  • The Last Don

    • UNABRIDGED (18 hrs and 52 mins)

    The last don is Domenico Clericuzio, a wise and ruthless man who is determined to see his heirs established in legitimate society but whose vision is threatened when secrets from the family's past spark a vicious war between two blood cousins. This is a mesmerizing tale that takes us inside the equally corrupt worlds of the mob, the movie industry and the casinos - where beautiful actresses and ruthless hit men are ruled by lust and violence.

    What disappointed you about The Last Don?

    85% of the story was dialogue between movie producers, writers, and actresses. This was definitely more of a Hollywood story than a mafia story. In no way does this compare to The Godfather or The Sicilian.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mario Puzo again?

    Yes


    Which character – as performed by Joe Barrett – was your favorite?

    The only memorable characters were Boz Scaggs and Dante. The performance of the characters was great, it was the story line that was disappointing.

  • Mafia Cop: The Two Families of Michael Palermo; Saints Only Live in Heaven

    Detective Michael Palermo built his career on his unique ability to inhabit two worlds at once: the world of law enforcement and the underworld of New York’s crime family organizations. Palermo participated in over 2,000 arrests while maintaining close relationships with the kingpins of organized crime - ties that allowed him to stay one step ahead of the rest of the New York City Police Department. This true crime drama takes you inside the police force at its most corrupt.

    Definitely kept my attention. The narrator is so good and consistent, that it's actually like listening to various characters interacting. Good story too.
