9780141009742: The Road to Perdition

The basis for the major motion picture, ROAD TO PERDITION is an enthralling crime noir story of revenge, morality and family loyalty. Michael OSullivan is a deeply religious family man who works as an Irish mob familys chief enforcer. But after his elder son witnesses one of his fathers hits, the godfather orders the death of OSullivans entire family. Barely surviving an encounter that takes his wife and younger son, OSullivan and his remaining child embark on a dark and violent mission of retribution against his former boss. Featuring accurate portrayals of Al Capone, Frank Nitti and Eliot Ness, this book offers a poignant look at the relationship between a morally-conflicted father and his adolescent son who both fears and worships him.

About the Author:

Max Allan Collins is the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Private Eye Writers of America, and the author of many books, including Road to Perdition, which became the Oscar winning film, and the Quarry novels, the basis for the hit TV series on Cinemax

From The Washington Post:

Readers can be forgiven if they believe there’s nothing more to be done with “Road to Perdition,” the murderous tale of a mob kingpin, his favored hit man and the lengths each was willing to go to protect his son. After all, we’ve already seen three treatments of this gritty noir story. First there was the 1998 graphic novel written by Max Allan Collins with art by Richard Piers Rayner. Next came the 2002 Sam Mendes-directed film starring Tom Hanks and Paul Newman. And then came Collins’ novelization of the movie. But it turns out the publisher of the novelization chopped about 30,000 words from Collins’ text to keep it from straying from the film version. Now Brash Books, a publishing house founded by novelists Lee Goldberg and Joel Goldman, has restored the missing text and released the novel as Collins intended it. The result is a richer and more satisfying version of the tale, one that combines the swift pace of the graphic novel with the well-developed father-son relationships of Mendes’ movie — and that includes both additional hard-boiled dialogue and more historical context for the Depression-era story set in Al Capone’s Illinois. And Collins’ writing, always crisp and vividly visual, is at its best here in “Road to Perdition: The New, Expanded Novel.”
