Quick Pick
- 08 February 2012 -

Son of the Mob follows Vince Luce, the son of the scariest and most important gangster in New York. The story shows how inconvenient is can sometimes be to have a gangster as your father; it interferes with Vince's life so much that sometimes he wishes he was rid of the whole thing. Vince embarks on a Romeo and Juliet style affair with an FBI agent's daughter, tries to save a couple of lowlifes from paying up to his father and generally makes a mess of being a future heir to the illegal Luca empire. As you'd expect in a gangster book, lots of action, but hardly any stereotypical gun-toting A good, fun read - probably best for the middle to top end of the cool-reads age range.
