On 11 July 1982, Elisa Sordi was beautiful. Commissario Michele Balistreri was fearless. Italy was victorious.

A killer was waiting…

On 9 July 2006, with Sordi’s case twenty-four years cold, and Balistreri haunted by guilt and regret, Italian victory returned.

And so did Sordi’s killer…

But this time Michele Balistreri would be ready. This time he would fear no evil.

‘Compelling drama … The gripping strength of the novel lies in its passionate portrayal of a corrupt and criminal Italy, from seedy traffickers to the Vatican’ The Times.

‘One of those rare novels that brings together the best elements of literature … and a nonstop thriller that drives readers relentlessly from first page to last’ Jeffery Deaver.

‘Utterly compelling’ Peter May.

‘Costantini pushes all the right buttons’ Seven magazine.

‘Sprawling, violent and beset by a tortured morality, this is a compelling vision of modern Italy’ Mail on Sunday.

‘A remarkably dark thriller … The author combines the plotting and pace of international crime with the poise and prowess of literary fiction, striating the narrative with topical political insight’ ShotsMag.
