“Sign here, Salvatore.”
Three words changed his world.
With the contract on the table, Sal considered his options.
Winding up by accident in the Middle-of-Nowhere, Texas, he ventured into another world. With scrutiny, he listened to their lies and deceit, but it wasn’t long before he realized a devious monster aimed to take control.
The grooming they offered in the words of the contract might be worse than enduring his familial blood ties…
If he returned home, then his father’s ideal outcome for his only son would force the young man into being trained for the family business. Refusing his father’s violence, Sal wanted no part of the mafia, but he was out of options––stay moving or give up fighting against his legacy. The insidious contract held the lure of stability and protection he craved.
He had to make a decision.
Sign or walk away.
But Sal wasn’t as fresh to the game as they thought. He was raised in mayhem and manipulation. With a fierce determination and mischievous charm, he acknowledged the precise calculation of every minute and vowed to outplay the players.
And you’re secretly invited to join his game as he eliminates or harbors the pieces one by one.
With a candid look into the past, Sal removes the shadows concealing the hidden secrets and clandestine meetings of his beloved Little Black Book. Flipping through the memories, he recounts the lucrative indiscretions that made him the man he is today. As the keeper of his clients’ dirty laundry, he vigilantly held the promises contained in the contract, until now…
Over the course of 24 books, Sal Raniero’s Little Black Book has been mentioned many times. For the first time ever, he opens the heart of his past and reveals the women who adored him.
In this prequel to the first client, The Contract offers a means to an end, and at the time, Sal’s very survival.
