Although most of these men were meticulously low profile, Supcrmob pulls the lid off of their half-century infiltration into American business, politics, and society. At the heart of it all was the Chicago Outfit's fair-haired boy, Sidney Korshak, a.k.a. "The Fixer," who from the 1940s until his death in 1996 was not only the most powerful lawyer in the world, according to the FBI, but also the enigmatic, almost vaporous player behind sorne of the shacliest deals of the twentieth century. \Vith the mob 's vise grip over American labor, it was Korshak whom they designated to manage their investments: from the Outfit's hitherto undisclosed California land grabs (the real "Chinatown" story) to Hollywood quid pro quos, from casino monopolies to underhanded hotel deals.
