    Jack Nicholson has just realised that his girlfriend is a contract killer who's made fifty hitsWell says Kathleen Turner defensively it's not so many when you consider the size of the population

  2. RJ from the LBC RJ from the LBC says:

    Author Richard Condon is probably best known for his cold war thriller The Manchurian Candidate but he is eually at home in this dark comedy about love between a female hired assassin and a mafioso hit man The tangled plot is amusing as are the Romeo and Juliet ruminations about the difficulties of star crossed love but the real focus here is the characters particularly Sicilian hit man Charley Partanna and his cronies who are a never ending source of amusement About the movie version venerated critic Pauline Kael once wrote It's like The Godfather acted out by The Munsters

    I read this years ago one other book but I think it was the last one It recently came up in a group I found I no longer had it so I went to AbeBooks got the entire trilogy in paperback delivered for less than 10 Couldn't resistIt was great on a reread Condon's characters just pop with images of Jack Nicholson Kathleen Turner Robert Loggia Anjelica Huston dancing through the story it was perfect The characters are overblown teetering between caricatures real people The situation is twisty both understandable ludicrous I was both laughing at them rooting for them both sides either neither? throughout but always totally engaged Definitely a classicPrizzi's Family comes before chronologically is spoiled by this one It's pretty over the top If you have the trilogy really plan on reading all 3 I'd suggest starting with 'Family' then reading this one although it isn't nearly as good though The 'last' of the trilogy Prizzi's Glory isn't either This is the first best A 4th book was added 5 or 6 years later Prizzi's Money I haven't read it don't plan on itOriginal review 4 stars It's been years since I read this about Y2K but I really liked it Loved the movie too

  4. Hank Quense Hank Quense says:

    I read this one before bit it's worth while reading twice A great book by a great author This Condon's first and best book about the Prizzi's a powerful mob of gangsters in Brooklyn NY The main character and the mob's enforcer is Charley Partanna Charley attends a wedding and falls in love with a women who also attends Charley doesn't know she is a freelance shooter who has a contract in New York to hit and old gangster normally Charley's responsibility

  5. DeAnna Knippling DeAnna Knippling says:

    Mafia hit man in love Not as sharp and delightful as The Manchurian Candidate but a solid read Playful ironic brutal and classic very nearly a satirical retelling of Romeo and JulietRecommended for Mafiagang story fans in a slightly unrealistic vein as well as people who like a larger than life romantic drama

  6. David Wrubel David Wrubel says:

    After 'The Godfather and before 'The Sopranos' there were the Prizzis the extended first family of fictional organized crime Both Prizzi's Honor and Prizzi's Glory are wildly entertaining satires that I am always sad finish and always wish there were one to readAnother case where the books are better than the movie good as it was

  7. Elizabeth Elizabeth says:

    If you like your Mafia on the light side this series is for you It has a good feel of authenticity plenty of insider details and just enough blood But fun

  8. Terri Weitze Terri Weitze says:

    I have never seen the movie but I can tell you the book is terrific Another WOW Two people fall in love one cares about money above all things the other cares about family above all things; but they have one thing in common they kill people A story all about relationships and how crazy they can be Funny sweet sad and lots and lots of action Richard Condon is now one of my all time favorite authors

  9. Jack Alexander Jack Alexander says:

    If you love mafia this is one you The story is tight fast moving and in the end surprising There is great irony in the title If you look at what I have read in the last two years it is way over weighted with stuff written in the last 2 3 years It was fun reading a book where people smoked used telephone books carried guns on airplanes and did not worry about DNA

  10. Mike Gunderloy Mike Gunderloy says:

    Kind of like The Godfather meets slapstick Condon may be an acuired taste but I acuired it long ago If you don't know his work this isn't the right starting point try MONEY IS LOVE for the bizarre side or THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE for the plotting Great fun in any case
