'Last Don Standing' Dives Into Philly Mob Hit Man Ralph Natale's View Of His Boss' Execution From Prison

The New York Daily News offered an excerpt from Larry McShane and Dan Pearson's book about former Philadelphia Cosa Nostra boss Ralph Natale. 

Philadelphia mob hit man/union fixer Ralph Natale reported directly to the family boss, Angelo Bruno — until Natale landed behind bars on arson and drug charges.

On the night of March 21, 1980, in an act of treachery that sent the Mafia family into a death spiral, consigliere Anthony (Tony Bananas) Caponigro targeted longtime Philly mob head Bruno in a shotgun street hit.

In this excerpt from “Last Don Standing: The Secret Life of Mob Boss Ralph Natale,” Bruno’s right-hand man Natale recounts learning about the execution while locked inside a Florida jail.
