  • Short Description
This book is the product of two journalists’ dangerous investigation, a deep look into the heart of the North American Mafia. It lifts the veil on the life — and on the end — of some of the most influential actors of organized crime of recent years: Vito Rizzuto and Andrew Scoppa.

A groundbreaking, exclusive inside look at the North American Mafia and the Rizzuto family

For the first time in Canadian history, a high-ranking Mafioso agreed to break the code of omertà by talking to journalists. From October 2014 to October 2019, Félix Séguin and Eric Thibault held multiple secret meetings with Andrew Scoppa, getting an exclusive inside look at the inner workings of the North American Mafia. This book is the culmination of their perilous investigation. It sheds light on the life — and death — of one of the most influential organized crime figures in recent years.

At exactly 2 p.m., there was a knock at the door. It was him: the source every journalist dreamed of having. The short man was armed and placed his gun on the table I’d moved between the bed and a chair.

“Are you impressed?” he asked with a broad grin.

“Yes. Very much.”

Before me was Andrew Scoppa: close confidant of the late godfather Vito Rizzuto, international heroin trafficker and cold-blooded killer.

Sales and Market Bullets

  • Séguin and Thibault had unique access to the North American Mafia: over the course of five years they secretly met with Andrew Scoppa, confidant to the late godfather Vito Rizzuto. Séguin notes, “Normally, the Mafiosi who converse with journalists are repentant. They have been collaborators of justice. Here, Andrew Scoppa was a working mobster who delivered confessions while at the height of his influence.”

  • Mafia stories are among the most enduring in true crime, and this investigative work will appeal to readers of provocative narrative non-fiction.

  • Perfect for listeners of the podcast Mafia (audioBoom) and readers of Bad Blood or Mafia Inc.

  • Séguin and Thibault are two of the biggest true crime reporters in Montreal. This is their third book together.

  • 40,000 copies sold in French in the first four months of publication.


  • Fans of CTV’s Bad Bloods

  • Fans of The Godmother (ECW Press, 2019) and true crime stories with international angles

  • True crime podcast listeners like My Favorite Murder, Serial, Teacher’s Pet, Someone Knows Something, Dr. Death, Casefile, Criminal, Felonious Florida, Wine & Crime, Crime Junkie, etc.

Born in Gaspésie, Eric Thibault has covered police and organized crime in Quebec since 1993. He has written for the Journal de Montréal since 2011.

Félix Séguin has covered multiple major national and international news stories since the early 2000s. He specializes in police investigations and organized crime. Inside the Montreal Mafia is the third collaboration between Eric Thibault and Félix Séguin, following Gallant: Confessions d’un tueur à gages and Le livre noir des Hells Angels. Séguin and Thibault are both members of the Québecor Investigative Bureau.

“A fresh, fascinating, deep look at the Montreal Mafia, told by two veteran journalists with a firm grip on their subject matter and a knack for storytelling.” — Peter Edwards, co-author of The Wolfpack: The Millennial Mobsters Who Brought Chaos and the Cartels to the Canadian Underworld (with Luis Horacio Nájera)
