Introduction

Rock Island, Illinois -- 1929. Michael O'Sullivan is a good father and a family man -- and also the chief enforcer for John Looney, the town's Irish Godfather of crime. As Looney's "Angel of Death," O'Sullivan has done the bidding of Chicago gangsters Al Capone and Frank Nitti as well -- but when a gangland execution spells tragedy for the O'Sullivan family, a grieving father and his adolescent son find themselves on a winding road fo treachery, revenge, and revelation. Writer Max Allan Collins is a two-time winner of the Private Eye Writers of America's Shamus Award for his Nathan Keller historical thrillers "True Detective" and "Stolen Away." Award-winning artist Richard Piers Raynner spent four years working on the artwork for "Road to Perdition," a labor of love that has resulted in some of the most stunningly realistic drawings of 1930s Chicago ever seen on printed page.
