Power on Earth is a biography of Mafia-linked Italian banker and accused murderer Michele Sindona written by Nick Tosches. Based on his own in-depth research, including several interviews with Sindona himself while he was in prison awaiting trial, Tosches tells Sindona's rise from poor beginnings to becoming one of the world's most powerful bankers. It also details his connections with the Gambino crime family, the Vatican Bank, the Franklin National Bank in Long Island, New York, and the murder of Giorgio Ambrosoli, a lawyer overseeing the liquidation of his banks.
