The story of the Godfather continues in Mario Puzo’s The Sicilian.
Summary of the Book
After his exile, Michael Corleone believes he can return home from Sicil. His father, Don Corleone, sends him a letter, instructing him to track down Salvatore Guiliano, a modern-day Robin Hood who has been stealing from the Cosa Nostra and proving to be a thorn in the feet of corrupt mob bosses. Guiliano carries documents which could end the careers of certain Italian government officials upon publication. Michel must find him and bring him back, but there are many lies surrounding the young bandit. Guiliano is about to face the notorious Don Croce, the Capo di Capi of the Sicilian Mafia. However, the encounter might cost him his life. Mario Puzo incorporates the true story of the Sicilian bandit, Salvatore Giuliano, into this classic novel of suspense.
