• Élu pape en 1492 sous le nom d'Alexandre IV, Rodrigo Borgia fut l'une des plus extraordinaires fripouilles de son époque.
    Avant de servir Dieu, le nouveau souverain pontife cherche d'abord à servir les siens, à commencer par ses enfants, Juan, César, Geoffroi et Lucrèce.
    Mais sa position dominante et son népotisme vont susciter des jalousies, qui bientôt deviennent meurtrières. En cette Italie de la Renaissance, intrigues, complots et empoisonnements ne sont pas de vains mots !
    À la mort de Rodrigo, l'ennemi de la famille, le Cardinal della Rovere lui succède. Et c'est tout le clan Borgia qui se trouve en danger.
    César, qui inspirera à Machiavel le personnage du Prince, se réfugie à Naples avant de fuir en Espagne, où il sera fait prisonnier. Mais, bien décidé à retrouver le statut qui était le sien, il s'évade et ourdit sa vengeance. Don Corleone n'avait rien inventé ! Première édition : l'Archipel, 2002.

    • 6 Novembre 1996

    Vingt-six ans après Le Parrain, une grande histoire de famille, d'honneur et de vengeance par Mario Puzo, au sommet de son art.


    Don Domenico Clericuzio, le patriarche du plus puissant clan mafieux américain, l'a compris : le crime organisé est devenu trop dangereux; l'avenir des siens, de ses petits-enfants surtout, réside désormais à Wall Street, dans les casinos du Nevada, à La Mecque du cinéma où l'argent facile et les fortunes rapides s'apparentent à la légalité.


    Il suffira cependant que les anciennes rivalités de pouvoir resurgissent pour que le plan minutieusement préparé par Don Domenico soit menacé. Pourra-t-il empêcher le bain de sang alors qu'une guerre fratricide oppose ses descendants ? Car tuer est encore ce que savent faire le mieux les Clericuzio...


    De l'enclave du Bronx aux folies d'Hollywood, en passant parles palaces de Las Vegas, Mario Puzo dresse avec force et humour un portrait sans égal de l'Amérique, de ses mythes, de ses tentations, mais aussi de ses valeurs. Une grande légende familiale comme n'en avait plus lu depuis celle des Corleone.


    Mario Puzo est l'auteur de six romans dont Le Parrain, Le Sicilien, C'est idiot de mourir et Le Quatrième K., tous les best-sellers mondiaux. Il est également l'auteur de plusieurs scénarios pour le cinéma, parmi lesquels Superman et la trilogie du Parrain pour laquelle il a reçu deux oscars.
