Summary
"Northern Italy, 1978: Commissario Piero Trotti, trusted senior police investigator in an anonymous provincial city off the River Po, has two difficult cases to solve. An unidentified, dismembered body has been found in the river, and it's up to Trotti to figure out who the murder victim is. Meanwhile, an estranged friend approaches Trotti with a desperate personal plea: his six-year-old daughter--Trotti's own goddaughter--has been kidnapped. In the wake of the high-profile February 1978 kidnapping of Aldo Moro, president of Italy's majority party, whom the police have been utterly helpless to solve or prosecute, faith in law enforcement is at an all-time low, and it's no surprise the distraught father doesn't isn't willing to take this matter to the police. Williams' first novel is a gripping, literary thriller with vividly drawn characters and lush descriptions reminiscent of crime masters Raymond Chandler and Nicolas Freeling. For the first time, the entire Commissario Trotti series is available to readers across the US"--
