The Mafia Priness Diaries
Publisher's Summary. Angelina Merrezzi grew up with many things, but a safe, normal childhood was not one of them. As the only child of Angelo Merrezzi, head of the Merrezzi 5000 syndicate, she has lived through enough danger and excitement in her 18 years to fill a book. And her latest experience is providing her an opportunity to do just that. For reasons not immediately known to her, Angelina finds herself kidnapped. The culprit is PAG-the crime family of Juliani Paglia and the chief rival to Merrezzi 5000. Given a notebook and pen by her captors in hopes that she will record important information from her father, the ever-rebellious Angelina instead begins to record a diary. Through these entries Angelina is able to vent about her current situation while recanting memories that have led her to this point in life.The ever defiant Angelina tells her captors nothing, but tells her diary everything.
Review. Angelina Merrezzi, the only child of mob leader Angelo Merrezzi, has been kidnapped by a rival mob faction who hope to extract valuable information from her father. The entire novella takes place during Angelina’s captivity. While Angelina waits to be rescued she reflects on her life by writing in a secret diary.
Eighteen year old Angelina’s musings are no ordinary diary fodder: illicit sex, backstabbing partners; and murder, are the subjects of her diary. She has been both doted upon and ignored by her mob leader father. In return she both adores her father while at the same time acknowledging the heinous crimes he has committed. She has lived life in the proverbial fast lane and has the stories and scars to share. As Angelina confesses, “I’ve had the best given to me and I’ve had the best taken away.”
The Mafia Princess Diaries is an exciting glimpse into the criminal underworld known as the mob!
