"The year is 1977, and Libano has a plan. After kidnapping the wealthy Baron Rosellini, he uses the ransom money to buy guns for his ultra-violent gang, La Banda della Magliana, fuelling a bloody takeover of drugs racket in Rome and propelling La Bnda deeper into the city's dark underworld. As they commit some of the most brutal crimes in Italy's history, La Banda's influence spreads. But while the money flows and the body count rises, they cannot shake the relentless Commissario Scialoja, or the infighting that threatens to tear them apart" --backcover

Calabria, 1844. Lorenzo de Vallelaura, un joven aristócrata, es capturado por participar en un levantamiento contra la monarquía de los Borbones. Ante él se presenta una deshonrosa disyuntiva: morir o salvar la vida a cambio de cometer traición. Su misión consistirá en espiar a Guiseppe Mazzini, el revolucionario exiliado en Londres tras el fracaso de los levantamientos por él liderados en 1821 y 1832. Lorenzo, un joven educado y atractivo, no tarda en convertirse en mano derecha de Mazzini y a través de él, conocerá un universo que ni siquiera se hubiera atrevido a imaginar: libertarios y revolucionarios; damas de la alta sociedad; pintores como Dante Gabriel Rossetti; burdeles y clubes de caballeros ... El amor, el sexo, el espionaje y los ideales, la política y el crimen se dibujan con precisión en este fresco literario escrito por uno de los mejores autores italianos contemporáneos. -- p.

Chronicle of three Southern Italian youths who, after seeing the fierce Bourbon repression of the uprisings in 1828, swear to devote their lives to the cause of freedom and independence and become affiliated with Giuseppe Mazzini and his La Giovine Italia (Young Italy) movement. They reach Paris, where they come to know the charming Princess Cristina of Belgiojoso, a fervent patriot but also a champion of the rights of women and education for the people. They finally participate in an attempt to assassinate King Carlo Alberto of Savoy and the riots of 1834. The failure of both missions marks a deep crisis in three young patriots, exacerbating class differences between Angelo and Dominic, members of the noble class, and Salvatore, the son of more humble lineage
Cocaine by Massimo Carlotto( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Carlotto's The Campagna Trail, Inspector Campagna uses an old friendship with notorious drug dealer Roby Pizzo in a Machiavellian attempt to keep the peace. But when an interfering new police chief demands Campagna bring down the Mafioso who heads Pizzo's gang, Campagna must use every weapon he has to save his job - and his life. Meanwhile in Carofiglio's The Speed of the Angel, a writer in crisis strikes up an unlikely friendship with a mysterious woman he meets in a quiet seaside cafe. As their conversations deepen, and their obsessions darken, their drug-fuelled relationship begins to spiral, in this haunting tale of damnation and redemption. Finally in De Cataldo's The White Powder Dance, the city police are put on the trail of a baby-faced new graduate in the Milanese banking sector. As the pursuit accelerates through back streets and skyscrapers, it becomes clear that there is more to organised crime than getting your hands dirty
