The "fourth" book in the Saracinesca Trilogy! Actually, a sequel not up to the par of the rest. More dealings with the Saracinesca family, but the focus is on the Corleones, who are a bad Sicilian lot. Mafia! Adventure!

And too many pages. Oh, well. ( )

Here it is: the world's first Mafia novel. And here it is: one of the first (if not the first) literary uses of that now-standard plot element, the priest who cannot defend himself because of the Seal of the Confessional.

And here it is: a far too-long story, and a sequel to the Saracinesca Trilogy that does not do that trilogy justice. ( )
