A novel about greed, mistrust, power and prejudice in a city of extreme social and economic differences: a perfect storm.
The sudden and vertiginous decline of a privately-owned luxury watch company in Italy plunges family members into a spiral of ungovernable chaos. When Ruggero Trovato mysteriously disappears, his eldest son Pietro scrambles to cover his father’s debts: millions in back taxes. On that very day, he vents his anger on a young black girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. Angry workers are up in arms demanding justice.
Corruption, greed, betrayal, violence, racism. How far will a family go to save themselves?
