Thirty-five years ago, Mario Puzo's great American tale, The Godfather, was published, and popular culture was indelibly changed. Now, in The Godfather Returns, acclaimed novelist Mark Winegardner continues the story, the years not covered in Puzo's best-selling book or in Francis Ford Coppola's classic films.

It is 1955. Michael Corleone has won a bloody victory in the war among New York's crime families. Now he wants to consolidate his power, save his marriage, and take his family into legitimate businesses. To do so, he must confront his most dangerous adversary yet, Nick Geraci, a former boxer who worked his way through law school as a Corleone street enforcer, and who is every bit as deadly and cunning as Michael. Their personal cold war will run from 1955 to 1962, exerting immense influence on the lives of America's most powerful criminals and their loved ones.

Sweeping from New York and Washington to Las Vegas and Cuba, The Godfather Returns is the spellbinding story of America's criminal underworld at mid-century and its intersection with the political, legal, and entertainment empires. Mark Winegardner brings an original voice and vision to Mario Puzo's mythic characters while creating several equally unforgettable characters of his own. The Godfather Returns stands on its own as a triumph in a tale about what we love, yearn for, and sometimes have reason to fear...family. Download and start listening now!

    " It took me a while to get into this book because it had been so long since I read the original, but after I figured out who everyone was and what their stories, I really came to enjoy the book. Like any great mob book, it was full of twists and turns and deaths and cheats. My main problem with the book, though, was that there were so many twists and turns and secret plots and subplots that I got confused toward the end. I think, though, that this author is trying to lay the groundwork for additional books in the Godfather series. For that reason, I think the book did a great job, and I would definitely be interested in another sequel. "

    " I found this hard to get into at the start, but then it clicked maybe 75 pages in. I really enjoyed the story and the flow of it. It was very complimentary of the original book, the Sicilian, and the movies. "
