Biography:

Tony Nastasi is different from any mobster-turned-informant you've ever read about. He didn't get busted by the feds and then forced into cooperating. He spent his whole life in various business associations with New York Mafia families, then, volunteered to help the FBI because he became disgusted by what he saw. He owned high-priced escort services in New York and Las Vegas, very similar to the Emperor's Club that is now in the news. His work for the FBI helped to thwart a mob takeover of the entire escort service industry. Along the way, he butted heads with mob hit-men, including Vinnie the Aspirin, known for using a power drill to torture his victims.

Still, he declined to enter the Witness Protection program, preferring to call his own shots with no restrictions imposed by the feds.

Nastasi never granted an interview to anyone until he approached George Knapp a few months ago and started telling the story of his incredible life, characters, mob bosses, celebrities, hookers, killers, and piles of money.
