In the spring of 2006, what began as a reporter's investigation of Neapolitan organized crime made international news headlines. The vigilante journalist Roberto Saviano compiled the most thorough account to date of the Camorra, the Neapolitan mafia, which exerts a malign influence on contemporary Italy. At great personal risk, Saviano worked undercover in his native city in Camorra-controlled factories, construction sites and even as a waiter at a mob wedding. He recalls seeing his first murder at the age of fourteen, and how his own father, a doctor, suffered a brutal beating for trying to aid an eighteen-year-old victim who had been left for dead in the street.
Unforgettable and utterly compelling, Gomorrah is a nightmare journey into a world of devastating brutality. Now with a new foreword from the author, this book is the classic account of organized crime.
