The Long Intrigue

Author: Alfio Caruso

Until the collapse of the Soviet Union, Italy had the most important Communist party in Western Europe, and was the hottest site of the Cold War. Alfio Caruso recounts the most famous Italian mysteries between World War II and the fall of the Berlin Wall: Enrico Mattei’s unsolved plane crash, Aldo Moro’s murder, the perplexing death of Pope John Paul I, the first plot to assassinate Pope John Paul II, false U.S. Treasury securities in the Vatican, and the treachery of the secret services. Truth and likelihoods come together to tell this long, complex intrigue, starting with the secret 1943 Cassibile Armistice.
