Jimmy Angel aka (Jimmy Colombo) was the toast of Brooklyn: a former Yankee baseball player turned teen idol whose talent presented him with Gold Records and a membership by New York's reigning mob family. Then he loses it all in the blink of an eye, when his father, crime boss Joseph Colombo, is shot three times and left for dead just inches from where he stands. Colombo's assailants from the rival Gallo family go after Jimmy and nearly finish the job. The FBI hounds him as it tries to contain the growing war between New York's two most powerful mob families. But with a little help from his friends (including a big assist from his friend Pat Boone), Jimmy stays one step ahead of his pursuers...even when that step leads all the way to Japan.
This is the rollicking story of one man's incredible luck and bad fortune, and the remarkable ways Jimmy Angel reinvented himself at every turn.
