Growing up in Tarpon Springs, Florida - the seaside headquarters of the Greek mafia - Kevin Cunningham fell in love with Greek culture and hoped to become part of it. But when he was seventeen his world turned upside-down: from his deathbed, the man he'd always called dad told him he was the illegitimate son of the local crime boss. When Kevin's attempts to gain recognition from his real father failed, he entered into a life of crime, adopting the family name and quickly escalating from swindling tourists to moving cocaine, gun running and racketeering. Having squared off against the FBI and the DEA, and with most of his crew dead, Kevin was locked up on two consecutive life terms. But that's only the beginning of the story - from helping authorities capture major criminals, outwitting the system, and ultimately finding redemption, Kevin's story will leave true crime buffs shaking their heads.
