Overview

Bella Capo, the sexually and physically abused daughter of a powerbroker, whose close associates included politicians and organized crime figures, and a drug-addicted mother, spent much of her youth in foster homes and rehabilitation facilities. As a young adult she became a
force on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip, running clubs and after-hours clubs. After a failed marriage
to an abusive husband, Bella became a boss in the Crips—the only white female to hold such
a position of power in the gang at that time. She later fled Los Angeles in fear for her life when
her ex-husband and his associates stalked her and threatened her with death.
Although she could have died many times, Bella survived and overcame the obstacles to co-found La Bella Mafia, a online group that provides assistance and couseling to abuse victims - especially those in life-threatening situations.
This courageous woman has now come out of hiding to share her story. It will serve as an inspiration to the hundreds of thousands of abuse victims in the United States who suffer in silence.

Editorial Reviews

Vegas Unwrapped Radio - Ricky Cash
This is one remarkable lady. She has a presence about her that just inspires you to want to reach out and help someone. We need more people out there like Bella Capo whose sole mission in life is helping women in serious need. Congratulations on a most definitely inspiring book and movement you have created.

This story is riveting, somewhat painful to read, but imagine the Bella Capos of this world who weather this sort of physical and emotional abuse and come out on the other side willing to help others and educate the world! I cringed at the stories, the worded visuals, the turmoil this poor child and woman endured. What kind of strength that must take! Amazing recollection of a life nobody should have to experience.

Mt. San Antonio College - John Brantingham
It’s great! “The most difficult books to read are often the books that are the most important to read. La Bella Mafia shows us the pain that exists all around us as well as those people who are struggling against it.”
The Well Red Coyote bookstore - Kris Neri
The ultimate making lemons into lemonade story! Bella Capo’s journey from horrific abuse to building La Bella Mafia, a worldwide network of women helping other women in trouble, will fill you with a sense of hope. An awe-inspiring story.
