Don Raymonde Aprile is an old man, wily enough to retire gracefully from organized crime after a lifetime of ruthless conquest.  His three children have grown up to become respectable members of the establishment.  To protect them from harm, and to keep an eye on his group of international banks, Don Aprile has adopted a "nephew" from Sicily, Astorre Viola, whose previous legal guardian made the unfortunate decision of committing suicide in the trunk of a car.Don Aprile's retirement is viewed with suspicion by Kurt Clike, the FBI's special agent in charge of investigating the Mafia.  Clike has achieved remarkable success in breaking down the bonds among families, cultivating high-ranking sources, who, in return for federal protection, have violated omerta-Italian for "code of silence".As Clike and the FBI mount their campaign to wipe out the Mafia once and for all, Astorre Viola nd the Apriles find themselves in the midst of one last war, a conflict in which it is hard to distinguish who is on the right side of the law, and whether mercy or vengeance is the best course of action.Rich with suspense, dark humor, and larger-than-life characters who have turned Mario Puzo's novels into modern myths, OMERTA is a powerful epitaph for the Mafia at the century's end and a final triumph for a great American storyteller.

The plot is intriguing and Puzo carries the drams fluently from page to page. However,it may be important to know that The Sicilian and Omertà bear no remblance to The Godfather 2 and The. Godfather 3,respectively.

Its a really gd story. Beautiful writing. My favorite book of the god father series i read so far. Of course god father one which movie is based on has a good story but the writing in this one is better

One of Puzo's best. Great read.

On the first half, this novel was very good and attractive. I manage to finish first half in one day only. But, after going second half, it remind me of The Last Don. The character, the plot, and even some conversations were similar. So, 3 stars

To me, this book is like an alternate version of The Godfather. If his kids were never involved and the attempted hit actually succeeded, that would be this book.

The characters are complex and it's fascinating to watch them evolve throughout the book. The storyline can be a bit over the top in how unrealistic it is, but I never found myself wanting to put it down.

I bought this originally years ago and recently purchased the Kindle edition to read on my tablet. The formatting is done nicely, which can be an issue in some books.

For me, Puzo is always a must-read. I just can't figure out why Hollywood hasn't made a movie of it yet.

Like the author's novels a lot.

Fantastic Journey Through The Eyes of Mario Puzo unbelievable tell family Redemption murder a must-read for any Puzo fan. You won't be able to put it down
I bought this audiocassette version of the late Mario Puzo's OMERTA
back in the early 2000's and enjoyed Micheal Imperioli's narration of it
because he really has a way of bringing you into the story and the characters.
But my only point of contention is that they didn't release this audio novel in CD form!
I mean in 2009 going into 2010, who still has a cassette deck except
the most die hard of old schoolers who refuse to go quietly into the
digital age without a dirty low down brawl! (-:
(Like a couple of my uncles for instance!)
Once they release this version to CD, I will be glad, and will happily purchase it again.
I've heard that they did a CD version which was narrated by the actor Joe Montegna,
and I like him too as an actor and narrator, but I don't see why Imperioli's version
can't be digitally remastered and reproduced in CD form, since it's already been recorded.
Anywayz, a good audio book.
