The world of gangster Angelo Vestieri is one of day-to-day survival through murder and brutality. Author Lorenzo Carcaterra shows readers Vestieri’s life, from his early days to his final gang war, through the eyes of both a former love and the boy the old don takes under his wing. The story of Vestieri’s ruthless rise to power is gripping, thanks to both the writing and Joe Mantegna’s powerful narration. Mantegna fully inhabits his characters, capturing their emotions and personalities well with his voice and bringing humanity to even the worst actions. Carcaterra doesn’t shy away from violence in his account, and many scenes are graphically described. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
