.The BookViral Review:
From the Bronx to Las Vegas Lombardi takes us on a powerful journey that reflects the best and worst in human nature as he taps into a universal need to believe in an organisation that exists outside the rules of law.
This, of course, is the Mafia and Lombardi’s novel The Godfather Connection knows a lot about the Mafia’s relationship with Las Vegas. A place where the rules are suspended and everything has a price as Lombardi tells his story with strong pacing and a wealth of little details that feel just right.
At under one hundred pages, The Godfather Connection is in novella territory and a quick read with Lombardi shunning excessive detail in favour of crisp prose and authentic dialogue that imbues his characters with a real sense of presence. To immerse his readers in a shadowy world where right and wrong is often a matter of perspective.
It’s a hard book to put down and not least because of Lombardi’s knack for creating characters with real gravitas. Gino, Cosmo and Don Vincent are highly memorable and well-conceived but Lombardi still allows them room for growth as events evolve. This creating superb fictional dynamics that make the prevailing sense of intrigue and danger swirling around the edges of their lives even more fascinating.
An instantly engaging read that readily evokes the presence of a bygone era The Godfather Connection proves a must-read for fans of Crime and Family Saga fiction and is strongly recommended!
