Soon to be a major motion picture from director Ridley Scott, starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver.

Who killed Maurizio Gucci? Discover the sensational true story of murder, madness, glamour, and greed that shook the Gucci dynasty-and inspired the blockbuster film.

"A riveting account ... has the holding power and pace of an engaging novel." -Bloomberg

On the morning of March 27, 1995, four quick shots cracked through Milan's elegant streets. Maurizio Gucci, heir to the fabulous fashion dynasty, had been ambushed, slain on the steps to his office by an unknown gunman. Two years later, Milan's chief of police entered the sumptuous palazzo of Maurizio's ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani-nicknamed "the Black Widow" by the press-and arrested her for murder.

Did Patrizia kill her ex-husband because his spending was wildly out of control? Did she do it out of jealousy, because he was preparing to marry his mistress? Or is it possible Patrizia didn't do it at all?

The Gucci story is one of glitz, glamour, and intrigue-a chronicle of the rise, near fall, and subsequent resurgence of a fashion dynasty. Beautifully written, impeccably researched, and widely acclaimed, Sara Gay Forden's The House of Gucci is a page-turning account of high fashion, high finance, and heartrending personal tragedy.

'This gripping book about the empire and murder of Maurizio Gucci ... reveals the ugly truth behind fashion's most fabulous family.'
- Glamour

'A business book you will zip through like a novel. ... Forden has whipped up a mixture of family drama and high finance into a tasty and complex narrative.'
- The Economist, "A Best Book of the Year"

'Racy, fast-paced. ... Reads like a movie script. ... Hard to put down. ... Forden gets that famous Gucci bar-and-bit between her teeth -and gallops along.'
- International Herald Tribune

'A penetrating chronicle of the rise and fall of a family business. ... Even by the Borgia-like standards of the fashion industry, the operatic Guccis were special. Not content with the usual familial stew of love, jealousy and greed, they added tax evasion, bigamy and, yes, murder to the mix.'
- Wall Street Journal

'Riveting reading.'
- Cosmopolitan

'A riveting account of the talent and creative chaos that built one of the world's great luxury-goods empires--and the egotism, bitter family conflict, and incompetence that nearly destroyed it.'
- Bloomberg
