In “The Cudoni Creed: The Dream” (published by Balboa Press), author Phil Cuda’s new novel, readers will discover a tale of passion, fear, wealth and death.
The Cudoni brothers, hoping to achieve fame, fortune, adventure and true love, leave Italy and head to the United States in 1898. Once in America, they hope to start a new, fresh life; one away from the gangs and corruption of Italy. But, they never expected the demons of their past to find them.
As the brothers begin to live out a peaceful, prosperous life, they run into the Cosa Nostra, an extension of the Sicilian Mafia. Vowing to never pay, the brothers find themselves in a whole new world of trouble.
As each brother goes through his own trials and tribulations, readers witness the struggles many immigrants went through in the new world. A mix of fact and fiction, “The Cudoni Creed” breathes life into an old tale, the tale of life.
An excerpt from “The Cudoni Creed”:
“‘There—there he is. The fire of hell be on the rotten devil. He’s just stolen another one—and in the middle of the day as well,’ a tall but lean young man angrily and excitedly exclaimed to his older brother as he pointed from where he stood on the small hillock on the mountain. The older brother had already jumped to his feet and grabbed the new shotgun he had left leaning against a large rock. Hurriedly planting one foot firmly on the rock in front of him, he took quick but careful aim. A look of anger and determination came across his face. You’re going to die this time, you rotten thief, he thought as he pulled the trigger on the shotgun his father had given him a few weeks earlier.”
