The Dark Heart of Florence
2013, 371 pages
Chief Superintendent Michele Ferrara is back after being wounded during the capture of a notorious murderer who had terrorized Florence for months. But it seems nothing has changed – influence and corruption still control the police but Michele determined to do his job to the best of his ability even though his superiors undermine his work. When he responds to the murder of a well-known senator, he is sure there is more to the death than meets the eye. Is the Black Rose involved? And who makes up the Black Rose? The author, former head of the Florence police, spins a suspenseful story that keeps you reading until the unexpected twist at the end.
