|The "lab," where Christian writes, muses, maybe smokes a cigar....|
Christian Cipollini, the award-winning author of three true-crime books, has broken new ground with his latest effort, which revisits a somewhat familiar topic: Salvatore Lucania -- that's Charlie "Lucky" Luciano to you.
Cipollini is a standout in the Mafia-based true-crime genre. In addition to authoring three books -- Lucky Luciano: Mysterious Tales of a Gangland Legend, Murder Inc. and Diary of a Motor City Hit Man -- he's appeared on several high-profile television shows, including the Biography Channel's Gangsters: America's Most Evil and the History Channel's United Stuff of America (in addition to also serving as a consultant/producer for National Geographic Channel’s critically acclaimed series DRUGS, INC.)
Most recently, he appeared at the Las Vegas Mob Museum to discuss the Mafia's pre-WWII hit squad known as Murder Incorporated (the topic of his most-recent book for the Strategic Media label). He's also a Real Crime Magazine contributor. I know I am forgetting something....
