JON D’AMORE was born and raised in northern New Jersey. His father and his cousin were connected to the mob. A talented musician and writer, Jon never had aspirations to fall into the “family business.”
Little did he know that his career as a musician would make him useful to the Mafia, or that he would play a role in one of the largest scams in LAS VEGAS history !!
‘THE BOSS ALWAYS SITS IN THE BACK’ tells the story of Jon and his relationship with his cousin – Godfather Jerry. Not interested in working for one of the five New York Mafia families, Jon carves out his own path and becomes a musician. However, an invitation to spend his twenty-second birthday in Los Vegas with Jerry leads Jon to unsuspectingly become part of a scam that would go down in Vegas history.
Later, when Jon is summoned by mob boss ROCCO CASIANO, his knowledge of recording techniques saves the boss from 40 years of prison by proving the New Jersey State police edited audio tapes. Suddenly Jon is the honorary Godson of The Boss, and christened “The Kid.”
‘THE BOSS ALWAYS SITS IN THE BACK’ – “a novel based on a true story” (!!) – is a humorous, suspenseful retelling of actual events that led to the demise of the mob in New Jersey.
