Gina Gambino wants revenge. Her life has been turned upside down with the murder of her two hoodlum sons, but she knows who's done it. Her target is Don Francini, leader of one of the most powerful mafia families in Palermo. Using her brain and her body, Gina worms her way into his household, becoming first his housekeeper then his mistress, weaving a complicated web of poison and murder. It seems her plans are going well until one disastrous night.
Still Waters, Tough Love is full of vivid and dramatic set pieces, with a plot that twists and turns like a snake on a hot Sicilian rock. Think The Godfather, but with greater inside knowledge.
