Publisher's Summary

When Niccolo Rosselli, the driven, charismatic leader of a Florentine political movement, collapses at a rally, his young party immediately comes under threat. And when it emerges that his long time partner, Flavia, has disappeared, leaving behind not only a devastated husband but their newborn son, the political becomes dangerously personal - and Sandro Cellini is drafted in to investigate.

    "Absolutely addictive"

    I have now listened to four of the Sandro Cellini books one after another.Having visited Florence many times, I feel as if I am there with Sandro and his family as he works through each case and problem. Great credit must go to Saul Reichlin's superb narration. His voice describing the city and the atmosphere in each season of the year really engages you with Christobel Kent's characters. So involving, real and human that you are willing them to suceed. Sometimes slow and sometimes confused, Sandro gets there in the end in a realistic way. I have read, watched and listened to a number of Italian detectives and Sandro is now a firm favourite.

    "Fascinating Florence"

    This series just gets better, with the relationship between Sandro and his rather odd 'family'. this time mixed up with the local political situation.
    Beautifully read.
