Shortly after lunch on May 31, 1997, Johnny Papalia-also known as Johnny Pops, Canada's Capone, Godfather or The Enforcer-was gunned down outside his office at 10 Railway Street in Hamilton, Ontario.
For close to forty years, gangsters across Canada had bowed to the fearsome will of Johnny Pops Papalia, a Mafia chieftain who grew up in a working-class ghetto and rose to hold a tenuous grip on organized crime. Journalist Adrian Humphreys followed the life, business and influence of Papalia, and using an intriguing selection of sources-from gangsters and street rogues to police and honest citizens-he recreates that shadowy world and reveals a man who could be as brutal as he was generous. The Enforcer takes the reader inside the Mafia's inner sanctum and reveals the power this organization still wields.
