Salvatore Drago, a.k.a. "Silent Sam", is a fictional character in The Godfather's Revenge by Mark Winegardner, the sequel to Winegardner's The Godfather Returns.
He plays a supporting role in the novel, in which he is the don of the Tampa, Florida Mafia syndicate. He is also Don of Florida from 1954 onward.
The novel explains that he studied to become a painter in Italy. His father, Vittorio Drago, was the Don of the Florida syndicate. Much like Michael Corleone, Salvatore was initially reluctant to join the "family business", but was compelled to do so to help his father, who was under serious pressure from Commissioner of Sicily Cesare Mori.
In 1954, Sam Drago becomes the don of the Florida syndicate. Under him, there are rarely any arguments between rival Families and peace is maintained through Tampa. He vouches for his old friend Carlo Tramonti.
