Cursed, numb, rejected, scorned, wicked, sinister, dark, and twisted...this is Tex Campisi's legacy. He killed his father in cold blood and lost his soul right along with him. He craves war more than peace, and he's about to take his place in history as the youngest capo dei capi in the Cosa Nostra - that is until someone stops him, saves him from himself. But the only person able to do that is Tex's best friend's sister, Mo Abandonato, and she just ripped his heart out and asked him to hold it in his hands while she put bullets through it.
He is cursed, so he did it. He is numb, so he held it. He's wicked, so he liked it.
Tex used the pain Mo caused as a catalyst to turn into his biggest nightmare - the five families' greatest enemy. It is Tex's turn to take a stand, knowing full well he is going to lose his mind to the madness that is the American Mafia. He has always been told blood is thicker than life. Tex wishes he would have listened, because regardless of who you love, you will betray. You will kill. Blood always wins. The only way out is death.
Welcome to the dark side of the family.

Loving this series so much.
Oh my.............my heart went out to both Tex and Mo, I mean, I was teetering on the edge of Tears so many times. This is definitely the most emotional story in the series so far. So many secrets and so much heart ache. I love the multiple points of views that Rachel Van Dyken has written, I love the fact that each story involves all previous and future characters and I love the intensity of all the mob bosses and the devotion of their family. In book 4 we follow Tex as he struggles with his feelings for Mo and his duty to do the right thing by his family bearing in mind the motto they live by is 'blood always wins.' With so many plot twists and turns, so much traitorous behaviour, and so much violence I had no idea who to trust to do the right thing, if anyone. I was invested in this story from the first page, in fact the whole series has me on tenderhooks. So many surprises. I'm loving it. The narration for all the characters is spot on. I could listen to their voices all day, oh wait, I did!
