                                        The Town Book Store will be hosting a Meet & Greet for Scott Deitche, true crime author of Garden State
                                        Gangland: The Rise of the Mob in New Jersey on Saturday, February 10th, 2018 from 2:00-4:00 PM.

                                        New Jersey’s organized crime history has been one of the most colorful in the country, serving as the home of some
                                        of the most powerful, as well as below-the-radar, mobsters in the Country. And though overshadowed by the
                                        emphasis on New York City, the mob and New Jersey have, over the years, become synonymous, in both pop
                                        culture and in law enforcement. But for all the press that has been dedicated to the mob and New Jersey, for all the
                                        law enforcement activity against the mob, and for all the pop culture references, there has never truly been an examination of the rise of the mob in New Jersey from a historical perspective. Until now. 

In Garden State Gangland, Scott M. Deitche sets the historical record straight by providing the first overall history of the mob in New Jersey, from the early turn of the century Black Hand gangs to the present, and looks at their influence not only in the Garden State, but across the country as a whole.

Scott M. Deitche is the author of 7 books on organized crime, including Cigar City Mafia: A Complete History of the Tampa UnderworldThe Silent Don: The World of Santo Trafficante Jr. and Cocktail Noir: From Gangsters and Gin Joints to Gumshoes and Gimlets. He has also written dozens of articles on organized crime for local and national magazines and newspapers. Scott has been featured on The Discovery ChannelThe History ChannelA&EC-SPANOxygen and both national and local news and radio shows.
