Join us on an enthralling journey back to the late 19th/early 20th century, as we unravel the true history of a villainous group known as The Black Hand Society.

In part on of this series Joey guides us as we delve deep into how this notorious society was brought to its knees by a fearless Postal Inspector, John Frank Oldfield.

Drawing from the well-researched book "Inspector Oldfield and The Black Hand Society" by William Oldfield and Victoria Bruce, we explore how Oldfield's great-grandson pieced together a fascinating narrative from family keepsakes.

In this episode, we shine a light on the black-and-white days of postal inspectors, who were the unsung heroes of their time. We'll understand the high stakes of being a postmaster back in the day and how Frank Oldfield's upbringing and personal convictions set the stage for his eventual clash with the Black Hand.

We also dive into the background of our second protagonist, the adept and chameleonic detective Francis Dimaio, also known as The Raven, who infiltrated the mafia with his cunning and resourcefulness.
