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.

"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 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
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.
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!
People who haven't read the godfather and just watched the first movie
I jsut couldn't love the characters like the ones in the Godfather book
No he was fine.
Sorry Mario.... I love you
