This is the original mafia story that spawned all the rest—the story of Chicago’s ruthless and tireless mafia.
Power hungry Don, Jimmy Collucci, is out to become the kingpin of Chicago’s “Honored Society.” However, his rise to the top can only be thwarted by one man fueled by revenge set out to destroy it—the “Black Warrior” Jessie Taylor. When ambitions collide, guns are drawn and blood is spilled. This is the original mafia story.
The intensely real characters, the brutal overlords, their faithful lackeys, and their vengeful enemies all collide in acts of loyalty, lust, greed and death. Iceberg Slim's story is now depicted in a major motion picture distributed worldwide. Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp shows Slim's transformation from pimp to the author of seven classic books.
