Strippers, Lies, and Spaghetti is a novel inspired by the life story of Frank Colacurcio, who was born into the legendary Seattle-based Colacurcio organized crime family and is the nephew of strip club magnate Frank Colacurcio Sr. The author grew up in a traditional Italian home full of love and centered on family values, but as an adult, against his father's and mother's wishes stepped into the world of adult entertainment, expanding the family nightclub empire. In the process, this ruined the lives of hundreds of girlshoping for the promise of easy money, only to find the ugly realities of a broken life.

Ten years later, living a lifestyle that appeared to have everything but turned out to be incompatible with his underlying values and his view of himself as a good Italian Catholic boy, he would be confronted with an undeniable truth that would change the course of his life forever.

In this book, Colacurcio tells the heart of his story while being careful to change the names and details to respect the rights of others to tell their stories, in their time. This is a story that elicits laughter, suspense, tears, and the agony of torn relationships. Finally, this is a story that demonstrates an incredible human capacity for transformation that will appeal to readers everywhere.

About the Author:

For the next ten years, he expanded the empire of clubs into twelve states until an event took place that would forever change the direction of his life. He now lives in Rocklin, California with his wife Dyan, six children and 12 grandchildren.
