"A MASTERFUL DIVE INTO MOB HISTORY." - Fox News Chicago
FALL IN LINE, OR FALL IN A GRAVE
After 30 years of research and scouring 5,000 pages of FBI files, The Heights was born. Inspired by true events and racketeers who ruthlessly fought their way into Al Capone's inner circle and expanded organized crime across the American West.
It's hard to believe Sal Liparello has survived long enough to enjoy a midday scotch on his California tomato farm.
The sixty-something crime boss from Chicago Heights helped take out Sicilian gangs, advised Al Capone on some of his biggest moves, and rubbed elbows with the Kennedys, Sinatra, and Marilyn Monroe - all while avoiding the likes of Eliot Ness and J. Edgar Hoover.
But as he surveys the fruits of his labor, Sal also remembers the cost of staying above ground and out of prison.
And all those decisions are about to catch up with him.
