Mario Puzo's The Last Don II | 1997
Don Domenico Clericuzio passes away following the celebration of his 86th birthday, leaving the family vulnerable to rival Mafia families. After the death of his wife Athena, Cross De Lena is pressured to return to the family, but his arrival upsets Rose Marie. Her belief that the family was involved in the death of her son Dante resurfaces and she seeks solace in the church and in the arms of Father Luca Tonarini. Cross falls in love with Josie Cirolia, an FBI agent who infiltrates the family as nurse to Cross' autistic stepdaughter Bethany. He must also contend with problems caused by his sister Claudia and her muscle-bound movie star husband Dirk Van Schulberg. Cross finally assumes the role of Don but finds that his real nemesis is a member of his own family.
