Author: Sandrone Dazieri Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/2019

The second novel from the acclaimed author of Kill the Father, this thriller is multi-layered, complex, full of twists and turns and satisfyingly dark - one of those novels you just have to read late into the night. A high-speed train from Milan draws into the station in Rome, and an horrific discovery in one carriage rocks the city. Preliminary investigations are put in the hands of Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli. The police receive a message claiming responsibility for the act and announcing more murders to come, and they duly turn their attention to a small terrorist group of Islamic extremists. But investigator Dante Torre does not believe this angle. For him, this feels like a smokescreen concealing the actions of a killer who has a far more terrible motivation to continue. The trail leads to Berlin and Venice, where the waters of the Venetian Lagoon will turn blood red ... Praise for Kill the Father: 'Absolutely electrifying' Jeffery Deaver 'A thriller of the highest order. Highly recommended' Christopher Reich 'A mind-bending, stunningly original page-turner' Jonathan Kellerman `Absolutely electrifying' Jeffery Deaver `Absorbing, disturbing, clever, bizarre, original and brutal' The Times `Never loses its grip' Daily Mail 'An intelligent thriller... very entertaining' Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express '[a] fascinatingly complex thriller' i newspaper ? `Sandrone Dazieri's intricate character-based thriller is undoubtedly a gripping read...a deliciously dark journey which provides a genuinely satisfying conclusion' Crime Scene? `Ingenious' John Verdon? `Don't be surprised if Kill the Father becomes the next Big Thing in international crime fiction' Booklist?

Panik auf dem Hauptbahnhof in Rom: Im Luxusabteil des Schnellzugs aus Mailand werden alle Passagiere tot aufgefunden: auf mysteriose Weise ermordet, hinter verschlossenen Turen, lautlos und rasend schnell. Colomba Caselli, die gerade wieder in den Polizeidienst zuruckgekehrt ist, ist ratlos. Handelt es sich hier etwa um den Terroranschlag, den Rom schon so lange befurchtet? Doch der so geniale wie traumatisierte Dante Torre glaubt nicht an diese Theorie. Da stoen Dante und Colomba auf die Spur eines Menschen, der jahrzehntelang unsichtbar geblieben ist - obwohl das Blut Hunderter Menschen an seinen Fingern klebt. Hat er auch die Toten aus dem Schnellzug auf dem Gewissen?

The rock cast a sharp, dark shadow over a shape huddled on the ground. Please don't let it be the boy, Colomba thought. Her silent prayer didn't go unanswered. The corpse belonged to the mother. When a woman is beheaded in a park outside Rome and her six-year-old son goes missing, the police unit assigned to the case sees an easy solution: they arrest the woman's husband and await his confession.

Fed through 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 hyper-observant capacities. All evidence suggests that The Father is back and active after being dormant for decades.
