Little Anthony Vallo grew up fast in Manhattan. He and his younger brother and cousin did many unscrupulous things to achieve wealth. As the years passed, he and his family grew, not only in number but in power and prestige. In the twilight of his life, he passed on the title of Godfather to his nephew. The nephew at first had great trepidation about this honor but finally accepted because he knew he could do great things with this enormous power. The Godfather had connections all over the world. He treated everyone with respect, and they grew to love him because they knew he was a man of his word. The newly appointed Godfather convinced all the other bosses in other states to change their ways of thinking. The economy was struggling all over the world, and he implemented many ideas to get people back to work. He truly believed he was chosen to finally bring peace to the world. He was right.About the Author
