Vendetta by Michael Dibdin


Vendetta by Michael Dibdin

Inspector Zen has a problem: an impossible murder, recorded on the closed-circuit video of Oscar Burolo's top-security Sardinian fortress. As Zen gets to work, he is once again plunged into a menacing and violent world where his own life is soon at risk.


Dibdin has a gift for shocking the unshockable reader. --Ruth Rendell Vendetta has tension, wit, a strong sense of place and a hero you can't help but root for. -- The Wall Street Journal A literate, suspenseful thriller.... Spinning a plot as convoluted as Sardinia's winding streets, Dibdin iluminates a deeply corrupted society. -- Milwaukee Journal Heart-pounding.... Vendetta is a terrifying tale of revenge. -- Mystery News
