Episode Description

An account of the life of the Mafia "rat" who was the first syndicate member to testify against the Cosa Nostra and reveal its inner workings. Joseph Valachi explained how the Mafia paid off local police and politicians, and he described the secret Mafia ritual--pricking of the finger, sharing blood, and swearing allegiance to the Family. His testimony forced the FBI to acknowledge, for the first time, that the Mafia did in fact exist.
