In 1986 when he was incarcerated and refused bail, pending his appeal, his morale remained as furious as ever. This story details how the U.S. Justice Department prosecuted and convicted Mr. Livieratos and his co-defendants. The story indicates that interpretation; politics and selective application of the law can lead to the! conviction of the best intentioned, while protecting the potentially less desirable. His description of the Federal Prison System is in such detail and simplicity that it can be used by inmates as a Federal Prison manual. His characterization of governmental regulatory agencies depicts them as large bureaucratic quagmires, which complicates and destroys the interest of the victimized citizens. Although considered outrageous by some, he provides opinions on how he thinks organized crime and the mafia was a better alternative to the current drug infested street crime. His human instincts will open the public's eyes and hearts for a better society based on love and care for all humans. The author hopes this book will wake up Americans to strive for equal justice for all, regardless of your social status, color, or religion. The Authors main point is to expose his characterization of the hypocrisy of government officials who don't care about the people, but only the power they posses. His colorful sexual encounters and lustful desires add some levity to an otherwise tragic Greek epic.

About the Author:

"Walking On Air" was written by George Livieratos. George prepared this book, his first book, while in prison in 1987. The majority of his writing in "Walking On Air" is based on actual events from his very colorful and controversial life. He was born sometime during World War II, approximately 1937, in Athens, Greece.

He was a leader in Penny Stocks while working with deals on Wall Street and initiated what turned out be a very controversial one-penny per share stock, Worldwide Family Restaurants. Having become a target of most federal law enforcement agencies in the United States, he was convicted in 1987 for a stock swindle involving the Lasor Arm Corporation. However, George has always maintained his innocence. In another case, involving the Federal Flushing Bank, George found himself forced to plead guilty. George, along with his partner Jilly Rizzo, an alleged Frank Sinatra bodyguard, was convicted. Among other things, George has been accused as being an associate of organized crime by a federal court, although George maintains it is the courts opposition to his association with people in power.
