Description

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.

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!

not as expected

story was a very in-depth as I'd like. different kind of story. didn't like the fact of his future wife being barely out of high school and him and his 30s. he talked about buying his young wife teddy bears and presents to make her feel better and it just resonated as a child to me. couple times he has said she was a child just that part is weird to me. shows not all Mobsters are violent and killers.

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.

Unbelievable Story!!!

This is an unbelievable story of someone who reached the pinnacle of the mafia and who gave it all up because of the love he felt for the woman of his dreams. Michael paid a terrible price for his past crimes but turned his life around. This goes to show you that anyone can turn their life around if they truly want to despite the obstacles ahead. Hearing the authors own words really brought this book to life...
