Darlene Chase is married to the mob. Grilled by federal prosecutor, Ed Giovanni into sexual submission. She gives birth to their daughter Finity. Never to escape the Mob’s grip, Finity grows up around mobsters, greed, sex, and money. Finity, an Autistic child, never fully grasps the environment around her. Mafia Boss, Big Sal Bonofiglio believes Finity is his daughter and treats her as such. But, little does he know the secrets that have been hidden for years.


Finity, who truly lacks her own identity through much of the book soon realizes she must get out from under the mafia's thumb. But how? Who can help her? Everyone she associates with either winds up dead or is driven away. Who can she trust? Knowing her biological father is long gone, and that “Big Sal” is not her real father, where will she turn? Will it be her childhood sweetheart? Another mobster? Who can save her from this life, a life with no hope?


An unlikely hero surfaces and takes the reader by surprise. Can she be saved from her own family? Who really is her family? A suspenseful book, it will have you hanging on your seat trying to figure out what will happen next!   


“The Finity Case” is a knockdown, drag out, fight until the very end.  The conclusion will leave you with no confusion about who Finity’s family really is!
