In late 1995 Giulio Andreotti, seven-time prime minister of Italy and once called "the finest political mind in Europe", went on trial both for murder and for his association with the Sicilian Mafia. With hundreds of witnesses still to be called, there is no end in sight to this corruption scandal, the largest ever in Italian history. Midnight in Sicily chronicles the development of these events, exposing how from the end of World War II to the present Italy's politicians became the accomplices of an organization involved in extortion, drugs, kidnapping, torture, murder, and terrorism. And there are links to international secret services, America, corrupt financiers, and the Vatican. Robb interviewed dozens of anti-Mafia politicians and prosecutors, as well as many private citizens enmeshed in an all-pervasive web. This story of the Mafia and its political friends is also the story of Sicily, its opulent coasts, its stark interior, its extraordinary art and rich food, and its layers of culture from east and west.
