New York, 1933. The city and the nation are in the depths of the Great Depression. The crime families of New York have prospered in this time, but with the coming end of Prohibition, a battle is looming that will determine which organisations will rise . . . and which will face a violent end.
For Vito Corleone, nothing is more important than his family's future. His youngest children, Michael, Fredo, and Connie, are in school, unaware of their father's true occupation. His adopted son, Tom Hagen, is a college student; but he worries most about Sonny, his oldest child. Vito pushes Sonny to be a businessman, but Sonny - seventeen years old, impatient, and reckless - wants something else: to follow in his father's footsteps, and become a part of the real family business.
An exhilarating and profound novel of tradition and violence, of loyalty and betrayal, THE FAMILY CORLEONE carries on the legacy of The Godfather for a new generation.
Based on a screenplay by Mario Puzo, this effort from Falco tells the tale of a young Sonny Corleone and his emergence as a blazing force in the world of organized crime a world in which his family will forever be entrenched. Bobby Cannavale delivers standout narration in this spirited audio edition that captures all the raw intensity of the Corleone clan. Cannavale's deep and gritty voice and New York Italian accent are crisp, honest, endlessly intimidating, and perfectly suited to Falco's prose. The narrator's Sonny is just as aggressive and quick tempered as James Caan's in the famous film franchise. This audiobook captures the essence of Puzo's classic tale and will have listeners doing their best or worst Vito Corleone impression at the dinner table. A Grand Central hardcover.
