Description: A collection of 33 historic books, covering the Mafia and crime. There are 29 hardbacks, 27 with their dust jackets, and the rest are paperbacks. Most of the books are in Near Fine condition, and some are in Very Good condition. This set of Mafia and crime books came from the collection of Philip Manuel, who is a nationally recognized expert in economic crime and multinational fraud investigations. Many of these books have the following stamped on an inside cover “PROPERTY OF THE PHILIP MANUEL RESOURCE GROUP LTD WASHINGTON DC”. His investigative experience was gained in government service where he served as the chief investigator of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations for the U. S. Senate. Mr. Manuel also served as a counter-intelligence agent assigned to the 902nd Intelligence Corps Group in Washington D.C. where he was involved with counterespionage and security investigations for the United States. This handsome collection is easily worth $700.00 to $1000.00.
