"Crammed with the kind of characters and detail that make pages turn and moviemakers salivate, self-described 'mobster, drug lord, and porn kingpin' Gallo’s story of life as a criminal and mafia associate is tantalizing material. ... Honest, critical, occasionally remorseful and always entrancing, this criminal memoir will keep readers on the edge of their seats."

Welcome to the homepage of Breakshot: A Life in the 21st Century American Mafia, the tell-all memoir of Kenny "Kenji" Gallo, the most famous Asian-American gangster in modern history. Released on August 1, 2009 by Phoenix Books, Breakshot tells the stranger-than-fiction story of how a Japanese-American private school kid from ritzy Orange County, California, became a jet-setting playboy gangster who made millions with Pablo Escobar’s Medellín Cartel, Los Angeles’ Milano Mafia Family, and New York’s Lucchese and Colombo Mafia Families -- before turning his life around by signing on with the FBI as undercover operative against organized crime.
