"... finance is not only a dramatic sleight of hand, the level of conflict has risen beyond limits, and we fight no longer for a profit with many zeros. It is the survival of the West as we know it. It is always said that the weavers of our fate have no face, that their most diabolical trick is to make us believe that they do not exist. Guido Maria Brera shows them for the first time up close, bringing us right into the middle of the grey area where decisions are born, where the only real power in our time has been exercised. This is the novel that lets you see from the inside that the cyclone is coming, and from which no one can take shelter."
