Gangster Redemption (LL Research & Consulting) is the life story of Larry Lawton, one of America's most notorious jewel robbers. Growing up in the Bronx and Brooklyn, New York, Larry was an altar boy until the day he was sexually molested by a priest. As a teen needing to prove his manhood, he began a criminal career that included 'enforcer' for the Gambino crime family and six years up and down the East Coast pulling off jewelry heists worth over 15 million dollars - to the frustration of both the police and the FBI.
Co-written by 8-time New York Times bestselling author Peter Golenbock, Gangster Redemption truly is the life story of a 'Goodfella' turned 'good guy' who gets his life back on track to help and inspire others. His riveting story has it all; the millions he made from robberies, prison torture, the New York mafia, and much more. A blockbuster movie waiting to happen, Gangster Redemption takes readers on a white-knuckle, roller-coaster ride to hell and back!
Lawton understands first-hand the fine line between making good and bad choices; he spent six years in the Coast Guard before making bad choices that led to associations with organized crime. In prison he saw inmates stabbed and friends die. He saw young men raped and pimped out as prostitutes for other inmates. He studied to become a paralegal while in prison and acted as a gang mediator. Larry fought prison abuses and for doing so, spent three years in the "hole" being tortured by guards - and somehow kept his sanity by helping other inmates.
