Chapter 11

Sassi di Matera, Italy

When Leilac received the last instructions to meet the capo of Sacra Corona Unit, he was on the stunning Amalfi coast, flirting with a Russian lover at the Le Sirenuse hotel.
His contact for that mission was Ilaria, an old friend who collaborated with Leilac’s team from time to time.
Leilac interrupted the minor holidays with his Russian friend to meet Ilaria at the Lloyd’s Baia Hotel, just outside Vietri.
He drove along the beautiful Amalfi coast, running past the main points of interest, such as Fiordo di Furore, Amalfi, Altran, Maiori, and Vietri Sul Mare, to Salermo, where Ilaria was waiting for him in a unique and classic Fiat 124.
They sped up that magnificent Abarth Fiat 124 Spider Rally Cabrio towards Ravello, where they had dinner in Rossellini’s restaurant.
The next day, they head to Sassi de Matera, but first, they stop at Castelmezzano and Petrapertosa, where they meet Renaud, a Swiss bank manager who was having lunch at La Locanda Di Pietra with his elegant secretary, to get the documents and passwords for accessing offshore bank accounts.
In the unique and timeless Sassi of Matera, Ilaria and Leilac were involved in an intense night of sex with a French couple, Gabriel and Valérie, whom they met on the terrace of the Palazzotto Residence & Winery hotel while savoring a good Pugliese red wine.
The next day they met with the capo of the Sacra Corona Unit at the Grotta Palazzese restaurant, who, in exchange for the money deposited in offshore accounts, handed them important documents to incriminate an Italian prosecutor. Leilac used the moment to solve a personal problem for Ilaria, which she had confided in him at dinner at Rossellinis.
