They`ve appeared as menacing villains in some of Hollywood?s greatest crime thrillers. Now, meet the real godfathers of the Russian Mafia. Thieves By Law reveals shocking tales of murder, torture and extortion from three mobsters-turned-businessmen so cold-blooded they would have Tony Soprano begging for mercy. Covering everything from their strict codes of honour to the meaning behind those tattoos made so famous by Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises, these kingpins expose every last dark detail of the most feared crime syndicate in the world.
