Author's 19th novel. Charley Partana: sottocapo and enforcer of the largest Mafia family in the United States - the Prizzis.Irene Walker: beautiful ex-prostitute turned professional killer.Two brutal murderers,two ruthless powerseekers,who fall desperately and hopelessly in love. But their passionate affair is doomed to tragedy by the nature of their trade - and by the exacting demands of Prizzi honour.In his dramatic and moving new novel,Richard Condon,author of 'The Manchurian Candidate','Mile High' and 'Winter Kills',sets this powerful love affair against an intricate web of violence and intrigue.He vividly illustrates the extraordinary influence of the Mafia in every part of American commercial and political life,and conveys with subtlety the strange mixture of brutality and tenderness on which Mafia society is based - a society in which worship of money is more important than life itself.The malevolent immensity of the feuding families' interests, the depth of passion that exists between Charley and Irene,and the tragic outcome of their love,makes 'Prizzi's Honour' truly a modern-day 'Romeo and Juliet'. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering its weight allowances,dimensions and lowered its qualifying compensation rates too! So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk ,because of the lighter weight of this item,for correct shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!
