PARADISE CITY by Lorenzo Carcaterra - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Lorenzo Carcaterra.

The most exciting achievement to date from the acclaimed author of Sleepers and Gangster, Paradise City is a riveting thriller of two cops and two countries, a stunning crime novel about the roots of revenge, honor, and evil.

As a fifteen-year-old, Giancarlo Lo Manto learned about injustice the hard way. His father was gunned down by the Camorra, the murderous clan run by Don Nicola Rossi. When his mother moved him from New York back to his family's ancestral home in Naples, Gian found himself face-to-face with the source of the mobs strength, the spring that spawned its deadly killers.

Today, twenty-three years later, he is a dogged detective on the Naples police force, homicide division, the most dangerous beat in Europe. He is the nemesis of all who export evil, the man who stops it before it spreads overseas. His efforts have not gone unnoticed. The strength of Naples reinforces the muscle of New York and now the two worlds are about to collide.

In the highest towers of the most expensive streets of New York City, Pete Rossi, the son of Don Nicola, has decided to bring Gian back to America permanently. When Gian learns that his teenage niece, Paula, has gone missing in Manhattan, he cancels a much-needed vacation to Capri, to paradise, joking that one island is just as good as the other.<
