Summary:
Put your ear to the keyhole and listen to conversations that brought major crime figures to their knees. Former undercover agents describe planting listening devices and infiltrating and cutting through the Mob's hierarchy. In the early 1980s, one of the biggest heroin rings in the world was brought to its knees - not with violence, or murder, but with a small bundle of wires and electronic listening devices. The Pizza Connection was one of the most important and far-reaching wiretapping cases ever, and ushered in a golden age in law enforcement's fight against the mafia. In the coming years, the FBI would use wiretapping to go after all of the "Five Families" in New York by bugging the leaders' homes, their meeting places and even the cars they rode in. The evidence those wires uncovered helped the FBI take down the biggest mafia leaders in New York.
