Passion, revenge, sex and power – the last steaming novel from the late uber novelist has it all
The Santangelos is the 9th book that delves into the world of drugs, murder and money that the Santangelo family inhabits.
Gino Santangelo, an Italian-American former gangster, and his daughter, Lucky, form the backbone of the novels, which are set between the 1920s and the present day, covering the organised crime family’s rivalry with the Bonnatti and Kassari clans.
This epic saga sees Lucky dealing with family problems in the form of fractious children: her teenage daughter Max is in Europe becoming the girl everyone wants to date, and her son Bobby is set up for a murder he didn’t commit. Meanwhile, Lucky has to face the most powerful enemy of all: a drug-obsessed Colombian. But Lucky takes it all in her stride and, along with husband Lennie, she lives up to the family motto: “Never cross a Santangelo”.
