Only a family knows the unvarnished truth about someone. Everyday, face-to-face interactions can reveal character more effectively than anything else. Al Capone's brother, Ralph Capone, knew this – and that's why he begged his granddaughter Deirdre Marie Capone not to publish the Capone family secrets until she was the last living member of the family. Uncle Al Capone, The Untold Story from Inside His Family is the result, revealing for the first time many startling facts about one of the most famous gangsters of the twentieth century. In one hard-hitting chapter after another, Capone examines her great-uncle's involvement in the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, the real reason he went to Alcatraz, ethnic prejudice in the early twentieth century, and much more. She offers compelling evidence that Al Capone was specifically targeted for prosecution by law enforcement agencies with the collaboration of the media, which made gross exaggerations of her uncle's exploits and fueled a phenomenon of half-truths and utter falsehoods. From the family's roots in Angri, Italy to the author's ongoing investigations today, this debut offers a comprehensive and moving portrait of an iconic American family and one woman's efforts to make peace with the past. http://www.unclealcapone.com
Pam Stack, host of Authors on the Air, is pleased to welcome back to the studio, Chuck Greaves. Based on a trove of newly discovered documents, Tom & Lucky (and George & Cokey Flo) tells the true story of a singular trial in American history: an epic clash between a crime-busting district attorney and an all-powerful mob boss who, in the crucible of a Manhattan courtroom, battle for the heart and soul of a dispirited nation. Blending elements of political thriller, courtroom drama, and hard-boiled pulp, author C. Joseph Greaves introduces readers to the likes of Al Capone, Dutch Schultz, Meyer Lansky, and Bugsy Siegel while taking readers behind the scenes of a corrupt criminal justice system in which sinners may be saints and heroes may prove to be the biggest villains of all. Chuck Greaves spent 25 years as an L.A. trial lawyer before turning his attention to fiction. His debut novel HUSH MONEY (Minotaur), a legal mystery, won the SouthWest Writers' International Writing Contest, received starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal, and was a Critics' Pick from Kirkus Reviews. HUSH MONEY has been named a finalist for numerous national awards and honors, including the Rocky Award (Left-Coast Crime), the Reviewers' Choice Award (RT Book Reviews), the Shamus Award (P.I. Writers of America) and the Audie Award for Best Mystery audiobook of 2012 (Audio Publishers Association.)

The Total Tutor will interview Deirdre Capone. “I am a Capone.” So begins Deirdre Marie Capone’s recently published account of her life, family, and relationship with one of America’s most notorious gangsters. In the past, this admission of identity did not come easy to Deirdre, who was discriminated against simply because of her last name. Now she writes to share little-known stories about the family who raised her and kept Chicago stocked with liquor during the Prohibition. Over time, the Capone family has become ensconced by myth and legend, but Deirdre alone knows truly intimate details. As the only surviving Capone member who has first-hand accounts of interactions with her notorious family members, she seeks to clear up rumors and allegations that have accumulated over the past eighty years. The world knows Al Capone as a criminal that flaunted his lawbreaking, but only Deirdre knows how compassionate and loving her “Uncle Al” could be. Next, The Total Tutor will interview Mia Toschi: Award -Winning TV Reporter, Contributing Writer and Photographer for “Surviving Sandy“ WHAT: Hurricane Sandy was a devastating and deadly hurricane that left tens of thousands of people homeless. 15 months later, and many uninsured and under insured survivors have still not been able to rebuild. TV Reporter Mia Toschi is a Contributing Writer and Photographer of “Surviving Sandy” – a 300-page book detailing the historic storm while also highlighting the heroes and rebuilding. 100% of the proceeds are being donated to charities. So far – five charities have been received significant donations. Mia Toschi is now reaching out to corporations so libraries and schools can each receive this piece of history and to empower them that they are survivors. To learn more about her efforts and how you can get involved, check out her amazing book, Surviving Sandy.
