-- Marko Bennett, a handsome young marine, recently returned home from two and a half years in the "Special Services" serving on the front-line in Afghanistan against the Taliban. A spoilt, educated kid, Marko enjoys the fast lane. He is an adrenaline junkie who likes to party hard and hangs out with Leroy Brown, a reputed L.A. gangster. Racing cars for his big name sponsors and stealing expensive luxury cars, Marko street races for Leroy and is linked with a gambling syndicate doing cocaine deals on the side. He winds up in trouble with the law and is sent to New York by his father, the head of the LAPD, who has ties to the mafia. Edward Martin, the top attorney for the mafia in New York, takes young Marko under his wing, setting him up as a personal assistant to his wife Alessandra in the fashion industry. He has a steamy romance with their daughter Georgia, who also works for the massive Fashion Enterprise. Marko becomes a "made man", hanging out with hardcore mobsters and enjoys very close relations with Ciro Pistone (The Don), Frankie Napatano (Underboss) and other core member. Marko's fate is entwines heavily with the Mafia's operations and he becomes involved in extortion murder and other activities in New York, Los Angeles and Miami. The range of his activities extends from Sicily to the cocaine enterprise in the jungles of Columbia. He loves life on the edge, throwing caution to the wind as he rises up the mafia ranks.
