Kill the father by Sandrone Dazieri
A Richard and Judy autumn selection.
A mother and her son are abducted from a park in Rome, launching a massive manhunt. The chief of Rome’s Major Crimes unit lures to the case two of Italy’s analytical minds. Deputy Captain Columba Caselli, a fierce, warrior-like detective still reeling from having survived a bloody catastrophe, and Dante Torre, a man who spent eleven young years captive, abducted by a mysterious man who called himself ‘The Father’. The Italian police fear ‘The Father’ has returned. But when Colomba and Dante begin following the ever-more-bizarre trail of clues, they grasp that what’s really going on is darker then they ever imagined.
