From the blockbuster author of The Godfather comes this bold international bestseller about the feverish world of a big-time gambler. Merlyn and his brother, Artie, obey their own code of honor in the ferment of contemporary America, where law and organized crime are one and the same.

Set within America’s golden triangle of corruption and excess—New York, Hollywood, Las Vegas—the novel plunges into the glittering and ruthless worlds of gambling, publishing, and the film industry, where greed, lust, and violence hold sway. As high rollers, hustlers, and scheming manipulators use power, sex, and betrayal to win, the strongest survive—but fools die.

This is a novel only Mario Puzo could have written.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Monica | 2/8/2014

    " I really liked this book. It was different than any I had previously read. About money and fame. I'd recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Yuri | 2/8/2014

    " Nice. Really liked it. I think it's a bit autobiographical, in a sense that the main charachter is Puzo himself, and behaves the way Puzo himself fells like. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Michelle | 2/7/2014

    " Was so glad I read this, Puzo's most personal novel. Where as all his books have been historical fictions on topics like: the Pope, Italian Immigrants, Italian Countryside, American Mafia, I felt this was a historical fiction on himself. The main character is a square writer who maneuvers into getting a book published and a film made and falls into the world of Hollywood. The writing is still so addicting though his female characters are always less believable than their male counterparts. "

    " Sprawling, engrossing, wonderful. Why does Mario Puzo remind me of Salman Rushdie? "
