Publisher's Summary

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 18 on Fortune magazine's list of the 50 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 Mafia, Michael Franzese reveals the 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.

Amazing

What made the experience of listening to Blood Covenant the most enjoyable?

Micheal's story is unreal. As a mob history buff his story is by far my favorite. Its not the typical mob story filled with murders. Its more of the story of someone who became the biggest earner for la cosa nostra then walked away without becoming a rat. He gets into how his faith helped him in his path to walk away, that might be a turn off for the none religious types (I'm by no means a big religious person) but don't let that turn you away. It truly is an unbelievable story. I listened to it many times over and I really cant say enough about how good the story is. If you are a mob fan, you need this book.

There Are No Limits To God's Grace.

Do you know what I really love about this audio book? Its central theme. What is its central theme? The power of God's Grace! It reminds me that there are no limits to what God's Grace can do in a person's life. Here is the story of a New York Mafia boss who ends up rejecting the life of La Cosa Nostra, and embracing the life as a Christian believer. That's amazing! Listen! I'm not even going to tell you what happens. Buy the audio book and listen to it yourself. Arrivederci.

Entertaining

It's what he doesn't say that is the real story! Reading between lies and piecing it all together it was makes this tale truly fascinating.
