A New #1 Bestseller by SC Pike (A true crime series)
The TRUE LIFE story of notorious Mafia hitman for the Gotti & Gambino crime family.

Have you ever wondered what goes through the mind of a hitman? Let alone trying to figure out the influencing factors that led John Alite to live a life of crime. John offers an honest, first-hand, street level, no-holds-bar of his life, starting from a young boy, and then how he moved into organized crime with the Gotti and Gambino crime families. 
SC Pike brings John Alite's story to life in such a way, the reader will feel as if they are walking in his very shoes!
John Alite had too many darkest hours to count, but he's pushed through them all with a spirited perseverance, tenacity of mind, and a strength of purpose. Just like everything else in his life, he's met adversity head on with fierce determination and a resoluteness to come out on top.
Book One:
A college baseball scholarship was his way out of the inner city, but his dreams of going pro were crushed by an arm injury.
John Alite was forced to return home to the only life he knew, where having to live on the streets of New York meant one thing--learning how to survive. 
He was driven.
He was extreme.  
He was feared.
But most of all, he was loyal. 
From a young age, he found himself influenced by the wrong crowd. Enticed by the wealth, power, and prestige of the mafia, he immersed himself in a world that was foreign to most. A society where policies were enforced by instilling fear.
Those at the top were about obtaining and harnessing absolute power, while covertly using their own warped codes of ethics. Honor and loyalty were merely a misnomer. The cold, bitter truth was, he was expendable, and his sworn allegiance was rewarded with betrayal.
Through a life of heartache, betrayal, and loss comes a story of grace, healing, and redemption.

    Too much of the book is spent on Alite’s young years BEFORE the Gambino Family. Boring. Does boxing and baseball lead you to be a rat?!...
