The secret world of a murder victim leads detective Sandro Cellini to uncover the hidden life of a woman consumed by a deadly obsessionWhen the driven, charismatic leader of a Florentine political movement collapses at a rally, his young party immediately comes under threat. And when it emerges that his wife, Flavia, has disappeared, leaving behind not only a devastated husband but their newborn son, the political becomes dangerously personal—and Detective Inspector Sandro Cellini is summoned to investigate.
The trail leads to a somber seaside town, where Flavia chose to end her life. But Cellini isn’t satisfied—why would one so young and with so much to live for walk away from all she loves?
As he digs into Flavia’s secret world, however, Sandro uncovers the hidden life of a woman consumed with private passions and a dark, deadly obsession—a stark reminder that life in modern italy has a perilous edge, fueled as much by rage as desire.
