Publisher's Summary

In this fascinatingly complex thriller, two people, each shattered by their past, team to solve a series of killings and abductions....

When a woman is beheaded in a park outside Rome and her six-year-old son goes missing, the police unit assigned to the case sees an easy solution: they arrest the woman's husband and await his confession. But the Chief of Rome's Major Crimes unit doubts things are so simple. Secretly, he lures to the case two of Italy's top analytical minds: Deputy Captain Colomba Caselli, a fierce, warrior-like detective still reeling from having survived a bloody catastrophe, and Dante Torre, a man who spent his childhood trapped inside a concrete silo. Fed through the gloved hand of a masked kidnapper who called himself "The Father", Dante emerged from his ordeal with crippling claustrophobia but, also, with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and hyper-observant capacities.

All evidence suggests that the Father is back and active after being dormant for decades. Indeed, he has left tell-tale signs that signal he's looking forward to a reunion with Dante. But when Columba and Dante begin following the ever-more-bizarre trail of clues, they grasp that what's really going on is darker than they ever imagined.

    "Brilliant!"

    The crime/thriller genre in absolute perfection.

    Finished it in less than two days, and left still wanting more. Addictive through to the end.

    Great translation, retaining some typically Italian turns of phrase. Really accomplished performance (once you get used to the north American accent in a European setting).

    "Great"

    Classy thriller with lots to it - never bored me once and lots of unpredictable moments and events which kept it fresh. A fairly deep look at trauma in some ways as well, which is refreshing compared with books where people seem to suffer appallingly and bounce back with a few sleepless nights and a booze problem.

    "Kill the Father - Not bad not good"

    Kill the Father - Not bad not good
    The storyline was different hence the 3 stars but the female detective who was suppose to be tough sounded weak, this was because I think the narrators voice was too weak sounding
