In an apartment on the nineteenth floor of a Madison Avenue skyscraper, six people have been slaughtered. Among the victims is the owner of the apartment: Rocco Fedeli, a Calabrian from San Pietro d'Aspromonte, a man with no criminal record, an ordinary citizen, one of the many immigrants who has made his fortune in America. But the investigation begins to suggest that the murders - or rather the executions - are linked to the drugs and the Calabrian Mafia - the 'Ndrangheta. So when the FBI asks the Italian police for cooperation, Chief Superintendent Michele Ferrara, now of the Anti-Mafia Investigation Department, comes into the picture. After his many years of service in Calabria, the 'Ndrangheta holds no secrets for Ferrara. But he must come up against Angela Fedeli, Rocco's sister, an unusually cold, self-controlled woman, who is ready to assume a leading role when a betrayal threatens to shatter her world to pieces...
