Judge Giovanni Falcone, who led the war against the Mafia in Italy, was assassinated with his wife and three bodyguards in a car-bomb explosion in May 1992 - just as he was to be given powers to investigate the organization nationally. Written the previous year, this is his account of the Mafia - a ruthless "state within a state". Falcone was born and grew up in Palermo, nerve-centre of the Sicilian Mafia. From his shared background with many mafiosi, he possessed detailed knowledge of their mentality and methods. He knew, too, that sooner or later he was likely to meet his own death at their hands when his knowledge grew too threatening.
