“Dazzling, passionate, a masterwork that ranks with Puzo’s best.”
—Nicholas Pileggi, author of Wiseguys

“One of his most satisfying works….A thoroughly entertaining posthumous present from one of the masters of popular fiction.”

Mario Puzo’s final masterwork. A sweeping epic saga of corruption, greed, treachery, and sin, The Family is the ultimate crowning achievement of the #1 New York Times bestselling novelist who gave the world The Godfather, arguably the greatest Mafia crime novel ever written.  In The Family, Puzo—whom the Washington Post calls, “A serious American talent”—plunges reader into the colorful tumult of the Italian Renaissance, immersing them in the roiling intrigues and deadly affairs of the remarkable family whose name has always been synonymous with power, corruption, poison, and murder: the infamous Borgias.

Mario Puzo was the author of the international bestsellerThe Godfatherand cowrote the screenplays for the Academy Award-winning trio of films based on the book. Puzo's other books includeThe Last DonandOmerta, bothNew York Timesbestsellers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this book a little a while ago and honestly i must say I was very disappointed. It was very boring to read, I struggled to finish reading it. You don't feel connected in the book at all. I found myself reading the same page over and over again because I find it's hard to pay attention. It was poorly written, and the author changed the story from the real one.
