Son of the Mob

If I had to change my name to anything else it would be to Vincent Luca. This is the name of the Son of the Mob. This was the second book of the series about the son of the mob that I read. Vincent is the first Luca to graduate from high school and make it to college. When he gets there he hopes he will be mafia-free, because he does not like his other option, actually joining the mob. Within Vincent's first week at college his brother Tommy shows up at his dorm and ends up staying for a while. Throughout the other quarter of the book, Vincent's "uncles", men who work under Vincent's father, start showing up at his dorm with his mother's homemade food. The "uncles" say that they are there to go sightseeing, but Vincent has other suspicions. Ironically Vincent's college roommate is the son of a Congressman. He has a knack for the "five finger discount". Vincent's roommate finds out about the mob connection, Vincent therefore wants his roommate to stay far away from hid "uncles" in case he has any ideas about joining the mob. This is my favorite part of the book It turns out that Tommy is only in town to find ways to scam money. The "uncles" are only there so they can cause riots at all of the Congressman's speeches. Vincent's roommate goes out and steals a car, at the same Vincent finds out that his own father is in town, and mysteriously someone important goes missing. To add up to a great grand finale, Vincent and his roommate both follow their fathers coincidentally at the same time. It turns out they are all headed to the same place, the same place the missing person is being held. The question now is whose the good guy and whose the bad guy??? This book was well written and well put together. The author did a good job of piecing together the facts. He alluded, very well I might add, to what it would be like in the mob. It was the kind of book that you felt like you were a part of. It really felt like you knew what Vincent was going through. I would definately reccomend this book to anyone interested in an action packed novel.

Book Review of Son of the Mob Hollywood Hustle

What would someone do if they thought they were finally away from the mob but then it suddenly came back into their life? Vince Luca faced this in the fantastic book Son of the Mob Hollywood Hustle by Gordon Karman. At first Vince goes off to college happy to get away from the mob which is his father's business. His roommate, Trey, is the son of a congressman. As things go on Vince's relationship with his girlfriend, Kendra goes down hill and he gets mixed up with an evil scheme. There are multiple things that I loved about this book. First, I enjoyed the plot because it always kept me hooked and I always wanted to know what would happen next. This is shown when Trey steals something and gets caught. When he got caught I wanted to know what would happen to him. Another thing I liked about this book was the theme. The theme teaches people that just because someone looks and acts good around the public does not mean that they don't do bad things and vice versa. Finally, I loved the character development. For example, Trey hated his dad and what he did at the beginning but Trey matures and learns that he actually loves his dad and will help him no matter what. This book would be appropriate for teens because it has lots of action and suspense and different relationships. I enjoyed Son of the Mob Hollywood Hustle by Gordon Karman and I hope other people do too.

The son of the mob is the second bnook in the series of son of the mob books. The book is about a high school graduate named vince luka that is going to collage in hollywood to learn how to be a film director but this isnt just any ordinary kid he is the son of a mob boss in New York city. When vince gets to collage his roomate is the son of a fomouse congresman that is running for governer, talk about two different worlds. Everything is going ok until some of vinces fathers cronies show up for a little vacation but vince knows better than that and soon enough the congressmans opponent is kidnapped. I think this is a great book because it always kept me on my toes and it has a great surprise ending.

Trying to escape his Long Island mob-boss father...

Trying to escape his Long Island mob-boss father and family, 18-year-old Vince Luca attends a college in Santa Monica, California; however, when his brother and several "uncles" suddenly appear, Vince quickly discovers that they are not tourists. (M/H) (RR) Hilarious, laugh-aloud sequel to THE SON OF THE MOB, which is filled with unexpected twists!

Son of the Mob 2: Hollywood Hustle

When last we saw Vince Luca, things were looking up for him. He had the girl (despite the fact that he's the son of a mob boss, and Kendra's the daughter of the FBI agent sworn to track his father down--and that they bonded over catching lice at the same party.) Vince has never wanted anything to do with the family's... er.. vending machine business, and is on his way to film school in L.A.--as far across the country as he can get from his family in New York. What could go wrong? Well, his roomate is the son of a congressman. And a kleptomaniac. Kendra spends all her time working with his upstairs neighbour on HIS film project, a biblical comedy. Then not only his brother, but his many "uncles" all show up on his doorstep bearing his mother's home-made pasta, and Vince doesn't believe for a minute that they're just sight-seeing. (Mobsters... in sombreros... making margaritas with his roomate's purloined blender... sure...) Though the circumstances are absurd and occasionally improbable (which really, is half the fun), the underlying story of relationships between fathers and sons rings true. There is much confusion, all sorts of disparate and bizarre plot points fall together, and hilarity ensues.
