The Three R's of Life - Rogues, Riches and Retribution
Wanting a novel that has a taste of The Godfather and enjoy movies like The Departed, A-Team and other gangster flicks?
Review: Rogues, Riches and Retribution – Harry Taylor – June 2010
After the death of their father , the Italian mafia elders Tony Virenti and his twin brother decide that they must do whatever it takes to avenge their father’s death as of course, being mafia –this means life or death as we have all seen what happens in movies like The Godfather , The Punisher etc.This novel focuses more on the journey of Tony rather than his twin brother as we read that along the way for his journey of revenge against the fellow he killed his father – “The Lawyer”. He soon falls in love with the lawyer’s daughter whom has her own need for revenge against her father as their relationship of father-daughter is starting to near the point of no going back to one another. When she realises that Tony is the son of the man her father killed, she suspects that she has been set up and of course filled with resentment against her father-puts her own personal vendetta against him.
As the story goes on, we discover that this lawyer is in fact one shady and dark dude as he has his fingers in lots of pies as he hires Tony Virenti to handle a mission with the Arabs. When Tony double deals, his focus on the getting back at the lawyer, not towards the Arabs. The Arabs immediately jumps to the conclusion that the Lawyer has set him up and seeks his revenge also.
We reach a crisis point in the story as all three are out to get the lawyer and what happens when all three meet at a garden party hosted by the lawyer? Will the Lawyer be killed by Tony, his daughter or the Arab or will there be a twist of events and the lawyer once again gets off scot-free?
Find out all this and more in this action-packed novel that all fans of the Action/Adventure genre will thoroughly enjoy and as I was reading this, I could easily see this book becoming a film. Just as long as they don’t change the ending to be like The Departed, then we are all safe :)
