Publisher's Summary

Don Roberto Luciano, boss of the Sicilian Mafia, agrees to be chief witness in the trial of Paul Carolla, who murdered Luciano's firstborn son, Michael, 20 years ago. But despite round-the-clock protection, all the Luciano men are killed the night before a family wedding.

The don's wife, Graziella, holds together what's left of the family - daughters-in-law Theresa and Sophia, and Theresa's daughter Rosa - while instructing their lawyer to sell off business holdings. Eventually, the women become involved in the business themselves, trying to recover money that's disappeared into Carolla's hands.

Following a courtroom shootout, Carolla's adopted son, Luka, using his knowledge of organization politics and his mastery of murder, becomes the women's partner and protector. Once the Luciano women discover Luka's secret, however, they take revenge in the ruthless manner of their age-old code, and the strongest of them becomes the new head of the family: the bella mafiosa.

    "Abridged crap"

    I accidentally bought this pamphlet version & was totally disappointed.
    Why bother reading at all if you don't want the full story.
    Abridged versions should be advertised in bold red so no one mistakes it for the real book.
    Boo hiss
