The story opens at the wedding of a Mafia don's granddaughter. One of the don's lieutenants, Charley Partanna is instantly smitten with a beautiful woman who appears unexpectedly at the wedding. She quickly disappears, and he tries to find her. His search leads him to California from New York. He finds that she is married, but separated. He falls deeply in love with her. Imagine his chagrin when he dispatches a crook who has stolen from his crime family . . . and the crook turns out to be the woman's estranged husband. What's worse, hundreds of thousands of dollars are still missing. Fortunately, it's insured. But that's not the point. You cannot let people steal from a crime family. What should Charley do now?
What obligation does Charley owe to the don? What does he owe to the don's family, the Prizzis? What does he owe to someone he loves? What does he owe to his own father (who also works for the Prizzis)? What does he owe to himself and his own sense of self respect?
The story is even more complicated by the overhanging debt of honor that the Prizzis owe to Charley. Earlier, another granddaughter had run off to live with another man while engaged to Charley. As a result, she is cut off from the family. She cannot be reconciled with her family until Charley finally marries. That will release that debt of honor.Read more ›
