Description
In this "absolutely electrifying" (Jeffrey Deaver) thriller and huge international hit, two people—each shattered by their past—team up to solve a series of killings and abductions that may hint at something far more sinister at play.
When a woman is beheaded in a park outside Rome and her six-year-old son goes missing, the police see an easy solution: they arrest the woman's husband and await his confession. But the chief of Rome's major crimes unit has doubts.

Secretly, he lures to the case two of Italy's top analytical minds: Deputy Captain Colomba Caselli, a fierce, warrior-like detective still reeling from having survived a bloody catastrophe, and Dante Torre, a man who spent his childhood trapped inside a concrete silo. Fed by the gloved hand of a masked kidnapper who called himself "the Father," Dante emerged from his ordeal with crippling claustrophobia but, also, with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and hyperobservant capacities.

All evidence suggests that the Father is back and active after being dormant for decades. But when Colomba and Dante begin following the ever-more-bizarre trail of clues, they grasp that what's really going on is darker than they ever imagined.

An "intense, gripping, and entirely unforgettable" (Christopher Reich) thriller with many twists and turns, it's perfect for fans of Thomas Harris and Jo Nesbo.

        October 10, 2016
        Dazieri’s dazzling U.S. debut, the first in a series, introduces Deputy Capt. Colomba Caselli, a Rome police detective recuperating from major work-related PTSD, and Dante Torre, a near-incapacitated claustrophobic private consultant on missing-person cases. Caselli, who’s tough as nails but deeply injured by guilt over her role in a Paris bombing, is contemplating resigning from the police, but she feels she owes it to her boss to investigate the decapitation of a young mother and the disappearance of the woman’s
        preteen son. Torre is drawn into the case because in his own youth he was held
        captive for years in a silo by an unknown captor he called Father. Torre and Colomba, both driven by rage and revenge, make a convoluted descent into an abyss of child abductions, gang-related crime, government cover-ups, and international terrorism. Told in brutal, often wrenching detail, this is not an odyssey for the faint of heart. Agent: Laura Grandi, Grandi e Associati (Italy).

      • content: This is a textbook thriller: Police work against the clock to halt an increasing series of violent crimes. The opening, featuring a boy named Dante who is imprisoned in a silo, is unlike any other you've heard. Cassandra Campbell narrates this eerie story of a criminal known as "the Father" who returns decades later to haunt Dante and others. Campbell shows her dexterity as a narrator as she shifts between male and female characters without missing a beat. She deftly reads Italian words, names, and phrases, which lend authenticity to the overall experience. Those who enjoy listening while doing other tasks may find that this intense story demands their full attention. M.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
