In the 1980s, a multi-million dollar drug distribution and contract murder syndicate led by murderous gangsters Johnny Attais rose to prominence in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. Calling themselves the Israeli Mafia, the group Attias, along with pals Ran Efraim and Ron Gonen, richer than they had ever dreamed, but brought on troubles they never expected. In Blood & Volume: Inside New York's Israeli Mafia, author Dave Copeland gives an exclusive and never-before revealed look into one of the most successful Israeli gangs ever to operate on American soil. While the book gives readers an intimate portrait of Gonen, Efraim, and Attias, the book focuses most deeply on the life and crimes of Ron Gonen. A charismatic rogue, Gonen lived life in the fast lane and eventually spiraled out of control. Blood & Volume is filled with paranoid mobsters, clever scams, deep betrayals, and the struggles Gonen faced as he tried to find redemption and do the right thing by his young daughter and his family. Readers will see firsthand the crimes that could have propelled Gonen and his gang to the top of the New York underworld--if he hadn't agreed to cooperate with federal law enforcement officials.Copeland, Dave is the author of 'Blood and Volume Inside New York's Israeli Mafia', published 2007 under ISBN 9781569803271 and ISBN 1569803277.
