Description

Contract Killings illuminates the murky underworld of the 'Ndrangheta, Italy's most powerful mafia and Europe's biggest cocaine supplier. It shows how it has expanded into international financial fraud involving hundreds of millions of pounds of EU money given to Italy. Although less well known than the Cosa Nostra and Camorra, the 'Ndrangheta became the most powerful Italian crime syndicate in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Drawing upon original research based on police and court records, interviews and confidential documents, Annamarie Cumiskey unravels how and why the 'Ndrangheta moved into white collar crime. Cumiskey shows that whilst EU governments are slashing public spending the 'Ndrangheta is stealing from taxpayers with the help of lawyers, accountants and corrupt government officials.show more
