It’s 1942, and Michael O’Sullivan, the boy who saw his father murdered in Road to Perdition, is in his early twenties. Now Michael Satariano, the adopted son of Sicilian restaurateurs, he returns from the Philippines a war hero, the first ever Congressional Medal of Honor winner. But Michael’s past is filled with deadly secrets, including the fact that at age 12 he killed his father’s killer. When Eliot Ness approaches him, Michael sees his chance to wreak further vengeance, this time upon Al Capone and Frank Nitti, the men he believes ordered his father’s murder. Stanley Tucci’s performance ripples with quiet menace. His narration is as powerful and understated as Michael himself--never self-promoting, never intrusive. Max Allan Collins scores again with the second installment in the O’Sullivan family saga, and Stanley Tucci’s treatment of this fascinating period piece is guaranteed to keep the listener enthralled.
