Broadway Books lands mob book

Publisher buys DeMeo memoir in mid-six figure deal

Broadway Books executive editor Charlie Conrad and editorial director Gerry Howard have landed the memoir of Albert DeMeo, son of mob hitman Roy DeMeo, in a preemptive mid-six figure deal.

Roy DeMeo, who confessed to more than 100 killings, operated out of the Flatlands/Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn and was indicted with Gambino crime family figure Paul Castellano on racketeering charges in 1982. DeMeo’s body was later found in the trunk of his Cadillac.

Alan Nevins of AMG/Renaissance repped DeMeo in the deal, the second mob book contract Nevins and partner Joel Gotler have inked in a month, following a $1 million Warner Books deal for an as-yet-untitled book by the children of Henry Hill.
