      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great book

      If you liked the Godfather then you will love this book. It weaves through deals, murders and family matters in Las Vegas and New York.

      The Don is the head of the family, he has control over all mafia goings on in Sicily, and most of America. He wants his family to gradually leave the gangster world so his grandchildren dont have to be involved.

      The plot follows the familys progress through the gambling world and a major hotel/casino. The inner workings of how casinos keep the punters coming in and spending more is very interesting and probably true. The book goes into some detail here and makes you never want to give a casino your money!

      The book also follows Claudia, a grandaughter in her progress through the movie world. It has a lot of jargon about the workings of movies like with the casino and is more descriptive here.

      The main character Cross is really a good boy, he is very clever, follows the lead of his father and does what he is told. He does however take some risks that lead to a very good twist at the end.

      I would recommend this book to people who like crime, scandal and mafia stories. Its quite hard going in places and takes a while to get going on some things, just like in Italian films. I really enjoyed reading it and it really keeps you gripped all the way through.

      I got this in a book swap but you can find it for about $15 paperback in Australia.
