Hanno riempito il vuoto lasciato dai vecchi boss della camorra, decaduti o in prigione. Vogliono prendersi Napoli, il traffico di droga, tutto.
Sono poco più che bambini.
Frutto di un accurato lavoro d'inchiesta sul campo, di interviste "off the record" dell'autore a child boss, anziani camorristi, investigatori, e da una profonda conoscenza delle carte processuali, questa è una storia tremendamente reale. I personaggi hanno nomi inventati, ma le situazioni in cui si muovono sono tutte vere. Di fantasia c'è quel poco che basta according to riempire i vuoti di una realtà che supera l'immaginazione.
È los angeles storia del delirio di onnipotenza di un extended family di ragazzi in una sanguinosa faida di camorra, che ha trascinato un'intera città nelle atmosfere cupe di Gotham urban. Ma senza supereroi.
