Beschreibung

New York, 1933. The city and the nation are in the depths of the Great Depression. The crime families of New York have prospered in this time, but with the coming end of Prohibition, a battle is looming that will determine which organisations will rise . . . and which will face a violent end.

For Vito Corleone, nothing is more important than his family's future. His youngest children, Michael, Fredo, and Connie, are in school, unaware of their father's true occupation. His adopted son, Tom Hagen, is a college student; but he worries most about Sonny, his oldest child. Vito pushes Sonny to be a businessman, but Sonny - seventeen years old, impatient, and reckless - wants something else: to follow in his father's footsteps, and become a part of the real family business.

An exhilarating and profound novel of tradition and violence, of loyalty and betrayal, THE FAMILY CORLEONE carries on the legacy of The Godfather for a new generation.

"Rousing legacy filler. Tracing the rise of Vito Corleone’s New York crime family, it won’t disappoint fans."

Ed Falco

"Rousing legacy filler. Tracing the rise of Vito Corleone's New York crime family, it won't disappoint fans." Shortlist "Falco ably exploits the tension between civility and brutality. The result is good, messy fun." Guardian "[C]hannels the original so well that readers will be vividly reminded of Puzo's strengths ... His moments of blam-blam-blam are ace. Best of all, he supplies a grand set-piece finale--a parade-that will leave readers dreaming of just one more movie." Booklist "Falco's depiction of Vito Corleone captures both the cool reserve of young Vito and the insight he demonstrates as Don. A worthy addition to the lurid world of the Five Families. " Kirkus "Falco's solid Godfather prequel fills in the backstory of the iconic New York City Mafia family ... Puzo fans will find this a refreshing change from the inferior sequels."
