Review: Power on Earth: Michele Sindona's Explosive Story

User Review  - Martin Popoff - Goodreads

Floored at the research this must have taken. A heavy financials-laden bok by my fave author. I also read a drier one on same subject by an Italian, in English translation. Fascinating, but more so because of Tosches' fevering writing. Read full review
