He quickly proves to be as ruthless as he tries to discover who has launched a plot to overthrow his rule and may be infiltrating other families. In a left over plot line, his aunt discovers that the young don had her son murdered first setting her off in a plot to kill him. Then when she is stopped she is driven into the arms of a conflicted priest. Meanwhile, an undercover FBI agent moves into the family home as a teacher for the don's handicapped daughter.Written by

If only to see Cross, Gorgio and that psychotic moustachioed hit man of theirs finally get their just deserts! And I do not mean them getting lovely ice-cream with their wine for dinner in that palatial mansion! I mean a burst of machine-gun fire followed by all the sorts of tortures that they have inflicted on so many!
It is so discouraging to see the villains get away with it, even if the villains are the heroes!
