In the last days of WW2, the novel follows the Allies' liberation of Sicily and North Africa as the region moves from total war to uneasy peace. Will, a callow British officer, plays at being a statesman, only to be forced to collaborate with criminals. Ray, an American infantryman reeling from his experience in battle, struggles to hold on to his sanity. Angilú, a shepherd, becomes the respected estate manager of a Sicilian prince, and finds himself in a bloody feud with Ciró Albanese, a local mafioso recently returned from America to settle old scores. The destinies of these four men converge in shocking and moving ways, caught in the blundering inaccuracies of war and the hushed violence of conspiracy. 323pp.
