Former Mafia Boss Transformed by the Blood

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.

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? In his book, Blood Covenant, and during a recent interview, Franzese reveals the answers to the many mysteries surrounding his incredible life.
