Prizzi Synopsis: Prizzi’s Honor by Richard Condon is not an ordinary boy-meets-girl story. Charley Partanna is a loyal hitman for the Prizzis, New York’s most powerful Mafia family. The object of his affections is Irene Walker, a Los Angeles-based tax consultant. But it’s her freelancing that pays – she’s a hitwoman for the Mob. She has also cheated the Prizzis out of a sum too large to forgive. This is very dangerous moonlighting indeed, and eventually it places Charley’s oldest loyalties in conflict with his newest one. Which wins out?
