ATTILIO BOLZONI, GIUSEPPE D’AVANZO The Boss of Bosses The basis of the Sky TV show Corleone, this is the life of the real godfather – the infamous Salvatore ‘Totò’ Riina, dreaded head of the Sicilian Mafia. Cosa Nostra boss Totò Riina rose from nothing to become the most powerful man in Sicily. A picture emerges of a bloodthirsty, power-hungry monster who, despite his lowly beginnings, is able to outmanoeuvre the other Mafia chiefs and take control of the organisation. However, the story is not just that of Riina, but also of Sicily itself. In prison for eighteen years now, Totò Riina still remains the dictator of the Cosa Nostra. This book tells his haunting and disturbing tale, with thorough investigation and testimony of the Sicilian Corleone. Attilio Bolzoni is the author of six books about the Mafia, and won the Italian ‘E Giornalismo’ prize in 2009. Journalist and writer Giuseppe D’Avanzo was deputy director and columnist at Italian Republic newspaper. He wrote a series of investigative reports that have marked the political history of Italy, and investigated international cases such as the Litvinenko case. He died in 2011.

Fertility problems are estimated to affect one in six couples in the UK (approximately 3.5 million people). Rosie Bray is a TV producer. Richard Mackney is a journalist and previously a reporter for ITV’s GMTV. He writes a column in Square Mile magazine.
