Reprint. Originally published: London: Heinemann, 2000.

Omerta, the Sicilian code of silence, has been the cornerstone of the Mafia's sense of honour for centuries.

Born in the Sicilian hills, omerta carried the Mafia through a hundred years of change, but now at the century's end it is becoming a relic from a bygone age.

Honour may be silent - but money talks. New York - a mob boss is assassinated. His nephew Astorre Viola and the head of the city's FBI both launch investigations into the murder.

But this time silence spreads like a contagion: the silence of rival gangs, the silence of crooked bankers, even the silence of the courts.

The world of the Mafia is riven with greed, and Viola knows that now is the time to claim his destiny...
