about this item

In the fields of a forgotten post-war Sicily, an obsession with power was growing; Salvatore 'Totò' Riina, the shrewd peasant Corleone, became the boss of bosses and Palermo was conquered, one crime at a time. With his small army of assassins, he seized control of the most formidable mafia in the world and began an attack on the state: bombs, massacres and bloody conflicts initiated by a man who thought he was invincible.Until 1992 and the murders of Falcone and Borsellino. Then Riina was captured after nearly a quarter of a century on the run, an event still shrouded in controversy. Now in prison for over twenty years, Totò Riina remains the dictator of the Cosa Nostra from behind bars. Through the genuine testimony of the Sicilian Corleone, this a tale of desperate poverty, power and bloodshed - and one man's fight to rule supreme.
