From the Publisher:
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 organizations will rise and which will face a violent end.
For Vito Corleone, nothing is more important that his family's future. While his youngest children, Michael, Fredo, and Connie, are in school, unaware of their father's true occupation, and his adopted son Tom Hagen is a college student, he worries most about Sonny, his eldest child. Vito pushes Sonny to be a businessman, but Sonny-17 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 will appeal to the legions of fans who can never get enough of The Godfather, as well as introduce it to a whole new generation.
"[The author's] moments of blam-blam-blam . . . are ace. Best of all, he supplies a grand set-piece finale--a parade--that will have readers dreaming of just one more movie. " - Daniel Kraus 03/01/2012 "[T]he story is Puzo-worthy." - Sherryl Connelly 05/20/2012 "Falco has captured Puzo's rich prose style and eye for detail, even as he equals or exceeds Puzo's extravagant violence." - Patrick Anderson 05/20/2012
