Lillino Palazzolo is a young Sicilian man who takes part at the Cosa Nostra organization without a specific reason. Over time, he becomes the vurricatore, the official undertaker of Mafia murdered people, and he is on the run till the police looks for him. The brave Catturandi unit, a special law-enforcement section that goes after Mafia, will lay a complex trap for him.
A real man of Mafia called Gaspare Pulizzi inspired Lillino Palazzolo character; nowadays, the man is an informer. The real facts that involved Mr Pulizzi were obviously more cruel and dramatic, but the novel contributes to rebuild this dangerous world.
