…Cosa Nostra “The Next Generation of Mafioso” begins.
A few years before, Tommy and Sal were having a late lunch at Jerry’s in Bath Beach. They came in through the kitchen, and Sal being Sal was nosing around everywhere. When he got to the freezer door, he smiled and peeked in. “I love finding bodies in the freezer. Is he dead?” Sal asked with a grin.
“No, boss,” Jerry said as they stared at the motionless bloody body. He began to shiver and had pissed on himself. He knew he was a dead man, but he was going to keep begging and praying until he was finished. He was going to say or try anything.
Kevin had removed his gag before they opened the door.
Jerry kicked him in the face and said, “Don’t say shit, you fuck.” As he moved to replace the gag.
Tommy motioned for Jerry not to replace the gag and said, “Let’s hear what is so important.”
Knowing this may be his last chance to save himself Kevin begged for forgiveness.
Tommy looked at him and said, “God is who you and I both seek forgiveness from. I am no different than you.”
As Tommy and Sal turned to walk away, Kevin said, “I can break into anything electronic. I can hack the White House, I can hack—”
Tommy and Sal had heard all they needed to hear. They told Jerry to clean him up and bring back to the restaurant the next day.
Kevin crawled to his knees, crying and thanking Tommy and Sal repeatedly. He was about as close to being made as anyone can get. He knew more about Tommy and Sal than any other person on the planet. He was trusted and devoted.
Tommy made large investments in Kevin and reaped benefits beyond his wildest imagination. He was able to move freely through cyberspace—in and out of people’s homes and personal accounts. He had access to federal databases and programs, defense contractors, and financial institutions. Kevin could get him into anything. No one knew the full scope of what Kevin did, but they knew the Tommy and Sal trusted him.
“Next week, the feds are going to issue a failure to appear warrant for Joey Massio. One of Bonanno’s crew robbed an operation belonging to the Gambinos, I figure that could come back to cause trouble so, I have names if you need them. So much lobbyist movement around the US and state capital is unusual for this time. I would like to have the money to hire some bugs—around a hundred for DC and another twenty-five or fifty for Albany. It won’t be any higher than two million dollars, but when I tell them no dirt, no pay, the money pays itself forward.”
“Remind me about these bugs,” Sal said.
“Yes, sir. I only handle about twenty myself, and I expect each of them to handle ten to twenty. This keeps our circles small and lessens the chances of us being infiltrated by spooks and moles from the government. We wash phonies out fast. Government moles will not hack certain places, and they stick out like sore thumbs. My folks are extremely careful nerds. They don’t ask questions. They do the job and want good pay,” Kevin said.
Sal thought, They check each other out by testing their willingness to hack without discrimination. Kind of like ‘Our Thing’. You can only go so far before you need to whack someone to go further. This is easily where cops and rats wash out. Unfortunately, there is probably already a bunch of damage at this point. “Hell, I knew I liked these people for some reason. I think we do it Tommy.”
“I agree, Sal. Make all the necessary arrangements with Kevin,” Tommy said. “What else?”
“There is quite a bit of message traffic from DC to New York with the FBI, DEA, and ATF,” Kevin uncomfortably said.
Mr. Luciano sat forward in his chair, sipped his water, and said, “Tell me the name and subject of this traffic.”
