The Sins of the Fathers chronicles the life and times of Tony Messina, a Sicilian immigrant to the United States. This sweeping narrative takes us from Tony's formative years in the street gangs of Hoboken, New Jersey, a bustling waterfront town in the looming shadow of New York City, to the startling violence and barbarity of the Vietnam conflict. Upon returning home, Tony is swept into the ruthlessly violent world of his family, the Messinas, the ruling Mafia clan of Hudson County, New Jersey. Returning from a war in which he fought as a soldier for his country only to reunite with a family who desires him to act as a soldier in their service, Tony is torn by conflicting pathos of familial duty and a desire for personal redemption. The Sins of the Fathers offers us a look into the inner-circle of a powerful crime family, the corruption, violence, and brutality therein and the story of one man's Odyssey through this blighted human landscape illustrating that redemption is always at hand. 480 page
