The Irishman : Frank Sheeran's True Crime Story

The Irishman : Frank Sheeran's True Crime Story

Description

Frank Sheeran, known as the Irishman, waited his entire life to tell his story, or at least his version of his story. The world knew him as a union official, a long-time member of the Teamsters Union; he was a member of Jimmy Hoffa's inner circle at the top of the national union. He had run-ins with the law in this position. He was charged with the murder of a rebel union member in a riot that occurred outside the Teamster's Local Philadelphia Union Hall, but the charges were later dropped. He went to prison in the 80s after being caught on a wire instructing once of his crew to break someone's legs and was named in Rudy Giuliani's Mafia Commission Trial as an unindicted co-conspirator and one of only two non-Italian members of the Mafia Commission.

As an old man suffering from cancer that would soon kill him, Frank Sheeran shared his story with his attorney. He told him of the things that were already known, but he shared much, much more. This book explores Frank Sheeran's confessions as a lifelong criminal with ties to some of the biggest crimes of the 20th century.

Inside this book, you will find:

A detailed account of Frank Sheeran's time in the army during the second world war, where he was in combat for an astounding four hundred and eleven days, with a focus on the war crimes he has admitted to;

A look into Sheeran's post-war slides into a life of crime, finding himself working for the Mafia before he even knew what the Mafia was;

Information on his time as a hitman for the Mafia and how that led him to work for Jimmy Hoffa as muscle and hitman for the powerful Teamster Boss;

Frank Sheeran's accounts of his connections to the Bay of Pigs Invasion and the Assassination of JFK; and

His confession to the murders of Crazy Joe Gallo and of his friend, Jimmy Hoffa.
