Publisher's Summary

Omnio "King" Falcone is the grandson of Don "The Butcher" Falcone, the feared and powerful boss of Detroit's reclusive Mafia faction, known simply as the "Syndicate." As the last Falcone, King is the heir-apparent to his grandfather's throne. Except there is one problem. A big one. 
He is a "difetto," not of pure Sicilian blood. As a result, he has been ostracized by much of the Syndicate. Even worse, the Commission, a secret pantheon of Mafia Bosses from all over the country, has named his Machiavellian uncle the new Boss. 
But King is a brilliant tactician. Even with the odds stacked against him, he rises through the Syndicate ranks. Many of the Family capos have grown to respect and fear him, for he commands a faithful crew of ambitious young wiseguys who have sworn their lives to him. 
After years of methodical planning and forming strategic alliances, King is on the brink of finally being accepted by the Commission when a beautiful young Mafia princess arrives into town from Sicily. Smitten, he decides he must have her as his own. Unfortunately, his arch nemesis - his nefarious cousin Anthony - has already laid claim to her. A war for her affection ensues. When the smoke clears, King is left serving a life sentence in a Federal prison, while Anthony is elevated to Syndicate underboss, ranked second only to his father, the Syndicate's new "Capo di tutti Cappi," Boss of all Bosses. 
But Don Falcone is a crafty tactician himself. He has kept a favor on the books for over 50 years, and when he finally calls it in, King emerges from prison a free man. Listen on and see what it takes...To Be a King!

OMG!! I love this book!!!

I listen to audiobooks because I’m not a big reader, but I love a good mafia story. I follow the author's fan pages and am a little obsessed with King. =) I started reading the print book, and was hooked. I found out that this was in audiobook, and downloaded it last night. I’m only three hours in, and I can’t say enough about this!! It’s sooooo good. It’s like watching a movie in your mind. Gunner is my new favorite author, and I can’t stop listening. The narrator is GREAT. I hope volume 2 comes out soon. If you like The Godfather or the Sopranos or Goodfellas, you HAVE to get this!!
