Publisher's Summary

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, where sleazy producers and greedy studio heads are drunk with power, where crooked cops and desperate gamblers play dangerous games of betrayal, and where one man controls them all.

©1996 Mario Puzo; (P)2009 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"The most entertaining read since The Godfather." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Skillfully crafted....it gives us Hollywood, Las Vegas, and the mob in one sweet dish." (Los Angeles Times Book Review)

    "I HAVE TO GIVE IT 5 STARS"

    I have to give it 5 stars since I have listened to it only 6 times so far and will probably listen to it at least once every 2 years. You gotta Love Puzo

    "A Cheap Imitation"

    I could hardly believe that this was written by the same author who wrote The Godfather. So many two-dimensional characters to keep track of; characters who I frankly didn't care about. The whole thing seemed like a cheap imitation of The Godfather written by some talentless hack.

    "SPELLBOUND!"

    This is an eye opener, at least for me. There is never a dull moment and I had a hard time putting it down to do other things. I highly recommend it!

    "I don't know why I can't get into it"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who haven't read the godfather and just watched the first movie


    What could Mario Puzo have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I jsut couldn't love the characters like the ones in the Godfather book


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joe Barrett?

    No he was fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Sorry Mario.... I love you
