Those two you reference are THE INVADER and THE TAKEOVER. They
aren't really Mafia oriented - Fawcett was just doing a real stretch job.
Buy them next time you find them. Around here (southern California), they
are underpriced: between 50 cents and $1.50

Richard Sale is another great writer who touches upon a genre of
mine: The Hollywood fixer. But this is a whole new subject.

The only thing I recall about Wormser (and I may have this confused
with Talmadge Powell - sorry!) is a collection of short stories from the
Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazines. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the
other works (be they by Powell or Wormser).
