Product Overview

Poisonville is a noir thriller par excellence?there?s murder, moral ambiguity, and a protagonist less than heroic. In this #1 bestselling noir novel, however, the killer is not an individual but an entire system.

The heavily industrialized northeast, Italy?s richest region, is undergoing dramatic change. It once drove the nation?s economic boom, a regional superpower, affluent and arrogant, a land that abided only its own rules. But then the factory owners began moving their operations east, across the border to former soviet countries where labor was cheap and regulatory bodies absent. With the factories, the jobs, and the riches gone, new elements began insinuating themselves into the old system, and the Brahmin families of the northeast began employing increasingly violent methods to protect their status and their wealth. Once renowned for its economic might, the region is now infested by organized crime, trafficking of every commodity, including human, ranks of media personalities and politicians on the payrolls of rich families and mobsters, and an ongoing environmental catastrophe.

Welcome to Poisonville! Here, the young lawyer Francesco, heir to the region?s second richest family, will have to decide between business as usual or a violent rupture with the ways of the past. The wrong choice could cost him his life.
