Publisher's Summary

On a freezing November night Commissioner Alec Blume is called to the scene of a shooting. The victim is Sofia Fontana, the sole witness to a previous killing. Blume's enquiries lead from a professor with a passion for the art of memory to an ex-terrorist whose injuries have left her mind innocently blank; from present-day Rome's criminal underclass, to a murderous bombing in central. Italy several decades ago. Against the advice of his bosses and his own better judgement, Blume is drawn deeper into the case.

    Story
    "I wish I'd checked the reviews."

    I have enjoyed all the other books by Conor Fitzgerald that I have listened to (some not now available on Audible) but didn't check the narrator for this one. What a mistake.

    I found it impossible to get beyond a couple of chapters. The narrator, who had an American accent, seemed to be unable to differentiate between characters and I had to listen to some conversations more than once to work out who was speaking.

    But the story seemed intriguing so I expect I'll buy the book.
