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!
