If you're looking for your next thrilling book adventure, you've come to the right place.
Somehow, this author has managed to blend together the perfect mix of a steady-paced plot and a suspenseful undertone. As you dig deeper into the story, you may find yourself coming to the conclusion that as the saying goes "There's more to the story than meets the eye.". The characters are complex and interesting. The setting brings forward a sort of nostalgia that not all books are able to present. The first page is just as entrancing as the last page, and the last page is just as suspenseful as the first. Until you read the last line, anything could happen in this book.
When I was reading this book, there was a contradiction of sorts taking place in my mind. With nearly every page I turned, I was hoping that the Chimera Group would be able to accomplish their goal of becoming just as well-known and feared as the other crime families in the area. I wanted the to gain power, and I wanted them to gain respect from the Cosa Nostra right along with that power. Essentially, the author was able to make me go against all of my morals and cheer on the criminals in this epic tale. Now, THAT'S powerful writing.
Historical Crime/Organized Crime isn't even my preferred genre of story...actually, I wouldn't even be quick to say that it has ever held a place in my top ten...but this story has a different feel. This is a beautiful Historical Crime piece, but it's also a book that has an element to appease almost any reader that encounters its pages. There are few stories that would hand such a high praise to, but after losing myself in the chapter of this one, I haven't hesitated before writing all that I have.
This is a title that I have recommended to all my "reader friends" and my "bookworm family". I can never pick a favorite character, and I can never pick a favorite quote. Every time someone asks, I just have to tell them to read it for themselves, because this is the kind of story that cannot be explained, it just has to be experienced. The details are so thrilling, and the storyline is so realistic that you can actually feel a connection with the characters...even if you didn't live through the era of the Godfathers.
So, the question still stand: Will they make it to the top, or will they fall? If you want to find out, you're going to have to read this one for yourself, and if you don't want to find out, then there's nothing more for me to say other than "This one is your loss...".
