A small-town kidnapping presents a major problem for an Italian police investigator, in this "gripping" crime novel by an award-winning author (Publishers Weekly). Northern Italy, 1978: Commissario Piero Trotti, trusted senior police investigator in a provincial city off the River Po, has two difficult cases to solve. A dismembered body has been found in the river, and it's up to Trotti to figure out who the murder victim is. At the same time, an estranged friend approaches Trotti with a desperate personal plea: his six-year-old daughter—Trotti's own goddaughter—has been kidnapped. In the wake of the high-profile kidnapping of Aldo Moro, president of Italy's majority party, faith in law enforcement is at an all-time low. The distraught father isn't willing to take this matter to the police—so it's up to Trotti to find her . . . "A wonderful picture of Italy during the time of the Red Brigades." —Elle
