When sexy and street-smart Andrea Giovino married a mob drug runner, hers became the task of keeping her children safe—keeping the guns out of reach, washing bloodstains out of her husband's clothes—and maintaining the household's front as a model of domesticity in her quietly luxurious Staten Island neighborhood of doctors and lawyers.

A murder, a DEA set-up, and FBI wiretaps finally brought Giovino, her husband, and her brother to the brink of prison. Defiantly, Giovino chose to retain her identity, facing down threats against her life and courageously divorcing herself from organized crime.

Now a model working parent, Giovino has penned Divorced from the Mob as an inspirational tale for all women, a perspective of mob life largely unexplored by film and literature, and a headline-grabbing exposé of organized crime told in a voice readers will never forget.
