About the Book

Blood & Volume: Inside New York’s Israeli Mafia by Dave Copeland reads like fiction but is absolutely all true. Ron Gonen ran a multi-million dollar drug distribution and contract murder syndicate in Brook1yn, Queens and Manhattan in the 1980s. With associates Ron Efraim and Johnny Attias, the money was coming in fast. Closest in comparison is Henry Hill’s story, which was made into a movie, Goodfellas. Gonen was manipulative and charismatic, travelling between Tel Aviv and New York, doing deals until it all unravelled. When he saw the helicopter over his house he knew it was over. After his arrest, he exchanged information for the witness protection program.
