Aging mafia Don Salvatore Padronelli, a.k.a. the Padre, is furious when fanatical terrorists capture his beloved daughter and grandson on a trip to Egypt. Fed up with diplomatic caution that prolongs their captivity, the Padre and his loyal henchman cleverly insinuate themselves into the White House and hold the President and his wife hostage. Now the Padre calls the shots on getting the President to take steps to release his family. This classic confrontation between two men on utterly opposite sides of the law is laced with humor and illustrates how fierce paternal love can motivate even the most ruthless of gangsters into reckless acts of courage and bravery.

Great Read, Interest in Politics Not Required!

Effective Way To Fight Terror.
I would definitely recommend this book. It has an original story and the narrator performs it well. The story is reminiscent of a combination of John Grisham's and Tom Clancy's style. It is a great action story.
The entire book, from the kidnapping of Maria and Joey to the take over of the White House to all the resulting events, picks you up and keeps you in suspense. The whole book is memorable except the ending. The ending seems like the author just got sick of writing and so he stopped. That is a tiny fraction of the whole book and the rest of it is fabulous.
He has a great voice that plays the political roles very well.
The book is incredibly entertaining. It is not overtly funny or moving. I think it mostly keeps you in suspense like a well-written action story should.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
