Within a period of one hundred years, the Mafia in the United States has undergone change. The Western Mafia is a coalition of several Families and is identified as having moved into legitimate gambling and entrepreneurships. The Eastern Mafia coalition operates on the old values of Omerta. Listening to stories of Mafia activities, the author heard from a casino executive about his interest in the huge reserves of oil under the desert of a country called Turkmenistan. This led to a novel about the Eastern and Western Families—the Eastern Mafia wanting to drill for oil with no regard for the people or heritage of the region. Written in the rich tradition of The Reluctant Godfather and Rogue Warriors, Dr. Trione’s third novel will keep you on the edge of your seat.
