Frank Sheeran's true story will be perhaps the last great Mafia movie, and the case can now be closed on Jimmy Hoffa, perhaps the greatest murder mystery in American history.
In the course of nearly five years of recorded interviews Frank Sheeran confessed to Charles Brandt that he handled more than twenty-five hits for the mob, and for his friend Hoffa. When Bufalino ordered Sheeran to kill Hoffa, the Irishman did the deed, knowing that if he had refused he would have been killed himself.
Sheeran learned to kill in the US Army, where he saw an astonishing 411 days of active combat duty during World War II. After returning home he became a hustler and hit man, working for legendary crime boss Russell Bufalino. Sheeran's important and fascinating story includes new information on other famous murders including those of Joey Gallo and JFK, and provides rare insight to a chapter in American history involving the Mafia, the Teamsters and the Nixon administration.
