Book Description
In the spring of 2006, what began as a reporter`s investigation of Neapolitan organized crime made international news headlines. At great personal risk, the vigilante journalist, Roberto Saviano compiled the most thorough account to date of the Camorra and its chillingly significant role in the global economy. The result, a groundbreaking and utterly compelling book, was a major bestseller in Italy, and Saviano was granted police protection after his life was threatened by the organization, which had hitherto operated in relative obscurity. Known by insiders as `the System`, the Camorra has an international reach and large stakes in construction, high fashion, illicit drugs and toxic-waste disposal. It exerts a malign grip on cities and villages along the Neapolitan coast and is the deciding factor in why Campania has the highest murder rate in all of Europe and why cancer levels there have skyrocketed in recent years.
