In conversation with Mike Neary
Criminologist Federico Varese draws on a lifetime’s research to give us access to some of the world’s most secretive societies. Mafias operate across the globe, with hundreds of thousands of members and billions of pounds in revenue. From Hong Kong to New York, these vast organisations spread their tentacles into politics, finance and everyday life. Mixing reportage with case studies, this is the story of mafia as it really is: filled with boredom and drama, death and disaster, ambition and betrayal.
