“Criminal Tendencies” is based on the true story of Salvatore Luzani, who went from being an almost normal high school student in the suburbs to forming his own paramilitary “crew” and climbing the ladder to become a top drug dealer. He was not ashamed to fight against any enemy, including the mafia.

Orlando, Florida – December 31, 2022 – Steve Stanley’s new book, Criminal Tendencies: The Salvatore Luzani Story, is based on the true story of the notorious Salvatore Luzani. Readers are given a glimpse of what it’s like to embark on a journey to become a drug dealer and climb the ladder to the highest level, all without being eliminated by various types of criminals.

Make no mistake, this is a book for adults, as it describes the violence that accompanies the profession of drug dealing. Sal Luzani had a fairly normal upbringing in the suburbs of New York, until he realized that his key to riches might be drug dealing. The author has a unique writing style where his main character speaks directly to the reader explaining everything that happens on his way to the top of the drug trade.

It is not often heard of a criminal with nine lives, who manages to defeat his enemies. Sal’s success is due to his organizational skills, which allowed him to assemble a team of ex-military-trained assassins who were willing to deal with all comers, including the mafia. Readers will be surprised at how quickly Sal was able to build a reputation that kept many of his competitors at bay. He never thought that a girl would knock him down.

The author describes in detail all the events that turned this kid from the suburbs into a professional criminal. Sal had the ability to learn what he needed to excel in his new life, including how to make mufflers. It’s easy to see that Sal was enjoying his chosen path until he found himself on the attack facing murder charges and the death penalty.

Sal always knew he had criminal tendencies and it was documented through psychological tests, but he was losing control of them. People died and Sal was tried and acquitted of 2 counts of first degree murder. One would think that his experience would be enough to set him straight, but he constantly found himself doing things that were illegal, and he found them exciting and challenging.

While awaiting trial, Sal became a notorious prison lawyer. He is responsible for the release of at least 50 detainees. His prison clients were mobsters and others who became his debtors. The story of Salvatore Luzani lives on to this day with his endless exploits.
