Son & Daughter Of The Mob

Author: MOB MONTH 2014 - Legacy Of Organized Crime

Tony Napoli is the son of one of the most respected mob bosses of the East Coast.  He followed his father into the family business of fixing boxing matches, racketeering, and illegal gambling.  He went on to carve his own path in the world by becoming a boxer, a  U.S. army soldier, and a casino boss for a major Las Vegas resort, but trouble found him and he fought his way out of the Mob's influence. 

Bella Capo is the daughter of a cruel mob figure who suffered a childhood of beatings and sexual assault.  She formed her own all-girl gang in California, then grew up and married a mobster to please her father.  As she tried to obtain a divorce, she appealed to the notorious Crips gang for help in protecting her from her husband who had issued death threats against her.  Finally escaping her mob and gang related past, she now runs a support group for battered women. 

Hear both Tony and Bella's stories of two different generations of family heritage in Mob culture, their acceptance of the lifestyle, and decision to part with their Mob pasts as they discuss their books, Tony's My Father, My Don and Bella's La Bella Mafia, with co-authors Dennis Griffin and Morgan St. James.
