Hitman Mazza lured by Mob boss wife

Former hitman Larry Mazza got himself caught up in a life of crime after an affair with the wife of mobster Gregory 'Grim Reaper' Scarpa. The boss even knew about it. As a teenager, Mazza met the much older Linda Scarpa while serving as her supermarket delivery boy. The pair hit it off but there was one small issue - she was married to mobster Scarpa, who then worked for Colombo boss Carmine Persico. The affair continued with the revelation coming after the mob-wife insisted Larry and her husband meet so he could find him work. After that meeting Mazza's life would never be the same. He gradually rose through the ranks of the mafia knowing his affair with his boss's wife could get him killed.
The affair began to weigh on the mobster so he backed away. The Grim Reaper himself reached out to him. "Greg called me and said 'where have you been, I've been worried about you, Linda's been worried about you'. Mazza became paranoid fearing he would soon be killed. He thought a meeting with the Grim Reaper would be his last.

"We get to his office and he says: 'I know about you and Linda'." The notorious mob boss ended up being fine with it. He had one condition - if anyone outside of the trio were to learn of the affair then the pair would both be killed. "From that moment on he and I had this bond, and it grew."
