Part 3 of this series takes up in the late 1970s, the Sicilian mafia was smuggling millions of dollars worth of heroin into the US every year. Ultimately, a battle would rage on the streets of the US between a new breed of ruthless mafioso and a new kind of policeman, prepared to risk everything to infiltrate the mafia. With the help of FBI agents like Joe Pistone (aka Donnie Brasco) and Carmine Russo, the Mafia’s drug enterprise would be exposed and eventually dismantled.
