Story topic this week…
To Kill the Irishman – Learn the definitive story of Danny Greene, a fiercely proud Irish- American racketeer who took on La Cosa Nostra, sparking events that led to the fall of several Mafia families. Rick Porrello tells Danny Greene’s story of how he rose to power in the criminal underworld, waged war on the Mafia for control of the city, and what his death meant for the Mafia in the city of Cleveland.

Rick Porrello Bio
Rick Porrello is a police chief, drummer, and author of three books including To Kill the Irishman – the War that Crippled the Mafia which is now a major motion picture starring Ray Stevenson and Vincent D’Onofrio, with Val Kilmer and Christopher Walken, and was also the basis for a documentary. His current title, Superthief – A Master Burglar, the Mafia, and the Biggest Bank Heist in U.S. History was the primary source for a documentary and is in development for a motion picture.

Rick is executive or consulting producer on several film projects. He is a popular presenter of Cleveland mob history, and his writing, publishing and book-to-film experiences. In addition to his career in law enforcement and interest in writing, Rick is an accomplished jazz drummer who spent two and a half years traveling internationally with the great Sammy Davis Jr.
