“All Luca people, all here.”
Vince Luca travels to a film school in Los Angeles believing he has left his
past life of crime behind. But then, his “family” starts showing up. His
brother shows up first, and then his many “uncles”. Thinking that they are
up to no good, he blames them for the mysterious disappearance of one of the
candidates for the upcoming political election. Vince follows the Luca
people to a broken-down warehouse to see what his father’s people are doing.
Inside the warehouse, bullets fly and Vince wonders if he will ever escape
his family’s business. More importantly, he wonders if he will stay alive.
Gordon Korman did a spectacular job of writing Son of the Mob 2. I
recommend children, especially boys from ages eleven to thirteen, read this

an excellent read. More background from the first novel would have helped my
initial confusion but shortly into the story the exciting events captivated
me. I rate Son of the Mob 2 five
