"It was just business, business I tell ya."
―Salvatore Tessio[src]

Following the execution of Marty Malone, another more tragic traitor was discovered in the Corleone crime family namely caporegime Salvatore Tessio, who had made a deal with Emilio Barzini in order to keep the families head above water, fearing it was being driven to destruction by Michael Corleone.

Willie Cicci drove Tessio to the Embassy Club, where Michael would have been ambushed and killed, instead sending the treacherous caporegime forward into the ambush. Tessio escaped and was pursued by Aldo Trapani, who eventually cornered him in the bar and executed him ith regret.

Behind the scenesEdit

In the original version of the game this mission is followed by Baptism of Fire. In all others it is followed by Royal Flush.

This mission contracts both the film and The Godfather Returns, where Tessio was killed after the heads of the Five Families.
