Where is the $6 million that was stolen during the infamous Lufthansa Airlines heist? For 37 years, the FBI has been unable to find the cash and jewels taken from the Lufthansa cargo vault at JFK airport. Now, for the first time, a Mafia insider reveals the bizarre story of what happened to the loot. In this 52-page book, Dominick Cicale, a former high-ranking member of the Bonanno crime family, discloses never-before-told details about the Lufthansa robbery, which was immortalized in the movie Goodfellas. The book includes portions of an unpublished interview with mob associate Henry Hill, whose story inspired Goodfellas and the book, Wiseguy. Cicale, a mob turncoat, also shares candid insights about the heist's mastermind Jimmy Burke and mob figures John Gotti, Vinny Gorgeous Basciano, and John Gotti Jr. The short-format book is co-authored by Cicale and award-winning journalist Robert Sberna.
