Under cover of darkness, an American family moves into a villa in Cholong-sur-Avre in Normandy. Fred Blake, the father, tells everyone he is there to write a history of the Allied landings. But Fred Blake's real name is Giovanni Manzoni - and ex-Mafia boss who has grassed and is now part of the FBI's witness protection program. Violent, pacy and saturated with black humour, Benacquista's story explores what would happen if, say, the Soprano family were to move to Normandy - and the consequences are hilarious.
