Michael Corleone is returning to the U.S. after the two-year exile to Sicily in which listeners left him in The Godfather. But he is ordered to bring with him the young Sicilian bandit, Salvatore Guiliano, who is the unofficial ruler of northwestern Sicily. In his fight "to make Sicilians free people", the young folk hero, based on the real-life Giuliano of the 1940s, has made both the police and the Mafia his enemies. So when Don Croce Malo, chief of the Sicilian Mafia, and the policemen who has been tracking Guiliano each offer to help Corleone find the elusive Robin Hood, betrayal seems inevitable.
Mario Puzo has created a sequel to The Godfather that is every bit as compelling and dramatic. But The Sicilian is a distinct literary achievement in its historical inspiration and its vivid portrait of Sicilian peasant life.

A side story
- Jim "The Impatient"
Narration too fast
I am a Mario Puzo fan and have "read" most of his books, I did not especially like the main narrator. It felt like he drank a pot of coffee and just started reading really fast. The character narrators were great however. I even tried to slow down my ipod, but it got weird.
Tore Guilliano of coarse.
Main narrator reads too fast, too little inflection in his voice.
Good book overall and what I expected, other narrators have done a much better job at bringing the characters and story alive with Mario Puzo's stories, I would suggest sampling before purchasing.
