As a fifteen-year-old, Giancarlo Lo Manto learned about injustice the hard way. His father was gunned down by the Camorra, the murderous clan run by Don Nicola Rossi. When his mother moved him back to his family’s ancestral home in Naples, Gian found himself face-to-face with the source of the mob’s strength, the spring that spawned it’s deadly killers. Today, twenty-three years later, he is a dogged detective on the Naples police force, homicide division, the most dangerous beat in Europe. He is the nemesis of all who export evil, the man who stops it before it spreads overseas. His efforts have not gone unnoticed. "The strength of Naples reinforces the muscle of New York" – and now the two worlds are about to collide. In the highest towers of the most expensive streets of New York City, Pete Rossi, the son of Don Nicola, has decided to bring Gian back to America – permanently. When Gian learns his teenage niece, Paula, has gone missing in Manhattan, he cancels his much-needed vacation to Capri, to paradise, joking that “one island is just as good as the other.” Gian’s homecoming will be anything but smooth. Someone must always watch his back, and Detective Jennifer Fabini gets the job. A gifted officer with her own personal demons, Jennifer thinks she will be dealing with a peasant from the old country. The handsome, reserved, unrelenting Gian is a revelation: an irritant and a temptation – especially for a woman who has sworn off cops as lovers. Together the two must solve a disappearance that appears to be a kidnapping…but turns out to be a deadly trap. As they dash from the sun-struck villages of Italy to the darkest drug dens of New York, their journey links old-world honor and modern-day danger and ends in a dizzying explosion of the present and the past. Paradise City is Lorenzo Carcaterra’s richest entertainment to date, a book that is at once a sensational crime novel and a provocative exploration of his trademark themes: violence and innocence, love and revenge.

    " Kind of a cheesy ending. The last few chapters got pretty intense. "

    " Have read all of Lorenzo`s books except the latest one and have to admit that this one is my favourite of his although Street Boys comes a very close second "

    " loved it - very fast pace!! hard to put down and loving especially that it plays in two cities: Naples and New York. Great to hear and learn so much about the Camorra! "

    " I got bored of the writing at least half way through and ended up skipping parts of paragraphs because it didn't add any value but the overall story is ok. "
