`Perry has ably pieced together a number of remarkable stories. His focus ... [in his] fast-moving book ... is on the women who, sickened by years of abuse and bullying, decided that they would take no more' Caroline Moorehead, Times Literary Supplement

`The highly compelling story of the women who dared to break omerta, the Mafia code of silence. In fully developing his subjects, Perry shows remarkable empathy for their plights. An impossible-to-put-down page-turner' Kirkus

`The painful and dangerous process of these women's rebellion against the family makes a gripping and heart-breaking narrative' Clare Longrigg, Observer

`Both harrowing and heartening ... and told with Alex Perry's usual verve' Tom Burgis, Financial Times

`A brilliant read' Devika Bhat, The Times

`This is something special' Nicholas Schmidle, New Yorker

`One female prosecutor in Italy believed that she could recruit mistreated, abused, and discarded Mafia women could help bring down the organization. She was right. This story is bananas' Lauren Katzenberg, New York Times
