Publisher's Summary

In Brooklyn, before the murders, before the miracle, before the 1940s were gone forever, there was a tree. If only they let that tree alone. If that sycamore tree had been allowed to stand, then maybe Biaggio Falcone never would have been the head of the Campigotto crime family. Perhaps little Joey Salerno would not have been born like that. Joey's father, Sal - just home from World War II - probably would never have gotten involved with the New York underworld, and his wife Mary wouldn't have spent her entire life caring for an eternal child. There may have been no reason, four decades later, for that desperate pilgrimage to Lourdes, France. And no need for anyone to call upon the one known only as The Diabolist. Experience the richness of a story that spans half a century. Love and hatred. Devotion and betrayal. Murder and miracles. If only they let that tree alone.

Critic Reviews

"This is a very visual novel and the attention to detail is so rich that I could smell the dirty water dogs from the NYC street vendors. Bravo!" (Romeo Tirone, Director of True Blood, Dexter, and Red Widow)
"Daniel O'Connor's Sons of the Pope reveals an interesting new talent with a snappy style. This is someone's career to watch." (Andrew Neiderman, author of The Devil's Advocate and several V.C. Andrews novels)
"A rich, epic chronicle of murder, the mob, and miracles...". (Kevin O'Brien, NY Times best-selling author)
