Rate this:
In the late 1930s, Rico DiGiacomo ruled all of East Boston until he was brutally murdered by his own lieutenant, Bricks Mancini. That night, Rico's son Giorgio overheard the details as they were reported to the one who ordered it: Rico's wife. Giorgio vowed to avenge his father, no matter how long it took. Now, thirty years later, Giorgio has finally fulfilled that promise. As Mancini's bodyguards pursue him into biker bars and sleazy motels like a pack of vengeful demons, Giorgio recalls a life of humiliation at his mother's hands and the wisdom his father passed on to him. Night of the Furies follows Giorgio's desperate escape, alternating between his present dangers and the events that led up to them, a virtual history of crime in Boston. From the basement lounge of the Coconut Grove to James Michael Curley, from the Great Molasses Flood to the Old Howard, Giorgio has moved in some of the deadliest circles of the city, never forgetting that Fate sent him to kill his own mother. What he doesn't know is that Fate has still more in store for him, and one night can be very long indeed.
