About the Book

At a time when New York City’s booming waterfront industry was ruled by lawless criminals, one gangster towered above the rest and secretly controlled the docks for over thirty years. Dock Boss: Eddie McGrath and the West Side Waterfrontexplores the rise of Eddie McGrath from a Depression Era thug to the preeminent racketeer on Manhattan’s lucrative waterfront.
McGrath’s life takes readers on a journey through the tail-end of Prohibition, the sordid years of violent gang rule on the bustling waterfront, and finally the decline of the dock mobsters following a period of longshoremen rebellion in the 1950s.
This is the real-life story of the bloodshed that long haunted the ports of New York City.
