About this title


Seldom, if ever, has a writer been given access to a former major drug dealer in the Mafia underworld and three generations of family members that followed. After nearly two years of interviews and subsequent research, it has been discovered that a close relative of the family was one of the most powerful figures in the Mafia from the 1940s to the mid 1990s, yet his identity until now has never been revealed. He was the consigliere for all of the American Mafia. The book tells in detail the life and times of a family who escaped the threat of Fascism in Sicily at the turn of the century and the rise of one of the children to a major figure in the Mob. Another sibling returned from a tragic life in an orphanage only to become an adept criminal. He ultimately spent twenty years off and on in prison with the Who's Who of the Mafia, men who became friends and had secret stories to tell. After prison, he became one of the pioneers of Off Off Broadway in NYC and later was responsible for the regeneration of Little Italy in the Lower East Side of NYC. The book details the influence and protection afforded later generations of the family to this day. It offers a unique insight into the real life of people during this 100 year period. Myths about the Mob are disclosed and inaccuracies in the history of the Mafia are corrected. It is a very compelling epic true story. It is a book you will not be able to put down. Look on for further details.

About the Author:

Bio G.T. Harrell G.T. Harrell, born in Durham, NC in 1941 joined the Army in 1962 and was trained at the Army Security Agency’s facility at Fort Devens, MA. He was honorably discharged in Germany three years later and on his way home stopped to visit England where he remained for 11 years and started his long newspaper career that later led him to the Philadelphia Inquirer and New York Daily News. At the newspapers he often saw stories about crime and political corruption spiked. He became keenly aware of Mafia activities in the two American cities, many of which were never reported. Twenty years later he was asked to write For Members Only by relatives of the main subject, Paulie Lefty. He drew upon his newspaper and intelligence experiences to work his way up the ladder of the FBI to find someone who admitted the knowledge of Lefty’s existence and power. The retired agent who was in the Organized Crime Taskforce knew that Harrell would not disclose his name as he had requested. “No one in Intelligence ever gives up secrets.” Using his interrogation skills, he managed to uncover true stories never known by any newspaper writers or Mafia historians. No one could ever discover the true story about what happened to Jimmy Hoffa. Harrell interviewed one of only two men who were there to witness his disposal. No one reported or followed up in newspapers or history books about the largest narcotics heist in American history pulled off by Paulie Lefty. Several top Mafia bosses never before disclosed are detailed in For Members Only. Harrell managed to take his discoveries, including inside stories as told by three generations of Lefty’s family, and convert them into a critically acclaimed, compelling, must read book.
