1.0 out of 5 stars What was Richard Condon thinking?, May 16, 2004
By 
This review is from: Prizzi's Money (Mass Market Paperback)
What happened? That was my reaction to this pitiful excuse of a book. Mr. Condon has succeeded in doing the impossible: he made the Prizzi crime family into something ridiculous. I loved the other Prizzi novels; "Prizzi's Honor" remains one of my favorite organized crime novels. That makes Prizzi's Money all the more intolerable. In this story, the Prizzi's are portrayed as bumbling, brainless oafs, easily deceived and utterly incompetant, both at crime and at legitimate business. WHAT?! Condon's first three novels introduced us to a vicious, professional, criminal family that had risen to the top of their world. Suddenly, they devolve into a pathetic cliche. Essentially the novel can be summed up as follows: woman steals money from Prizzi family, Prizzi attempts to get the money back are (repeatedly) foiled, woman gets away. I could've liked this story, but the Prizzi's here bear no resemblance to the ones in first three novels. Read and enjoy the first Prizzi novels. Try to forget this one was published.

WHAT a revelation. Extremely helpful review. Especiallly since the reviewer compares this book to the other 3 Prizzi works. I thought i might have missed something, so then looked this book up. Now I'm warned off. Thanks very much indeed. Dr. H. Jon Geis, Ph.D., Las Vegas 3-14-10
