Blackie could hear a ticking—feel wires connected to his body—he could still hear the explosions—like a dream.

David “Blackie” Steece, street-tough New Orleans gangster, called a vindictive sociopath, had survived another shootout. Blackie’s crew was nefarious for high jacking, shake-downs, trading women overseas, ripping off guns from armories or hired-out muscle. His arrival with his Mafia crew always carried a threat of violence. Friends loved him, enemies feared him. To most he was an enigma, best left alone. This latest attempt on his life would cause a lot of pain—for someone. Blackie and his crew would find the shooter—they had snitches everywhere. Blackie took the attempts on his life because he thrived on the vendetta. His presence always instilled a state of intense fear, with dolore.

    I met David ‘Blackie’ Steece and his wife, Barbara, at the Red River Valley Fair in Paris, TX. He had a booth set up and was hawking his first in a trilogy of books ‘Paradox’. His manner was gruff, in your face rude and with my being a black, outspoken native San Franciscan….he was a breath of fresh air for me so I bought his book.

    Blackie’s first book in this trilogy, Paradox, had me hooked. The #1 draw in reading his second (A Question of Honor) and third (Non Magis) books, was the fact this was the real deal about him being a gangster in the Italian Mafia because he had lived it from his birth in Italy to St. Louis and finally New Orleans. These books tell about the many hats he has worn down through the years (and how he kept them on) being the son of the former head of the St. Louis Mafia, ruthless straight up gangster and Consigliere in the New Orleans Mafia, sexual hound for red heads, US Marine, politician, law enforcement officer and believe it or not….a loving and kind father who raised his daughters & son by himself. Intermingled through all these fazes of his life was a lot of mayhem, laughter and friendships that lasted to the end and others that are still thriving. This trilogy of books are a true testament of walking the walk, talking the talk and taking pride in being who you are and doing what life calls you to do.

    If you can read and comprehend what you are reading……then you need to read all three of these books. You will not be disappointed.

    If the first book didn’t grab your attention, the second will keep you up all night, anxious to finish. “Paradox” opened a door to another world that few people know exist, while “A Question of Honor” enlightened the reader to the inner working of a seedy underworld. A place where shocking revelations are exposed and you still can’t help but cheer for the bad (good) guy.

    A Question of Honor is a book I so looked forward to reading after reading Paradox, the first book in The Trilogy. The story delves much deeper into the inner workings of Blackie’s crew and the work they did. Buckle up-much of this book is really hard to read. The reality of what happened is much worse than anything portrayed in any mob movie I have ever seen, and like most Americans-I’ve seen a bunch of them. I know Blackie, I met him a few years ago on a book tour when he came to our town and had dinner at our restaurant. He became a valued friend and we still stay in touch. It was incredibly difficult for me to read his story in such detail and jibe it all with the guy I’ve come to know, but the book is impossible to put down. Why? The story is so fascinating. And in the end, we all have a past-we have all done things in our lives that would give those who think they know us pause-no life is all good or all bad. In Blackie’s world many scary things are rationalized away as necessary to the bigger picture, but one thing never ever is, and that is honor. In Blackie’s world, honor is everything.

    Hello Blackie! I wanted to check in with you. I was the journalist who encountered you at Fort Leonard Wood, MO.
    Loved the books. How are you doing?
    I am working at a restaurant now trying to make ends meet. I gave the books
    to my fiance who will read them too! I said she absolutely had to. I told
    her that I had the great pleasure to sit down and talk with you at length
    when I was stationed at Ft. Leonard Wood.
    How are you? How is life going on your end? I trust your wonderful lady is
    doing well?

    David,
    It was great to meet you and your lovely wife. The book is amazing! I am Indian (Native American if you want to be PC) and we have awful temperaments, but I think you have it matched! That is a compliment. It takes one to be a warrior or indestructible! Also a very big thank you for your service to our country. People like you make it possible for me and my children to live safely.
    Sincerely,
    Dawn Olivas
