What do you do when the law wants you behind bars and the New York crime families want you buried? That was the life and death dilemma confronting Andrew DiDonato, who began his criminal career at the age of 14 under the watchful eyes of the local mob. By the time he was 17, the infamous Gambino family made DiDonato an associate of the Nicholas Corozzo crew. For the next 14 years, he was a loyal street soldier. But by 1996, DiDonato had run afoul of both the law and his friends, turning him into a hunted man on two fronts. Surviving the Mob is a cautionary tale of the harsh reality of a criminal, inmate, fugitive, and witness who, so far, has lived to tell the tale.
