Product Description

A sworn member of the Colombo crime family in New York City, Michael Franzese was considered the biggest moneymaker in the mob since Al Capone. At age 35, he was number eighteen on Fortune Magazine's list of the fifty most wealthy and powerful Mafia bosses in America. But then he did the unthinkable. He quit the mob. Franzese met Camille Garcia, who turned his world upside down with her innocent beauty. He fell in love with her, married her and began a new life that didn't include the Mafia. Nobody of Franzese's rank ever just walked away from the mob and lived to tell about it. But Franzese has somehow managed to avoid the grave after he turned his back on the past. But what made him leave the lavish lifestyle of the Mafia? And how has he escaped what should have been sure death after he quit the mob? Now, in one of the most fascinating books ever written about today's Maifa, Michael Franzese reveals answers to the many mysteries surrounding his incredible life. Walk the streets with him and find out how and why he has done what no one else managed to do-and live. Journey with him through a life defined by two blood covenants. The first bound him to the mob. The second set him free.

Author Bio

Michael Franzese's life is all about change. In 1986, Fortune magazine listed him as the eighteenth most powerful mobster in America. At the height of his power, he raked in millions a week through slick scams and used his wits and charm to keep the likes of John Gotti from moving in on his turf. The son of one of the most-feared mob enforcers in New York City, Michael took his own blood oath to join the Colombo crime family in 1975. But a criminal career that skyrocketed from its outset ended in 1989 when Michael quit the mob. Breaking his ties with the Mafia, he found himself part of a new blood covenant when he became a Christian. Now, Michael is a new man with a new mission in life. He travels around the world relating the experiences of his former life with students, pro athletes, business executives, at-risk youth, and anyone else who needs inspiration for life's challenges.

    This is another story of God's redemptive power to forgive and restore a person..even the worst person. All are given the chance to be save and be restored back to God. This story is another example and an encouragement to those who are lost.

    If you are into the "Sopranos" or anything that's related to the Mafia, this book is for you. It's a super-charged tale of a man who was a kingpin in one of the five New York City crime families. This slick schemer was raking in millions a week, and then he decided it was time to do something that defied common sense. Want to know what? Then buy this book! You won't want to put it down!
