Description - Excellent Cadavers by Alexander Stille

EXCELLENT CADAVERS (a term used in Sicily to distinguish the assassination of prominent government officials from the hundreds of common criminals killed in the course of routine mafia business) tells of the remarkable investigation spearheaded by Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, the two Sicilian prosecutors who in the 1980s took the war against the Mafia further than anyone had ever dared. In 1992, aware that the two magistrates were without the complete support of the Italian government, the Mafia assassinated them. In death they were hailed as national heroes; the massive public outcry demanded their investigations to be completed. The outcome- the topping of crucial alliances that had forged political rule in Italy since WWII and the criminal indictment of Italy's most prominent leaders.
