9781434334268: The Grandfather Clause

THE GRANDSON OF MAFIA CRIME BOSS VITO GENOVESEMAKES A REMARKABLE DEBUT IN THIS SUSPENSEFUL THRILLER. A NOVEL ONLY HE COULD WRITE. It's March of 1963 in a quiet New Jersey shore community. Joseph Napolo is a young boy who cherishes his Pop Pop Carmine's Sunday visits to his parent's home. Joseph has come to understand that there is something special about his grandfather - the stories he tells, his friends that visit after dinner, how they kiss his ring and call him Don Carmine. This Sunday, however, Joseph is the sole witness to sinister and dramatic events. Young Joseph and his grandfather pledge to keep a dark secret.Over time, Joseph learns his grandfather had been the boss of a New York crime family - one that the media continues to illuminate as the most powerful Mafia organization in the country. Joseph has shunned his grandfather's ways but he will forever share the Family name. He understands that fame is fickle and fleeting. Infamy is not.Now Spring 2001, Joseph is a husband, father, and with his best friend, Michael Cogan, co-owner of a successful trucking company. However, trouble with the Teamsters Union, Cogan's gambling debts, and a hijacking that is more than it appears to be, create a scenario where the past and the present reconvene.During this one week in May, these ostensibly unconnected events toss together several nefarious entities. Teamster officials, a high-tech defense contractor, the Napolo Crime Family, and an ex-US intelligence operative collude and collide, taking Joseph on a wild ride, racing toward a Friday deadline. Reluctantly, Joseph must penetrate his grandfather's world to protect his own family and to save his friend, only to find himself a key player in a conspiracy that redefines patriotism and his grandfather's role in history.

About the Author:

Philip A. Genovese, Jr. was born in Newark, New Jersey. He was raised on the Jersey Shore and attended Villanova University where he earned a Bachelor's degree in English Literature. He is the grandson of Vito Genovese, the namesake and former Boss of one of the five New York Mafia Families. Mr. Genovese is working on his next novel, The Termination Clause. Mr. Genovese grew up in a small town founded in the 1600's. In the summer, his neighborhood basked in stippled sunlight filtered through towering elms, expansive Maples, and stately Sycamores. Weekends in the fall, he and his brothers would help his father rake their fallen leaves to the curb and burn the piles. This was before burning leaves and smoking cigarettes and cars with metal dashboards and no seatbelts were hazardous to our health. These were the years of air raid drills and fall-out shelters, and American Flyers and PF Flyers, and all afternoon games of Combat that began with odds-evens shootouts for the right to be Sgt. Saunders or Kirby or Little John, the big guy with the BAR. These were also the years that his paternal grandfather, Vito, came for dinner on Sundays. After he hadn't come for a while, he was told his Pop Pop had "gone away on business". In 1961 his grandfather had gone to federal prison, where eight years later he died. About the time Jack Kennedy was assassinated, Dutch Elm Disease claimed all the soldierly elms on his street. A few years later, the Sycamores fell, too. Mr. Genovese misses the smell of burning leaves in the fall, the taste of honeysuckle in the late spring, good friends gone, and on the occasional Sunday afternoon, all his grandparents.
