Now she's 17 and faced with horrors she never thought existed.
"Audiobook is even better than the book in print."
Antonio and Megan are running. Running away. Megan's father told them to. Antonio and Megan fly to South Bend, Indiana. They are hiding out at Notre Dame until it's safe to come home. But will it ever be safe with the line of work Antonio and Megan's father do? There is no escaping the mob. It's part of your existence!
Vito has grown up in the underworld of the mob. He has recently reached age 18. His family has been involved since the 30s. In 2014, the rules haven't changed much. What worked then, works now: power, violence, and loyalty. Love isn't something you can control. As much as Vito, mobster enforcer, wish he could, he can't. And falling in love with someone who is close to jailbait age is even tougher. Vito bides his time and waits. For a hasty guy with limited self-control, it's difficult to curb his impulses.
