After Mario Puzo wrote his internationally acclaimed The Godfather, he has often been imitated but never equaled. Puzo’s classic novel, The Sicilian, stands as a cornerstone of his work–a lushly romantic, unforgettable tale of bloodshed, justice, and treachery.
The year is 1950. Michael Corleone is nearing the end of his exile in Sicily. The Godfather has commanded Michael to bring a young Sicilian bandit named Salvatore Guiliano back with him to America.
But Guiliano is a man entwined in a bloody web of violence and vendettas. In Sicily, Guiliano is a modern day Robin Hood who has defied corruption–and defied the Cosa Nostra. Now, in the land of mist-shrouded mountains and ancient ruins, Michael Corleone’s fate is entwined with the dangerous legend of Salvatore Guiliano: warrior, lover, and the ultimate Siciliano.
