My father, Giacomo "Jack" Bianco was my best friend. He was murdered when I was only 14 yrs. old. I was complelled to write his story about his life and death for the past 40 years. Now it has become a reality. "THE FAMILY DEBT" is now available at Amazon.com.
He was only 49 when his life was taken. The book is based on his family, his association with organized crime and what his family's thoughts are as to why his life was taken.
This is a cold case since the men who murdered him never were brought to justice.
