Description
From thriller master Sandrone Dazieri, here is the startling conclusion to the internationally bestselling Caselli and Torre trilogy in which two damaged but deductively brilliant detectives must sort out what is real and what is imagined.
Reeling from a deadly bombing in Venice and her investigative partner Dante's disappearance, Detective Colomba Caselli retreats to the rural countryside outside Rome to nurse her wounds. When an apparently autistic teenager appears in her yard, covered in blood, he leads her to a brutal crime scene where nothing is what it seems. As Colomba gets pulled into the investigation and the body count spirals upward, she is implicated in the violence. Soon, she's convinced that a powerful villain is working in the shadows to cause the carnage and frame her, but the only person who can help her is Dante—and he hasn't been seen in over a year and is presumed dead. Colomba is sure he's alive and out there somewhere, but will she find him before it's too late? And can she clear her name and be free of the far-reaching legacy of the villain known as the Father?

Bursting with action, ingeniously plotted, and filled with one unexpected twist after another, Kill the King is a shocking and satisfying conclusion to this breathtakingly original crime series.

        March 2, 2020
        The bloody, convoluted conclusion to Dazieri’s serial killer trilogy (after 2018’s Kill the Angel) finds kidnapping victim Dante Torre still missing and former deputy captain Colomba Caselli recovering in the countryside near Portico, Italy, where the local carabinieri drag her into a double homicide case. During her investigation, Colomba discovers clues that enable her to single-handedly locate and rescue Dante. Colomba and Dante suspect that his kidnapper was involved in the double homicide and other murders that follow, but they also come to believe that another killer is at work. Even with Dante’s Holmes-like ability to put together disparate facts, and the on-again, off-again help of intelligence services and police, the pair remain behind the killers and their accomplices. Dazieri ups the ante by connecting the psychopaths to multinational security and pharmaceutical companies wanting to profit on inhumane “research.” The bizarre final reveal is a bit over-the-top. This isn’t for the faint of heart and runs too long, but fans of procedurals, conspiracy theories, or serial killer thrillers will be well satisfied. Agent: Laura Grandi, Grandi e Associati (Italy)

        April 1, 2020
        Italian mysterian Dazieri concludes a trilogy of dark mayhem with a suitably gruesome close. If Kill the Father (2017) gave us a would-be paterfamilias with whom only Hannibal Lecter would want to exchange Christmas cards and Kill the Angel (2018) introduced readers to the arcana of Indo-European mythology, this concluding volume is a study in PTSD. And for good reason: Colomba Caselli, the enterprising detective heroine, has had just about all she can stand of mass murder, decapitation, and other hallmarks of her trade, and she's taken herself to the Italian countryside to rest. It's quiet--too quiet, since the area is full of little towns "inhabited only by old people who rounded out their pensions by hunting for truffles." Yet even there trouble has a way of finding Colomba, in this case in the form of an apparently autistic young man she finds wandering about dazed, covered in blood that is not his own. The lad, she learns, "is perfectly capable of understanding and formulating intent," which makes him a fine candidate for imprisonment. It would be nice if Dante Torre, Colomba's partner in crime-solving, were on hand to figure out what's happened in the quaint confines of Montenigro, but he's been imprisoned in a "six-story building the size of a public housing block without a single fucking window on the upper floors"--and on the outskirts of Chernobyl, no less. This is no cozy English countryside whodunit: The doings that are afoot are nasty and exceedingly lethal, with a mad truck driver, for instance, mowing down rows of priests and assorted other victims until the festivities come to an end in a huge explosion "slicing like an incandescent scythe through the crowd of running people." That's just a taste of the ugliness that people wage on one another throughout the book, which is decidedly not for sensitive souls. Fans of Larsson and Nesb� will hope that Dazieri changes his mind and extends the Torre/Caselli series.
