Kill the Father

Sandrone Dazieri

Serial killer? Mad scientist? Capitalist espionage? Every time I thought I'd worked out what was happening in this excellent thriller my theory was thrown up in the air again! All this, plus a great duo in cop Columba and her expert adviser Dante, made for a fantastic read. Thank goodness the next in the series is just out.

Extract

Colomba hit the wall with her face and fell to the pavement. Her breath came back, along with a surge of sobbing.
'Oh, God," she said between sobs. 'Oh, God.'
Dante was right. There was a pitiess kidnapper operating in the shadows. There really was.
