MAFIA SON - The Scarpa Mob Family, The FBI, And A Story of Betrayal
A sensational, epic true story of a modern Mafia dynasty, by an author with incredible inside access to both the Mob and the FBI.
The Scarpas were a Mafia dynasty led by Greg Scarpa Sr., a man addicted to murder. His son, Gregory Jr., a promising athlete, worshipped his ruthless father, and was slowly drawn into his dark world. What only father and son knew was that for thirty years Scarpa Sr. was an FBI informant. For decades, his connection to the FBI granted him a virtual license to kill. But when facing arrest in the late 1980's, Scarpa asked his son to leave his wife and children, and take the rap for his father.
After years in prison, in 1995, Gregory Jr, imprisoned alongside Ramzi Yousef, architect of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, agreed to extract information from Yousef in exchange for leniency, furnishing the FBI with detailed intelligence on what would result in 9/11. Incredibly, Greg's desperate warnings were unheeded, and he was sentenced to forty-years-to-life at the notorious ADMAX. There he would supply the FBI with intelligence on Oklahoma City bomber and fellow prisoner, Terry Nichols. Again his contribution was ignored, and Gregory Jr. remains at ADMAX, where he believes he will one day be murdered.
Told through Sandra Harmonís incredible, intimate access to the bookís key characters, access that eventually got her subpoenaed in the highly publicized Lindley DeVecchio trial, MAFIA SON is an unforgettable true story of violence, wealth and sex, set in a world where a manís word is both everything and nothing.
Sandra Harmon is the author of several best selling books, including Elvis and Me, which she coauthored with Priscilla Presley.
