Reprint. This ed. originally published: London: Collins, 1964.

the best book on the Mafia in Sicily - its origins, its code of honour, its secrecy and its brutality.

A chilling insight. - reveals how Mafia violence and corruption crept even into every aspect of Sicilian society, including the police and the church - and how this was only possible with the help of the American army, who gave the Mafia, by then all but destroyed by the Fascist government, the kiss of life when they occupied the island in 1943 - the perfect companion for any traveller to Sicily, and a gripping armchair read
