Description

A reporter's fascinating behind-the-scenes look at American women in the Mafia. It's easy to pick the mob moll out of a crowd: she's brazenly platinum, sports a 10-carat diamond, and doesn't have a clue what her husband does for a living. Or so pop culture would have us believe. the truth is infinitely more complex. In this eye-opening expose of the women at the deadly heart of the Mafia, reporter Claire Longrigg uncovers a fascinating subculture of American females - and their strategies for survival. Some are irresistibly attracted to dangerous men - like Camille Serpico, who married her first husband's killer, and Lana Zanocchio, daughter of the reputed Bonanno family consigliere, who calls her terrifying father a 'real man'. Others, like Brenda Colletti, take part in criminal activities alongside their men, concealing weapons and plotting mob hits. And there are those who rebel, like Betty tocco: to save her son from a life of crime, she sent her mob boss husband to jail for two hundred years. Based on in-depth interviews with the mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, and girlfriends of notorious mobsters, No Questions Asked offers an unprecedented glimpse into a fiercely private and frightening world.
