GOMORRAH does for the Italian Mafia what THE GODFATHER and THE SOPRANOS did for American organized crime. But GOMORRAH is real. Investigative reporter Roberto Saviano, a lifelong native of Naples, reveals the criminal underbelly of his city in frightening detail. Michael Kramer narrates with a steady technique. His calm approach to the material, much like that of an unflappable news anchor, magnifies the horror of the incidents being related. Whether Kramer is recounting the tamer portions about the fake-fashion underworld or relating the more graphic sections that deal with torture and murder, he is our anchor. What's more surprising is that the book was published at all, since Saviano names names. No wonder he's been under police protection. M.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
