Chi incontrava Paolo Borsellino subito dopo la strage di Capaci? Chi intralciava il suo lavoro in procura? Perché pochi giorni prima di morire disse: "Forse saranno mafiosi quelli che materialmente mi uccideranno, ma quelli che avranno voluto la mia morte saranno altri"? «Questo non è soltanto un libro su un'agenda scomparsa. Questo è soprattutto un libro su una storia scomparsa: la storia degli ultimi giorni di Paolo Borsellino.» Marco Travaglio Molto è stato detto per celebrare la figura eroica di Paolo Borsellino. Molto poco invece si sa degli ultimi 56 giorni della sua vita, dalla strage di Capaci all'esplosione di via D’Amelio, quando qualcuno decide la sua condanna a morte. Lo Bianco e Rizza ricostruiscono quei giorni drammatici con l’aiuto delle carte giudiziarie, le testimonianze di pentiti ed ex colleghi magistrati, le confidenze di amici e familiari. E ci restituiscono le pagine dell’agenda scomparsa nell'inferno di via D’Amelio, in cui Borsellino annotava le riflessioni e i fatti più segreti. Qualcuno si affrettò a requisirla: troppo scottante ciò che il magistrato aveva annotato nella sua corsa contro il tempo, giorno dopo giorno. Chi incontrava? Chi intralciava il suo lavoro in Procura? Quali verità andava scoprendo? E perché, lasciato solo negli ultimi giorni della sua vita, disse: “Ho capito tutto... mi uccideranno, ma non sarà una vendetta della mafia... Forse saranno mafiosi quelli che materialmente mi uccideranno, ma quelli che avranno voluto la mia morte saranno altri”?

Merchants in the Temple
Author: Gianluigi Nuzzi
Publisher: Henry Holt and Company
From a bestselling author with unprecedented access to Pope Francis, an investigative look at the recent financial scandals at the highest levels of the Vatican A veritable war is waging in the Church: on one side, there is Pope Francis’s strong message for one church of the poor and all; on the other, there is the old Curia with its endless enemies, and the old and new lobbies struggling to preserve their not-so-Christian privileges. The old guard do not back down, they are ready to use all means necessary to stay in control and continue the immoral way they conduct their business. They resist reforms sought by Pope Francis and seek to delegitimize their opponents, to isolate those who want to eliminate corruption. It’s a war that will determine the future of the church. And if he loses the battle against secular interests and blackmail, Pope Francis could resign, much like his predecessor. Based on confidential information—including top secret documents from inside the Vatican, and actual transcripts of Pope Francis’s admonishments to the papal court about the lack of financial oversight and responsibility—Merchants in the Temple illustrates all the undercover work conducted by the Pope since his election and shows the reader who his real enemies are. It reveals the instruments Francis is using to reform the Vatican and rid it, once and for all, of the overwhelming corruption traditionally encrusted in the Roman Catholic Church. Merchants in the Temple is a startling book that will shock every reader. It’s a story worthy of a Dan Brown novel, with its electrifying details of the trickery and scheming against the papacy—except that it is real.

Author: Francesco La Licata, Massimo Ciancimino
Publisher: Quercus Books
Vito Ciancimino – Don Vito da Corleone – spent forty years in the grip of death, mafia, politics, business deals and the secret service. Don Vito recounts years of previously censored contacts between politicians and the mafia – between the Italian State and Cosa Nostra. The key witness is Massimo, his son, who has given his personal testament for the first time in which he recounts some of the most important events of Italy's recent history. If Roberto Saviano's Gomorrah revealed the workings of the mafia system from street level, Don Vito tells us about the people who held the reins of power.
