David speaks with one-time drug kingpin Kevin Pappas talks about his book Godfather of Night: A Greek Mafia Father, a Drug Runner Son, and an Unexpected Shot at Redemption. Pappas, born Kevin Cunningham, was just another kid from the wrong side of the tracks in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Then, he learned as a teenager, that the father who had mistreated him for years wasn’t his father at all. He found that he was born to the mistress of a Greek gangster, Lukie Pappas, head of the biggest Greek crime family in the southeast, and felt that the only way to connect with his real father was to become his fiercest rival.
