The Family Debt is a tribute to the author's father, Giacomo "Jack" Bianco. He was a man who lived his life with passion for his family, a man who worked hard at everything he did. His unselfish nature was exposed year after year, experience after experience. Giacomo was undoubtedly a family man who never let his family down; no matter the cost.
Never asking questions, he simply chose to rise to the occasion time after time to preserve the integrity of his family and to protect his personal and business interests. He didn't make excuses, he simply delivered what was required, when it was required.
Then suddenly one day the core of the family was taken forever; his life was extinguished. Over time, more questions surfaced, but unfortunately no answers or explanations. Did he know how steep the price would be to protect his family?
The detectives and investigators, they were simply told to "shelve the investigation." This happened only three days after this horrible murder, a file never to be opened again. Almost forty years later the same questions still pierce the silence once filled by a father's voice. His family's thoughts are finally revealed and shared for the first time.
