Benedict Anthony Lister returns to his father's country, Sicily, where his old man had been eliminated and where he had been left a legacy--a strongbox up in the hills. Several elder statesmen of the Mafia warn him away while a girl of the streets safeguards him but cannot deflect his final decision. . . . A soft-toned vendetta godfathered by birthright, blood money and blind courage and as easily read as it was no doubt written.
