LoveReading View on A Death in Calabria

Chief Superintendent Michele Ferrara works for the Anti-Mafia Investigation Department (not unlike Giuttari himself who ran the Florence Police Force until 2003) and his cases take him all over Italy. The series has taken him so far to Florence and Tuscany and offers a realist view of Italy today and its attendant political and criminal problems. Now in Calabria, Ferrara confronts the dreaded Camorra.

A Death in Calabria Synopsis

One of the wildest and most beautiful regions in Italy, known for its rugged coastline and mountains, Calabria is also home to the deadly 'Ndrangheta. An organised Mafia crime operation more feared in Italy than the Cosa Nostra or the Camorra, it is shrouded in mystery. Chief Superintendent Michele Ferrara of Italy's elite Anti-Mafia Investigation Department is tasked with investigating the deaths of several Calabria citizens - some in New York, some in the small, isolated villages that dot the Calabrian countryside. To get to the bottom of the case, Ferrara has to infiltrate the village of San Piero d'Aspromonte, deep in the Calabrian mountains. And there, he must put his life on the line to learn more about a family at the centre of an ancient, bloody feud...
