"Dazzling, passionate, a masterwork that ranks with Puzo's best."
--Nicholas Pileggi, author of Wiseguys

"One of his most satisfying works....A thoroughly entertaining posthumous present from one of the masters of popular fiction."

Mario Puzo's final masterwork. A sweeping epic saga of corruption, greed, treachery, and sin, The Family is the ultimate crowning achievement of the #1 New York Times bestselling novelist who gave the world The Godfather, arguably the greatest Mafia crime novel ever written. In The Family, Puzo--whom the Washington Post calls, "A serious American talent"--plunges reader into the colorful tumult of the Italian Renaissance, immersing them in the roiling intrigues and deadly affairs of the remarkable family whose name has always been synonymous with power, corruption, poison, and murder: the infamous Borgias.

The Borgia story -- how ambition leads some who are supposed to be the best of us, to do the worst things possible.

Good mafia story for true fans.
