Content descriptions

General Note: "Originally published in Italy in 2016 as L'Angelo" -- Title page verso.
Sequel to: Uccidi il padre. Published in English under the title: Kill the father.
Summary, etc.: "From the wildly inventive mind of thriller master Sandrone Dazieri, whose first novel featuring investigators Colomba Caselli and Dante Torre, Kill the Father, was an international bestseller, comes the ingenious second novel in the series, Kill the Angel. In Rome, a high-speed train hurtles into the city's main station with a carriage full of dead bodies, the macabre discovery of which falls to Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli. Subsequently, the police receive a claim of responsibility and the threat of more murders to come. But neither Caselli nor her eccentrically brilliant ally, Dante Torre, are yet ready to buy the terrorist link. As the two maverick investigators puncture the facade of what the perpetrator wants everyone to believe, they come close to dying several times. Not for the first time, Dante's bizarre childhood, during which he was kept confined for years in a concrete silo, enables him to see what others miss, and in this case, to connect with a kindred spirit of sorts, a woman named Giltine who experienced an equally bizarre childhood from which she emerged damaged, lethal, and full of murderous intent. Adding to Giltine's eerie fierceness is that, as the victim of a rare mental illness, she believes she's already dead. She's unacquainted with fear. And that makes her the most formidable foe Colomba and Dante have faced yet. As the story climaxes, the duo finds themselves utterly on their own, on the outs with law enforcement and the only ones with a chance to make sure the waters of Venice don't turn red with blood"-- Provided by publisher.
"A crime thriller set in Rome, as two detectives hunt down a bizarre killer who believes she is already dead"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Mass murder on a train from Milan to Rome kicks off an international quest for the elusive Angel of Death in this explosive follow-up to Kill the Father (2017). Rome Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli puts herself at risk when she discovers that all the first-class passengers on the train are dead, victims of a deadly gas. ISIS claims responsibility for the deaths in an amateurish video featuring two presumed perpetrators, and Caselli asks for help in identifying them from Dante Torre, a master at reading human behavior. After an ensuing shoot-out, Caselli, who's known to stray from accepted police procedures, is placed on administrative suspension. But by then, she and Torre—both damaged by traumas in their pasts, leaving her with panic attacks and him with severe claustrophobia—have gone too far to give up their quest for the woman they believe responsible for multiple murders in various countries. This is compelling crime fiction but not for the faint of heart or stomach, given the abundance of gruesome scenes (sequestering a deadly scorpion in the mouth of a child), but Dazieri mixes fact with conjecture to unrelentingly suspenseful effect, and he once again exits with a cliff-hanger. With complex and fallible characters and nonstop action, this is prime international crime fiction and a great fit for followers of David Hewson's Rome-set Nic Costa series.
