PoisonvillePaperback - 2009
Once an economic superregion, Italy's industrialized northeast is slowly leaking power as the factories move over the border into cheaper areas. The region's richest families, including the one to which young lawyer Francesco is heir, have turned to violence and crime in order to protect their wealth, and Francesco must decide whether or not to break with the past-- a decision that could kill him.
