'more detail and more gruesome colour than in any previous account. Follain musters this material with great skill into a compelling narrative. At the heart of the book there are two epic battles...an epic of modern police work and Follain brings it vividly to life.' — Independent 'There's something disturbingly gripping about the relentless blood-spilling, feuds and betrayals; men taking life as breezily as if they were lifting a piece off a chessboard.' — Tobias Jones, Mail on Sunday 'Although the story has often been told, Follain brings real suspense to its retelling. His prose is gripping.' — Misha Glenny, The Sunday Times 'A terrific read...John Follain portrays the escalating savagery of Cosa Nostra's most notorious bosses with compelling rigour and verve.' — John Dickie, author of Cosa Nostra 'A scintillating mixture of history, true crime and whodunnit, told both with restrained moral anger and the fascinating insights of the leading expert in his field. This well-researched, hard-hitting book is a fitting epitaph for the courageous Judge Falcone...Compulsively readable' — Andrew Roberts
