TO A MAFIA BOSS, BLOOD MATTERS MORE THAN ANYTHING…
EVEN MORE THAN THE SON HE SPENT FIFTEEN YEARS RAISING AS HIS OWN.
When a DNA test reveals an accidental hospital baby-switch fifteen years prior, two teenage boys find their lives upside down and their futures uncertain. Against his will, Nicholas Cooper is abruptly transplanted from his idyllic vineyard home to the crime-ridden streets of Providence. His biological father — none other than notorious crime boss Vinnie “Cocktails” Merlino — has big plans to retake control of Cuba’s once-flourishing casino scene… and those plans include his rightful heir standing by his side.
As Nick grows ever more deeply enmeshed in Vinnie’s violent underworld, he unwittingly becomes the focus of a Central Intelligence Agency investigation, led by new recruit Hannah Summers. From the colorful streets of Havana to the snow-capped trails of upstate New York… through blood rites, flying bullets, Belizean jungles, and family betrayals… BLOOD SONS poses the ultimate question of nature versus nurture.
Does the blood in your veins determine the man you’ll become? You can't choose your family... Sometimes, they choose you.
