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.

    "Powerful beautiful story of God's Grace"

    I loved listening to Michael tell his story. Hearing his story in his voice with his own words was so impactful. The details he gave made me feel like I was there. I've always been fascinated with the mob and now I feel like I have a good friend who was once a mobster and is now a brother in Christ. I love this book! I only wish it was longer!

    "God Bless Mr. Franzese (Jr.)"
    What did you love best about Blood Covenant?

    I admire his courrage. It takes real cojones to go through what he went through and come out strong. This is what love does, all for his family. I am against drugs, anything ilegal and all that has to do with the mafia. It is a very dangerous life that one should never step into it. I'm very happy to see that he came out of it alive. I loved his book and his honesty. God is looking over you Mr. Franzese. Thank you for getting out of that life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    His wife for believing in him and giving him so much support to get out of the life. That is real love!


    What does Michael Franzese bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    OMG, so much! There were moments when tears came out of my eyes because of his struggle of trying to get out of the life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When his father went back to jail.


    Any additional comments?

    This book really moved me, mainly because of his courrage of getting out of that awful life.
