A Family Secret is a fast moving novel that takes the reader from the streets of South Philly to the backroom gambling joints of Atlantic City in the early forties to the most Mafia-infested, politically corrupt city in the world Las Vegas. It is the story of two half brothers who each follow different career paths. One becomes a successful Las Vegas casino owner, while the other ends up in the Mafia. The author's use of sharp "street" dialogue makes the characters as real as a "royal flush." A Family Secret is a gritty sometime humorous story that keeps the reader wondering what will happen next. You will meet all kinds of interesting characters in the book. People like Fat Lenny, Little Pussey and Eddie "the hat" Weisberg, who is more like somebody's old grandfather than a "Jewish Gangster." The main character, Goldy, is the essence of every young man's dream. Handsome, rich and as cool as a winter night. And Bobby Cippolini, Goldy's half brother, a careless, cocky young Italian who answers only to the face he sees in the mirror. A Family Secret is a story about people as much as it is about gambling and the mob. It is a beguiling and sometime witty love story that keeps the reader in suspense until the very end. R E V I E W S! on Amazon.com Absolutely outstanding book! I found myself immersed in the characters' lives because of the author's incredible attention to detail. The characters were very well developed and it incorporated aspects of business, the underworld, and family in a realistic portrayal of Mafia life. The plot kept me guessing... I couldn't put it down! Very highly recommended as it is now one of my favorite books! - Stephanie Cohrac (Grand Rapids, MI) This book was one of a kind. A real pageturner!! It really paints a perfect picture on how life really was back then. A must read!! - A big fan, Jason Nissan The story takes you through a realistic portrayal of what it was like to be a wise guy in South Philly. The story flows well and the characters are well developed to give the reader a visualization of the story. The author is currently unknown, but won't be after people get a copy of this book. A must read! - Daniel Halpern (State College, PA) I was pleased to read a story that was true to life.No phony characters or make-belive ":wise guys".The author knew what he was doing A great read.Can see this as a movie. - Florida Mike "Mike the Man" (Florida)

Strictly Adults Only. -Read An Excerpt- "Can I see it again, Daddy?" I asked, sat on the edge of the bed, hands on my knees, braced to sample the view once more and unable to contain my excitement. He opened his towel at the back and stretched it across his midriff, teasing me and enjoying it too by the looks of it. I was so excited I was almost wriggling as he pulled the towel taut to his waist, running it left and right across the outline of his fat cock and watching my face fill with glee. Then slowly he dragged it down himself, revealing his short pubic hair and then the beginnings of his thick shaft, looking wider now and strained downwards. I swallowed nervously as his cock sprang free, hungry for it and salivating as I watched him grip it in his hand whilst the towel dropped to the floor, pumping slowly along his length. I opened my legs and continued where I'd left off, circling my finger over my stiff clit and gazing at my Step-Daddy's big cock. We stayed a little away from each other at first, as if silently confirming that this was as risqué as we were going to get. I'd watch my Daddy's stiff cock as he worked it and he'd stare as I coaxed the juices out of my pussy and that would be that. Pretty soon though, we both realized mutual masturbation would not quench our thirst for each other. It simply wasn't enough. It was like staring at a dessert: After a while, you begin to wonder what it tastes like. My Daddy approached me as I sat on the bed, pumping his cock as he walked purposefully towards me. When he was close enough, I took my hand from my moist groove and wrapped it around his length, feeling the hot flesh in my midst for the first time and marveling at it as I held it close to my face.

The Family Secret is a book about segregation as it affected the last three generations of a white family from the deep South. It was through the Civil Rights Movement of the fifties under Dr. King and others that this very wealthy Christian family was affected along with their children and grandchildren. The book shows how people can believe they are following God in the right way while some of that belief system is seriously flawed and they are blinded thinking that what society believes and accepts as right is very wrong. What is very sad is that these improper teachings were exposed to their children and could have damaged them for life if circumstances had not caused them to leave the deep South and come to the North East. In the North East segregation had been somewhat tempered but it took awhile for this tempering to begin reaching down into the soul of this family. Because their children were exposed to different races in the North East, their hearts were opened up to accepting people for who they truly were. This came through schooling and other good influences which could not have been brought about by the wrong influences of the southern culture that they were born in. The story also shows that as Christians, our belief system can be incorrect even though we are trying hard to follow God to the best of our ability. This is why God left his word to lead us and guide us into all truth. Sadly, instead of presenting Gods truth, many leaders hold the truths that are traditional (man made). These were picked up through family, church, and educational teachings in school where the truths of the gospel have been veiled. Some of these truths were veiled just a little and others a great deal.
