Suburra

(2017)
A novel by

 
In Ostia, a depressed coastal settlement twenty miles from the powerful and corrupt city of Rome, a mighty local crime family, the Mafia, corrupt
politicians, and new rabid criminal elements battle each other for a billion-dollar payoff.

Suburra
will be released as a Netflix original series in 2017.

During the final days of Silvio Berlusconi's reign, a massive development
proposal that will turn Ostia into a gambling paradise, a Las Vegas on the
Mediterranean, is winding its way through the Italian legislature thanks to the sponsorship of politicians in the pay of crime syndicates with vested interests. In short, it's business as usual in the Italian capital. But a vicious gang of local thugs loyal to nobody but themselves is insisting on a bigger cut than agreed upon. They argue their case quite convincingly, but the Mafia and their political puppets aren't likely to back down without a fight.

De Cataldo and Bonini have created a compelling, provocative portrait of
contemporary Rome--a city prey to pitiless criminal factions and political
opportunism. A fast-paced and atmospheric work of crime fiction, Suburra rivals the best novels by writers such as Denis Lehane, Richard Price, and George Pelecanos, and successful series like The Wire and The Night Of.
