The Wolf by Lorenzo Carcaterra July 29th

What happens when members of  a top crime bosses family are murdered in a terror attack?  A man hunt and a revenge plan are quickly formulated and then acted upon.   Vincent Marelli funnels his grief into action yet he must deal with the grief his son faces and it the opposite sides of him that make him such a great character.  He is powerful and revered, yet he buys his son a pretzel from the corner cart and takes him for walks on the beach.  I loved seeing both sides of him and how he changed as he dealt with his grief and moved on with his life.  This is not just a fast paced thriller about a crime lord, it is also the story of a father and a husband and a man trying to put his life back together after a tragedy and be the best he can be.
