Description
It's August in Rome, and in this ninth outing for Nic Costa, after City of Fear, the art-loving detective's vacation is soon cut short by a scream, a girl covered in blood, and a man lying dead in the Via Beatrice Cenci. It seems that Malise Gabriel, a scholar with an impressive list of enemies, stepped onto faulty scaffolding for a cigarette and fell to his death—an unfortunate accident. But as Costa looks deeper into the facts, and into the haunted eyes of Gabriel's beautiful daughter Mina, the more he recognizes disturbing parallels with a centuries-old crime: four centuries ago, Beatrice Cenci was beheaded by the Vatican for murdering her father, a man known for horrendous sexual crimes.

"The main story takes time to gain momentum, but once secrets begin to be revealed, there's no stopping them. Readers will have a lot of fun peeling away the book's many layers, right down to the final, closing twist."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
