Omerta refers to honor in the Sicilian language. This last book by the late Puzo deals one last time with Mafia killers and the code they live by. It's a bloody path for Astoree, the nephew of the murdered Don Aprile. Astoree has promised to protect the old Don's children, which he does as he helps clean out the old Mafia legends and creates a new life for himself and the family. This is the usual study that only Puzo could present to us which is an deep plot of power and how it corrupts.
