How many lives had been burnt out? And who had made a gain thereof?

The dark side of big banks recounted by an insider. A most actual legal thriller on the greediness of financial institutions, where the law is the servant of money and not of justice. A journey through the corrupted conscience of our time.

Italy, 2013

The games of American banks with subprime mortgages have triggered the biggest crisis in history. Years thereafter, Italy still doesn’t see an exit. Banks don’t lend anymore, enterprises don’t produce anymore, nobody makes any more business: the country wears out in inaction and fades off. Those most hit, clearly, are ordinary people, anyone who hasn’t a family heritage behind. Crisis does not spare anyone: even thousands of independent professionals, once almost the epitome of financial solidity, are brought to their knees.

Attorney Luca Pugliatti is among them. He sees disaster closing in on him, and notwithstanding all his efforts he can’t manage to overturn the situation. Until one day an entrepreneur, himself in financial distress, hires him for a deal that may save them both. He has won a contract that would enable to pay off all his dues and relaunch his business, but he must reach an agreement with his creditor banks: if they give him the time to cash the revenues of the new contract, they will be paid out entirely, and with increased interest. The deal seems almost done, but one bank gets in the way…

The Last Client is a most actual legal thriller, that with the pace of an action novel recounts the lack of prospects of today’s life, the greediness and deceitfulness of financial institutions, and how one can still try to survive, bending the law to own's advantage.
