BACKSTORY – 1986 – The Mafia is being stripped to the bone. All their heavy hitters are facing long term incarceration. The RICO statute has greatly reduced the ranks of Cosa Nostra. The CIA is also facing severe problems of its own. Budget cuts have hampered the agency’s ability to eliminate domestic threats. A DEAL is stuck between the CIA and the five families: The government will only prosecute “High Profile” cases in exchange for the Mafia’s most efficient assassination services. The public can have no knowledge of this arrangement.
Killing Girl #1 arrives August 8th with a cover price of $2.99.
