ROAD TO PERDITION: THE NEW, EXPANDED EDITION
First there was Collins’ legendary graphic novel…then came the Academy Award winning movie and his bestselling screenplay novelization. Now Collins presents an epic new novel, combining and expanding upon all that came before, to create the ultimate version of his unforgettable story.
Depression-era Chicago is awash in liquor and blood, ruled by guns, graft, and gangsters like John Looney. His most feared enforcer is Michael O’Sullivan, known as the “Angel of Death.” But when O’Sullivan’s twelve-year-old son witnesses a gangland murder committed by Looney’s brutal son, O’Sullivan’s entire family is marked for execution to cover up the crime. O’Sullivan and his son find themselves on the run… and seeking vengeance… on the long, bloody road to Perdition.
ROAD TO PURGATORY
Twenty-two year-old Michael O’Sullivan returns from the second World War with a medal of honor, a glass eye, and the violent skills necessary to avenge his family, who were gunned down by the Chicago mob when he was a child. O’Sullivan becomes mobster Frank Nitti’s trusted chauffer…and an undercover operative for federal agent Eliot Ness…but even as he seeks revenge, he finds himself being seduced by the criminal underworld that he loathes.
“PURGATORY succeeds in putting us inside the head of an honorable man descending into a hell of his own creation,” Entertainment Weekly
“An explosive, action-packed blockbuster, destined to rank right up there with THE GODFATHER series when all is said and done.” Detroit Free Press
“A cordite-drenched Shakespearean tragedy.” Kirkus Reviews
