Will, a callow British officer, plays at being a statesman, only to be forced to collaborate with criminals; Ray, an American infantryman reeling from his experience in battle, struggles to hold on to his sanity; Angilu, a shepherd, becomes the respected estate manager of a Sicilian prince, and finds himself in a bloody feud with Ciro Albanese, a local mafioso recently returned from America to settle old scores. The destinies of these four men converge in shocking, moving ways"--Dust jacket.
