Gotham on the Brink
Rising Crime Lord
Carmine Falcone is an extremely wealthy investor who well known for his charitable donations (especially to the Police Officers pension fund) and high society parties.
He is very widely believed to be consolidating control over the city’s alcohol smugglers; bringing new methods, legal favors, and higher profits to all. It is also widely believed that he views all police officers and elected officials with contempt for following the rules.
Rumors suggest that he is also a member of a shadowy organization called the Mafia but this is widely disparaged by the police.
