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 organizations 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; and 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Puzo fans will find this a refreshing change from [other] inferior sequels.” Publishers Weekly
“Falco follows every esoteric character with the same steadicam curiosity. His moments of blam-blam-blam, though, are ace. Best of all, he supplies a grand set-piece finale—a parade—that will have readers dreaming of just one more movie.”  Booklist
“A worthy addition to the lurid world of the Five Families.” Kirkus Reviews
