Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

First published under a pseudonym in 1967, two years before The Godfather, this thin revenge thriller from Puzo (1920–1999) grafts elements of The Count of Monte Cristo onto a post-WWII European setting. Ten years after American Michael Rogan was left for dead by the Nazis and miraculously survived what should have been a fatal head wound in 1945, Rogan, now the millionaire owner of a computer company, returns to Europe for revenge. After dispatching the first of seven men who murdered his pregnant wife and interrogated him to get Rogan to disclose the Allies' secret codes, the avenger hooks up with Rosalie, a prostitute with a heart of gold, who becomes his companion and assistant. Displaying little of the sophisticated plotting or fully fleshed characterizations that distinguished Puzo's best work, this reissue won't add much luster to his reputation. (May)

Format: Paperback
Mario Puzo wrote this novel in 1967 using a nom de plume following publication of two books which had received critical notice but few sales, and two years before the hugely successful "Godfather." Little attention was paid to it and it quickly went out of print until it was found by his Polish publisher and has now been brought out in paperback.

Certainly no blockbuster, but definitely a workmanlike effort telling the story of a young man serving as a clandestine intelligence agent near Paris who is captured by the Gestapo on D-Day when transmitting on a secret radio. Taken to Munich with his pregnant wife, he is tortured and interrogated by seven men in an effort to get him to reveal the allies' secret codes. Ultimately, they shoot him and believe he is dead.

However, he survives, is treated in VA hospitals, and to some extent recovers. Eventually making a substantial amount of money in the computer industry, he embarks on a journey to exact revenge for what was done to him and his wife. This is the story of how he tracks down his tormentors and his plan to kill them.

Recommended.

Format: Paperback
This is MP's fourth published book, under pseudonym, and like the three preceding books written under his own name, it was a critically acclaimed, but not a financial success. Legend has it that MP (1920-99) wrote his first handful of books at a kitchen table in a small apartment amidst the noise of his large family. He became world famous in 1969 when "The Godfather" was published. With director Francis Ford Coppola, he produced the scripts for three truly great films.
This book is something else and deals with WW II hero Michael Rogan, a brilliant cryptographer and spy, is caught in France in 1944 and taken to Munich in 1945. Where he and his pregnant French wife underwent lengthy torture sessions to extract the allied forces' encoding protocols. Seven torturers were present throughout his ordeal. Shortly before the fall of Munich, Michael is shot in the back of the head and left for dead in a pile of corpses.
But he survives miraculously. He needs years before he is able to plan revenge. Thanks to his perfect memory and new wealth as co-owner of a computer company, he becomes an avenger. But to find all seven torturers so many years later, is a tall order...
Quite a nice thriller, despite some style and credibility issues.

Format: Paperback
Clearly Puzo's service in the Second World War deeply influenced a great deal of his work including this pre-Godfather effort. This is a tidy little tale that I picked up in a La Guardia Borders and finished before I touched down in Montreal (it is just over 200 pages). It moves with speed and is rife with interesting characters, however, the plot is a touch too fantastic yet highly entertaining. Anything with a revenge plot against evil Nazis cannot be too bad. I also think it may have influenced Robert Littell's The Amateur as there are similarities.

Format: Paperback
Never heard about this book. Ever. First published in 1967; five years before I drew my first breath. Forty-four years later, the words have not lost their effect. 2,294 weeks later the impotent helplessness can still be felt. 16,060 days later and the need for revenge, still unsated. 385,440 hours later and the torturous hauntings of the Munich Palace of Justice are still causing nightmares.

Michael Rogan has been raked through hell and has lived to tell about it. Unfortunately, just because you make it through hell doesn't mean that is a good thing. Michael has scars and not all of them are on the outside of his body. We also learn, in raw-nerve clarity, that time does not heal all wounds. Michael has a number of special gifts and chooses to use these gifts to help the United States win the war. His work is extraordinary but in his carelessness he does get caught. And in a page right out the `Terrorist Book for Cowards', the Germans not only torture him... but his wife as well. Wait... his pregnant wife. Excruciating pain doesn't even begin to describe what Michael's despair as he heard his wife being tortured in the next room...

Adding that mind-numbing horror to the aberrant violence already visited on him is the perfect fuel to his fire. He goes on a revenge killing spree with the bloody precision of an assassin. What I truly liked about this story was how undeterred Michael was. Sometimes violence IS the answer and sometimes you must repay blood with blood. Mario Puzo tells a story of violence with severity, fury, and force. And as I said earlier, all of Michael's pain isn't on the surface; the same can be said for this story. Oh the perpetrators leave their share of blood, but the one question I have for Michael is, "what kind of pain must you be in to mete out THAT kind of punishment"?

Despite Mario's celebrated bibliography, this is the only book I've read by him. But what a one it was.

It has all of the elements. It's a revenge story, it's non-linear, there are nazis, gangsters, an antagonist that was left for dead ( with a plate in his skull ), and a love story involving a prostitute.

This is not the type of book I usually read but it sounded intriguing. I enjoyed the book but had a few small issues with it. The lack of background information on the main character left me with real no connection or emotion for him. I didn't really care whether he was able to exact his revenge but at the same time I was intrigued as he was doing it. I found it a bit unbelievable that he was able to accomplish the tasks he was accomplishing. This is one of those books I was glad I read but I can't really pinpoint exactly how I felt about it once I was finished.
