Club Golden Typewriter Award. A former reporter on the New York Post.
