LoveReading View on Kill the Father

A huge, almost sprawling thriller awaits, yet one that is ferocious, intense, and so, so readable. Set in Italy, Dante Torre and Captain Columba Caselli, both tortured souls, are enticed into the investigation of a child who has gone missing after his mother was beheaded. This is a complex case, filled with action, it quickly gains momentum. Every now and then a pause in proceedings, ‘before’ sections, allow access to the detailed brutality that defines Columba and Dante. Sandrine Dazieri has created a pair of fascinating leading characters, I was by their side and on their side. This is a fairly lengthy read, but I didn't want it to put it down as I raced through and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. ‘Kill The Father’ felt satisfyingly complete, and yet I was left wanting more, what a truly fabulous start to a new series. ~ Liz Robinson

Now working for the police force, Torre's methods are unorthodox but his brilliance is clear. When a young child goes missing in similar circumstances in Rome, Torre must confront the demons of his past to attempt to solve the case. Paired with Deputy Captain Colomba Caselli, a fierce, warrior-like detective still reeling from having survived a bloody catastrophe, all evidence suggests The Father is active after being dormant for decades, and that he's looking forward to a reunion with Dante ...
