He is unaware of the good and evil forces working diametrically behind the scenes. The good seeking to enrich him, the evil seeking to kill him. He doesn't know it yet, but shortly he will either be rich or he will be dead --- or both.

His former boss and now his nemesis, Jimmy "the nose" Provitera is released from prison while awaiting a new trial. Jimmy, who was sent to prison based on Frankie's testimony in court, vows to kill Frankie and take Biff's fortune for himself. Frankie has also made a vow---a vow to avenge the horrific beating Jimmy's goons inflicted on his father, Louie, when Jimmy was unable to find Frankie to punish him for a perceived wrong-doing and took it out on his father instead.
In conversation with Marcus, Biff's son, Frankie discovers that Biff owned a house on Staten Island. With Marcus' help they find the house, where they discover evidence that Biff owned a safe deposit box in a nearby Staten Island bank.
Employing the services of a professional forger, they forge Biff's signature at the bank and retrieve the box. Upon opening the box they discover...???
