In 2009, The Fall of South Bridge became a cult classic for organized crime enthusiasts, as well as citizens of upstate New York, who enjoyed reading about a city that sat very close to home. Five years later, Jimmy Badavino celebrates the anniversary of his first novel and two-time local best seller with a second edition release that offers reviews, pages for readers to take notes, and a crime family 'tree' for fans to follow along with.

An organized crime novel based on actual events, The Fall of South Bridge tells the saga of the powerful Carelli crime family of upstate New York. Molded after the 'ndrangheta, the mafia in Calabria, Italy, the empire had gone undetected by major law enforcement for over sixty years until the late 80's, when DEA chief Rick Mackenzie starts laying the groundwork to dismantle the family and its number one source of income, cocaine. While lead family enforcer Donnie Carelli is pondering retirement, his uncle and newly anointed boss, Rocco Denoboli, is thinking survival, and starts planning a restructuring of the family hierarchy. As the wheels of treachery begin to turn, Donnie's eldest nephew joins Rocco with an ambiguous agenda that could destroy the clan, and perhaps the entire city.
