In The Godfather’s Revenge, the third and concluding novel in Mario Puzo’s landmark saga, Mark Winegardner moves the Corleone family onto the biggest stage of all: the intersection of organized crime and national politics. At its center:

Michael Corleone, boss of America’s most powerful crime family, is a haunted man, tormented by demons from his past, even as he pursues the mantle of legitimacy.

Former caporegime Nick Geraci, Michael’s onetime top earner, is a hunted man, sought with equal fervor by the Corleones, who want him dead, and the feds, whose designs are less clear.

US Attorney General Daniel Brendan Shea, brother to James Shea, the galvanizing young president, is an ambitious man, determined to forge a name for himself by toppling the kingpins of organized crime.

Carlo Tramonti is a vindictive man, the capo of the New Orleans syndicate, who will exact his revenge for public humiliation, no matter the cost.

Tom Hagen is a trapped man, an Irish consigliere in an Italian world, charged with brokering a nearly impossible compromise to spare his organization the wrath of the government, and in doing so, putting himself in mortal peril.

The explosive collision of these five powerful men culminates in a tragedy of historic proportion, an unforgettable capstone to Puzo’s great American epic. But the true measure of Mark Winegardner’s achievement is in capturing not only the outsized personalities who outmaneuver each other for power and control, but also their interior lives. He reveals the colorful array of wives and daughters, parents and friends who surround them, and the intimate details, textures, contradictory impulses and best intentions of that strangest and most exotic of institutions, family.
