In honor of Valentine’s Day, I take Small Town Tales in a little bit of a different direction in this episode to explore the life of Frank Calabrese, Jr right here in Las Vegas, NV.
Fascinated with organized crime lords, our culture often romanticizes these historical figures and events, such as Al Capone and Valentine’s Day through Hollywood theater. But what is it really like inside the family? Frank Calabrese, Jr. discusses the opposition, risks, and need in going against his father, and the Chicago Outfit to protect himself and his family.
New York Times Best-Selling Author and Organized Crime Insider and Expert Frank Calabrese, Jr. is the son of "Frankie Breeze", a “made” man who ran major loansharking and illegal gambling operations for the Chicago Outfit. Frank Jr., wrote to the FBI from prison and volunteered to wear a wire on his father and uncle, which led the investigation charge to the Family Secrets trial. Operation Family Secrets was a milestone in the FBI's battle against organized crime in Chicago. It is said to have had a significant effect on the operations of the Chicago Outfit.
About Frank Calabrese, Jr.
Frank Calabrese, Jr. is an organized crime insider and expert and a New York Times best-selling author of Operation Family Secrets: How a Mobster's Son and the FBI Brought Down Chicago's Murderous Crime Family. From growing up in the mob to initiating a federal investigation into his father’s dealings while in prison, Calabrese, Jr. knows more than his share about redemption, courage, responsibility, morality, loyalty, criminality, and commerce. Calabrese, Jr. had ties to the mob through his father, Frank “Frankie C.” Calabrese, Sr., a madman and caporegime who ran major loan sharking and illegal gambling operations for the Chicago Outfit.
