Beschreibung

1964, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The City of Brotherly Love is being torn apart by personal greed and racial conflict. Within that maelstrom, Jeffry Weiss, the son of a prominent Philadelphia police officer, is trapped by his own selfish motivations and an environment that rewards achievement at any price over morals. Disillusioned, Jeffry seeks a life of crime, becoming a master thief. In an effort to delve further into his chosen career, he ingratiates himself with the Black, Jewish and Italian Mafias, falling into a downward spiral of grave conflict with family, traditions, and the legal system. Contrasting himself with his father, Jeffry becomes appalled at his transformation into a "wise guy." But by the time he decides to get out, he's caught in a spider's web of crime and deception. Unable to escape the clutches of crime boss Sylvan Skolnick in New Jersey, Phil Testa in Philadelphia, and Carlo Gambino in New York, he is forced to participate in more and more dangerous offenses. Finally, indicted by the city, state and the Feds and forced to dig his own grave, there is nowhere for Jeffry to go but upward. Every event and character in the book is real. Some names were changed out of respect, or fear, for those still living.

BIOGRAPHY

Mr. Weiss attended Central High School, at the time recognized as the top High School academically in the U.S. He then attended Drexel University where he gained a BS in History, Temple University where he earned an MA in Economics and the University of Pennsylvania where he received an MA in International Affairs. Those studies provided him with unique insights in the realm of foreign policy, military capabilities, détente, and trade.

He has been a writer for forty plus years and has penned hundreds of articles on social, political, and economic issues. He has written position papers for the Carter and Clinton Administrations and his work on social issues has received recognition directly from the office of the President of México. He speaks regularly with Noam Chomsky on political, economic, cultural, and military issues.

Mr. Weiss writes political, military, economic and scientific thrillers. There are now twelve books in the Paul Decker series. All his stories come right off the front pages of the major magazines and newspapers but none of his plots has ever found their way into novel before. His characters are ones readers can relate to: flawed, not superheroes. His stories do not require a leap of faith or use deus ex machina.

Finally, he has written a stage play, "Einstein at the Guten Zeiten (good times) Beer Garden, and an urban horror novel: "The Art of Theft", a modern day version of "The Picture of Dorian Grey" by Oscar Wilde.
