"Carlo Lucarelli is the great promise of Italian crime writing."-La Stampa

April 1945, Italy. Commissario De Luca is heading up a dangerous investigation into the private lives of the rich and powerful during the frantic final days of the facist regime. The hierarchy has guaranteed De Luca their full cooperation, just so long as he arrests the "right" suspect. The house of cards built by Mussolini in the last months of WWII is collapsing and De Luca faces a world mired in sadistic sex, dirty money, drugs and murder.

One of Italy's best-loved crime writers, Carlo Lucarelli has published over a dozen novels and short story collections.
