When FBI Special Agent Joe Pistone began what was supposed to be a six-month operation infiltrating New York's Bonanno crime family in 1975, he had no idea what was about to happen. Posing as jewel thief Donnie Brasco,” Pistone would spend the next six years undercover in the Family, witnessing-and sometimes participating in-the Mafia's gruesome activities while gathering enough evidence to send over 200 gangsters to jail. Pistone told his story in the 1988 book Donnie Brasco-a New York Times bestseller and later a feature film starring Johnny Depp and Al Pacino. But because of pending trials at the time of publication, many details of the alleged crimes were omitted. Now, in Donnie Brasco: Unfinished Business, Pistone for the first time reveals with great detail the horrific deeds of wiseguys Tony Mirra, Lefty Ruggiero, Sonny Black, and the rest of the cold-blooded Bonanno crew. He puts the operation into historical perspective, detailing the timeline of Mafia trials from 1981 through 2005 that crippled the New York City crime family. He also recounts his experiences after the operation, his time on the Hollywood set with Pacino and Depp, and other undercover operations through present day. A tense, thrilling account of the greatest infiltration ever by a federal agent into the most brutal gang of killers in the world, Donnie Brasco: Unfinished Business is the final chapter in the story of a real American hero.

Joseph D. Pistone is the legendary FBI Special Agent who put his life on the line to infiltrate the U.S. Mafia for six years, resulting in the convictions of over 200 mobsters. He lives in an undisclosed location.From Booklist:
Readers who don't know Donnie Brasco, either the book or the movie, which detailed how young Pistone managed to float in the sewer of Mafia scum, won't get what Unfinished Business is all about. But those who remember rasco will be eager to know the rest of the story, 20 years after Pistone/Brasco recounted how he infiltrated the New York Mafia and how his testimony led to a series of investigations that emasculated the five New York families. The rationalization for this follow-up volume is that, now that the trials have come to fruition, Pistone can tell more about how he worked undercover and how he testified. There's a great deal of filler here (we don't really need to know about what a nice guy Johnny Depp was on the set of the movie Donnie Brasco), but there is also enough deep background about working undercover, enough truly hair-raising reminiscences of close calls, and enough reflection on how far an undercover agent submerges himself before losing a moral compass to make this worthwhile reading--providing you're a fan of the first Donnie Brasco.
