The action is non-stop, and the blood flies off the page." - Linwood Barclay, bestselling author of Never Look Away and Fear the Worst) Hell hath no fury - Two perfectly matched gangs are fighting for control of the North-East Italian region of Venetia. But a formidable young woman with vengeance on her mind has plans to upset the balance. Abandoned by her mother and violated by a gang of criminals just after they slaughtered her father, Mila Zago is a cold-blooded killer, a deadly assassin. Brought up by her grandfather on the Sette Comuni plateau under a rigid martial code, she returns home to seek her revenge, conspiring to create a spectacular showdown reminiscent A Fistful of Dollars.

We have been waiting for it for a long time!" - Massimo Carlotto Edgar Nominated for The Goodbye Kiss "For everyone who loves Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill this book is a must-read! Violence and noir atmospherics from Matteo Strukul" - D, La Repubblicaq Delle Donne "With a high octane, fast paced tempo The Ballad of Mila paints a vivid picture of the merciless Northeast of Italy. With a melancholic, lyrical touch at the end of the tale." - La Stampa
