A scion of the powerful D'Angelo crime family, Michael D'Angelo is groomed for success in the world of crime, making his first hit at the age of seventeen and becoming a "made man" at the age of eighteen as he rises through the ranks to take on the role of his ruthless, ambitious father, in an insider's riveting portrait of the inner workings of organized crime. A first novel. Simultaneous.

From Publishers Weekly:

Though promoted as fiction by the its publisher, Pocket, Michael Gambino's The Honored Society reads like a memoir, an impression enhanced by the preface from the author's mother, Carmella Gambino, and by the author's own introduction ("My dad, Vito Gambino, was a career gangster whose father before him was also a gangster") and author's note. In fact, anyone who knows a bit about the Mafia will recognize the Gambino name (John Gotti was/is head of the Gambino Family). This book then seems to be, under the cloak of fiction, the story of the author's rise and fall within the Mob. While it offers a deep insider's view of the Mafia, it provides little that fans of The Godfather, The Sopranos and numerous Mafia memoirs haven't seen or read before. Gambino's tale is extremely violent, and will prove rough reading for many, but the directness and honesty of its recounting are notable.
