When an important Mafia boss is assassinated, no one knows anything. Omerta, the Mafia code of silence, is at work. No information is to be found, not from corrupt banks, rival gangs, or even from the courts. However, the nephew of the dead man and the head of the FBI are determined to track down the murderers. So determined, they join forces to begin their own investigation. After all, in the Mafia world, everyone has a price.

I would if I could, but I can't, so I won't
It is not the godfather, against which all standards are measured. But still is an amazing novel by the same author.
I read it years ago, and is a must in your collection if you like Mafia stuff. Highly recommended!
No idea, I usually either buy a book or listen to a book. But I enjoyed the narrator.
The Godfather, obviously, and being a big fan of the films I started reading/listening to books of Mario Puzo. I was not dissapointed, he has a real talent for letting you into the lives of both the police inspectors and the maffiosi and show you that good an bad is not all that black and white.
I enjoyed the fact that his voice was very well suited to read out this kind of book. He really contributed to the atmosphere of the book. When listening for instance to the part set in Sicily, I really could picture myself there.
I enjoyed it but it did not make me cry nor laugh.
Well worth listening to!
great book. I read this before but I can appreciate it more since listening to it
The only problem with this book is keep being late for appointments didn't want to stop listening excellent.
"absolutely brilliant "
it's a masterpiece for anyone looking for a good old fashioned mafia story. it has everything!!
