Publisher's Summary

A bomb explodes in the centre of Florence, hitting the car of Chief Superintendent Michele Ferrara of the elite Squadra Mobile. The attack rocks the ancient city to its foundations. Ferrara was clearly the target - and he did, after all, just controversially imprison notorious Mafia boss Salvatore Laprua.
A week later, another bomb explodes - bringing tragedy for Ferrara and a determination to find the culprit. But that same morning, Salvatore Laprua is found dead in his prison cell. So who is the mysterious influence behind the bombings - someone even the Mafia fear?
An ingenious, gripping mystery, The Death of a Mafia Don has been a best seller in Italy and across Europe. Written by former Florence police chief Michele Giuttari, it offers a fascinating insight into the secret world of the Mafia and of life in Florence.

Another excellent police thriller!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Death of a Mafia Don to be better than the print version?

I don't know. I read one of this writer's books and listened to "The Death of a Mafia Don". Enjoyed both very much.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main character because he wasn't 'over the top'. He reacted like a real person. Being that the author was a policeman he also has a good knowledge of police procedure. I live in Italy and have taught English at the Police Headquarters so I have an idea of what is accurate. I have also lived here for 35 years.

What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

Everything! He's about as good as it gets and he never shouts and whispers as some narrators do making listening very difficult while driving the car.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

Yes, will be looking out for more of the same author.
