3.8/5 Goodreads

Spring of 2008, what began as a reporter's Investigation Neapolitan organized crime made International news headlines. Vigilante journalist Roberto Saviano compiled the most thorough account to date of the Camorra, the Neapolitan malia, which exerts a malign influence on contemporary Haly. At great personal risk, Saviano worked undercover in his native city in Camorra-controlled factories, construction sites and even as a walter 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.

"An extraordinarily powerful book. With its pages of gritty reportage and low-life legwork, Gomorrah recreates a truly evil sense of menace" - Ian Thomson
"Part economic analysis, part social history, part cri de coeur, this crushing testimonial is the most important book to come out of Italy in years... I could not get this brave book out of my head" - Scotsman
