Bad boy of the Veneto Giorgio Pellegrini has been living the quiet life running a restaurant with his beautiful wife after killing and robbing his way to respectability 11 years ago. But now his crooked lawyer is cheating him and serving him up cold to the Mob, and Giorgio doesn’t like it one bit. To get revenge, he’s back to his old tricks- killing, robbing and more killing. This book is the definition of Mediterranean noir, with a character who gives “mad, bad and dangerous to know” a whole new set of wheels.
