"New York, 1933 ... The crime families of New York have prospered ... but with the coming end of Prohibition, a battle is looming that will determine which organisations will rise - and which will face a violent end. For Vito Corleone, nothing is more important than his family's future. His youngest children ... are in school, unaware of their father's true occupation; ... but he worries most about Sonny, his oldest child. Vito pushes Sonny to be a businessman, but Sonny - seventeen years old, impatient, and reckless - wants something else: to follow in his father's footsteps, and become a part of the real family business."--Publisher comments
