An electrifying thriller for fans of Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly. Forced into retirement because of ill-health, Commissario Domenico Martelli is hired to investigate a grotesque and disturbing murder. The case brings him into conflict with his former colleagues and into confrontation with a mysterious and devious killer. Set in the breathtaking countryside of the Italian Riviera, Acqua Morta will keep you guessing until the very last page.
This dark crime thriller comes complete with sweeping vistas of Italy and descriptions that will transport you to an Italian dinner-table and leaving you drooling there.
Commissario Martelli, forced into retirement, continues to investigate his last case, a gruesome murder, against the wishes of his friends and ex colleagues. At the same time, in England, another policeman is investigating a case of forged passports and hoarded cash. Slowly, lyrically, the two strands twist together on their way to a single conclusion…
The writing is poetic, the descriptions evocative and the story wholesome. The book is a little long but, if you are a fan of both literary fiction and crime, this most certainly is the one for you.
