Bill Bonanno

Bill Bonanno was born into a world of respect, tradition and honor. The late son of legendary Mafioso Joseph Bonanno, Bill was a "made" member of the Mafia by the time he was in his early twenties. Bill was one of the few to provide an eyewitness account of his life as a high-ranking captain in the Bonanno crime family.

His book, Bound by Honor (St. Martin’s), not only recounts Bonanno’s tumultuous life, but also is an engrossing chronicle of organized crime. He also co-authored the novel The Good Guys (Grand Central), written with FBI undercover agent Joe Pistone, aka “Donnie Brasco”.
