David Giordano-Steece’s Paradox

Read BOOK ONE in the exciting Paradox trilogy!

True-life incidents make for exciting action in David Giordano-Steece’s blistering story based on his own extraordinary experiences with the criminal mind, sexual exploitation, and corrupt politics. Paradox is filled with colorful, larger-than-life characters and interspersed with real-life documents from Giordano-Steece’s criminal rap sheet, ownership of gambling casinos, and his late conversion to law enforcement. Like the two faces of the Roman God Janus, David Giordano-Steece’s Paradox portrays Blackie—Giordano-Steece’s street name—as a connected gangster; a sociopath…nefarious, vindictive and egomaniacal. Then, conversely, it reveals him to be a true crime detective and a warm, humorous family guy; a doting father who adores his “angel” daughters. Read an Excerpt!

David Giordano-Steece’s Question of Honor

Read BOOK TWO in David Steece’s Paradox trilogy!

Blackie could hear a ticking—feel wires connected to his body—he could still hear the explosions—like a dream. David “Blackie” Giordano-Steece, a street-tough New Orleans gangster, called a vindictive sociopath, had survived another attempt on his life. Blackie’s crew was nefarious for hijacking, 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 perpetrator—they had snitches everywhere. Blackie reacted to  attempts on his life with a furious vendetta. His presence always instilled a state of intense fear, with dolore. Read an excerpt from Question of Honor here.

Read the FINAL BOOK in David Giordano-Steece’s Paradox Trilogy!

In Paradox, the first volume in David Giordano-Steece’s three-part autobiography, we are introduced to the real life gangster, “Blackie.” The author peeled back the layers of corruption to reveal a world of criminality, lust and violence at the heart of the Louisiana political establishment. In A Question of Honor, Giordano-Steece leads his readers deeper into the heart of the underworld, revealing the innermost thoughts and workings of the Sicilian Mafia in the Deep South. Now, in Non Magis, Giordano-Steece offers the final details in a life of contradictions where Blackie is transformed from the gangster running the muscle for organized crime to a police officer charged with the duty of upholding the law he once so easily lived outside.

Blackie: Death of a Gangster

This is the ‘Tell All’ book that Everyone’s been waiting for!  Did Blackie really leave the Life? If you’re reading this book, you have probably read at least one of David’s books in the Trilogy: Paradox,  A Question of Honor, or Non-Magis, maybe even Minestrone Soup for the Gangsters Soul.  Did you really read them ???  When you read his other books, did you notice the subliminal messages? Did you read what Retired Chief Criminal Deputy Sheriff, Bob Ragsdales wrote on page two of Non-Magis about his thirty year pursuit of Blackie?  If you didn’t miss the clues, you know that this is the book about the guy you probably knew subconsciously, and either did not connect the dots or just did not want to…. If you have ever heard Blackie at a speaking engagement, you’ve heard these words many times, “You are either born Sicilian or you’re not…You can’t be invented Sicilian like on television by burning a prayer card in your hand”.  Nor can you give up your Sicilianship or leave the Family or the Life on a whim.  There’s no membership card to turn back in.  Blackie has never been accused of holding back his thoughts or opinions and he doesn’t do it here either. Most of you who have read the books like ‘Blackie’. Many of you consider him a friend. You stay in touch, maybe have been dinner guests, or just enjoyed hanging out. That ‘Blackie’? That’s not the same guy in the books, is it? The hard ass that’s unbending?  What is he, a sociopath?  No, not your ‘Blackie’.  He’s a good guy. Like all the other books, you’ll have to decide for yourself.  It’s your call….Can a leopard really change his spots?

Watch the story unfold

Born the son of an alleged high-ranking Mafia Don, Antony Giordano Jr. was relocated to be raised by another alleged Mafia Family in the City of New Orleans, Louisiana. Ironically the American Mafia did not start in New York City, not Detroit, nor Chicago, but planted its roots in the Crescent Bend of the Mississippi River in New Orleans, Louisiana in the 1870’s. Antony Sr. migrated up the Mississippi River and rose to the pinnacle of power in St. Louis, Missouri, known as the Gateway to the West.  After a prison term, Sr. fled to Sicily to avoid further inditements. Lil Antony, whose name had been changed to David Steece, grew up in New Orleans and in the Family where he acquired the street name ‘Blackie’ and became a gangsters gangster who rose to become a fearsome enforcer bridging politics and muscle during the reign of alleged Mafia Boss Carlos Marcello. Blackie is described by Government agents as an enigma and sometimes a sociopath…extremely dangerous.  In the life, he became the ‘go to’ problem solver for some of the most powerful people in the South.  The story will open your eyes to things most of us cannot even imagine… Order your copy today!


Blackie’s Revelation

Our story begins in Sicily over ten thousand years ago. Watch as dozens of kingdoms conquer the little island and enslave the natives, inadvertently leaving the locals to form the Code of Omerta.

The Sicilians fled Sicily taking with them the La Costa Nosta’s way of life to the United States. Landing in New Orleans they applied the La Costa Nostra lifestyle and influence there. Then they spread up the Mississippi River to St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago and eventually in the early 1900s, New York City.

The prohibition of alcohol gave the American Mafia the fuel it needed to transform itself into an International Business. A few years after prohibition, the subject of this documentary is born into a kingdom where blood and honor are the only way for The Family Business. Watch as Blackie allegedly becomes one of the most feared street men of New Orleans as depicted by the Interviewees.
