About Michael Franzese
Following in his father’s footsteps, in the mid-1980s, Fortune Magazine listed Franzese as number 18 on its list of the “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses.” According to a Federal report, Franzese made more money for a crime family than anyone since Chicago Outfit boss Al Capone. . . Today, Franzese speaks to audiences across the country about his past and transformation through a Christian ministry called Outreach and works diligently to re-direct the lives of at-risk-youth through his charitable organization, Michael Franzese Ministries. Franzese has also authored several books about his life, including “Quitting the Mob,” “Blood Covenant,” “I’ll Make You an Offer You Can’t Refuse,” and “The Good, the Bad, and the Forgiven.”
