"The year is 1978, and a chilling drama is unfolding in Rome. Members of a leftist terrorist group known as the Red Brigades have kidnapped the former Italian prime minister, Aldo Moro, and are holding him in a secret prison while broadcasting their demands to the public. Far from Rome, in Palermo, Sicily, a trio of eleven-year-old schoolboys are following Moro's abduction with intense interest. To their minds, the terrorists are warriors, striking a blow at the stifling conformity and propriety of everyday Italian life"--P. [4] of cover

I am the market : how to smuggle cocaine by the ton and live happily by Luca Rastello ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the story of ordinary, respectable men, who behind the scenes have managed to rise to the peak of the international narcotics trade. It is not the story of those who swallow capsules or transport drugs in suitcases with false bottoms, but those who smuggle cocaine in cargo shipments, in containers, in vast quantities at a time. I Am the Market is told in the form of five frank lessons in mass smuggling by a convicted smuggler. On an ironic level these five lessons are presented as a complete course in how to become a consummate cocaine trafficker; on a more serious level they provide an account of the phenomenon and a deep analysis of developments in the cocaine economy over the last thirty years or so

In the hottest summer of the twentieth century, in a down-at-the-heels hamlet in rural Italy, six children take to their bikes across the scorched countryside. When they arrive at an abandoned farmhouse, one of them, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano, discovers what appears to be the body of a boy his own age. He is too frightened to tell his friends, and his father refuses to listen. When he returns to the site and discovers that the boy is weak but alive, he brings the boy food and water, and learns the terrifying tale of a kidnapping. Told through the eyes of Michele, the story follows his efforts to draw upon his own humanity as the adults around him reveal their increasingly compromised choices
