Format: Audio Cassette
This novel is one of the greatest explorations of moral relativism that I have ever run into. Although the novel looks at life, love, family, and Mafia loyalty in comparison to each other, the issues of relative duty are just as significant for each of us. The plot is wonderfully designed to create unexpected tensions that make moral issues compelling and interesting to even the most casual listener or reader.
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.

Fast-paced. Not a lot of character development. But still a wonderful read. The plot flowed well. And the story was accurate and it's portrayal of the New York mafia, its style and customs.

1 of 20 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on January 20, 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There are two types of mob books, it seems. The Mafia fairy-tales, where the mobsters go to church, eat gourmet food, where Gucci suits, and make billions in crime, all the while ascribing to an honorable oath, and only hurting those who defile the oath.
Then, there is the second type, which, judging by descriptions by former real mobsters like Sammy the Bull, portrays a more realistic world where the mobster's dirty business is nothing but glamorous.
If one wants to believe in the mob as a flashy world where somehow ethics and shaking down mom and pop businesses coexist, this book is perfect. If one is truly interested in how the mob is really run, I'd suggest Goodfellas or Casino.
