The Savage Shore Summary

The Savage Shore by David Hewson

'A tense, thrilling and atmospheric read that kept me utterly gripped' SIMON KERNICK

'Hewson . . . saves you the airfare to Italy. When you turn the last page, you'll think you've been there' LINWOOD BARCLAY

The 'Ndrangheta is a ruthless mafia organisation, one of the richest and most powerful organised crime groups in the world. Completely impenetrable to outsiders, merciless when crossed, they run the savage Calabrian coast of Italy, their influence everywhere. So why has the head of this feared mob, Lo Spettro, offered to turn state witness?

Detective Nic Costa is sent deep into the mountains to infiltrate this mafia family, with Lo Spettro's help. With a new identity, Nic becomes one of their own. But one slip-up would mean the end not just for the investigation, but for Nic, and his whole team.
