Another great book from Michele Guittari. His knowledge of his subject is amazing.
I would recommend this book, and the author, to anyone interested in the workings of the Mafia, and the Italian police

HASH(0x9fb34210) out of 5 stars The Inside Politics of Italian Crime from a True Insider Sept. 25 2011
By Lakeside - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While in Rome a few weeks ago, I had the good fortune of being introduced to Michele Guittari and his novel, A Death in Tuscany. Impressed greatly with his firsthand knowledge of Italian police and crime matters, I purchased The Death of a Mafia Don while I was in the Eternal City. I'm delighted that I did, as this novelist does such a brilliant job of creating an intriguing murder mystery while immersing us in the real-world reality of the police who confront these challenges every day. It certainly didn't hurt that I was able to enjoy this wonderful novel while in Mr. Guittari's backyard. If you enjoy crime, leavened with the presence of a likeable, but multi-dimensional main character, and you want it all set amid the wonders of Italy, you can't go wrong.

HASH(0x9fb34450) out of 5 stars Fantastic twist, solid writing Oct. 1 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the third Michele Guittari book that I've read. He sometimes gets bogged down in police procedure (the first quarter of the book was slow) and the writing is sometimes a bit pedestrian (hard to know if that's the translation though), but he managed to pull off one heck of an amazing twist in this book, and the latter third of the book was a real page-turner. Highly recommend, particularly if you'd like to know more about the Italian police.

HASH(0x9fb345f4) out of 5 stars Very Good, not quite 5 stars June 21 2013
By Kenneth C. Mahieu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"The Death of a Mafia Don" (DMD), 4 1/2 stars, is the third in a series of six books by Italian Michele Giuttari about Michele Ferrara, a Florence based police officer. Ferrara is seriously injured in a car bombing, and while he is recovering, his team investigates the incident and soon discovers a Mafia connection. There is soon another assassination attempt but on another official, and this one is successful bringing more pressure on the team and Ferrara out of the hospital. At this point, the focus shifts to a horde of Mafia characters (you might want to take notes on names and places). The pace and tension are good, and the characters are well drawn, but I must admit it got a bit confusing for me as there were a number of twists and a number of agendas. But I am presuming that was the author's intention - to give the reader a sense of the investigator's frustrations in trying to get a clear picture of events. Then there was a scene that made me think I was watching a clip from the tail end of "The Godfather" (not that there's anything wrong with that, actually it was rather well done). This is my first Giuttari book and I will read others - perhaps books 4, 5, 6 for starters since I've jumped into the middle of the series and know some character history. Close to 5 stars but no cigar.

By Bookwoman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Enjoy Giuttari's writing and have read all of his books. The title always refers to one death as though only one person dies, but when you get into the book, lots of people die. Michael Connelly is my favorite crime author and I consider Giuttari to be the Italian Michael Connelly.
