In the picturesque Tuscan hill town of Scandicci, the body of a girl is discovered. Scantily dressed, she is lying by the edge of the woods. The local police investigate the case - but after a week, they still haven't even identified her, let alone got to the bottom of how she died. Frustrated by the lack of progress, Chief Superintendent Michele Ferrara, head of Florence's elite Squadra Mobile, decides to step in. Because toxins were discovered in the girl's body, many assumed that she died of a self-inflicted drugs overdose. But Ferrara quickly realises that the truth is darker than that: he believes that the girl was murdered.

And when he delves deeper, there are many aspects to the case that convince Ferrara that the girl's death is part of a sinister conspiracy - a conspiracy that has its roots in the very foundations of Tuscan society

Listener Opinions

    " A very good read. Michele Ferrara, head of the Squadra Mobile in Florence, investigates the death of a young woman, leading to crimes at the highest level of Florentine society. Another very engaging character on the European crime novel scene! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy Denham | 1/27/2014

    " This book was ok. It had twists and turns but I think I have missed some vital information regarding the characters as I have found out this is the 2nd book in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 12/24/2013

    " A young girl is found dead, an apparent suicide. Michele Ferrara, the top cop in Florence (who bears a resemblance to the author, also called Michele, also a cigar-smoker and the former top cop in Florence) suspects murder. Atmospheric and heaped with the kind of conspiracies you would expect to find in Italy. Good holiday read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 11/22/2013

    " Fast-paced novel following the exploits of Florence police chief Michele Ferrara. Complex plots involving paedophiles, drug dealers and mafia dons tie well together for an enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 11/14/2013

    " A little silly but fun if you have been to Italy or are planning a trip! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 9/11/2013

    " An interesting mystery, but not as well written as Donna Leon or Camilleri. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen wadey | 6/12/2013

    " Sometimes a bit hard to follow, but a good read not sure I will read another!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tanya Hayes | 5/10/2013

    " I found this book went into too much graphic detail when describing the autopsy procedure carried out on the young girl almost to the point of being crass. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lian Tanner | 4/29/2013

    " I enjoyed this so much. Haven't read anything by Giuttari previously, but will look out for more of his books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mariana | 10/28/2012

    " Kept me involved all the way through so an enjoyable distraction from real life, basically what you want from a detective novel (or what I want at least!). "

    " I ordered it because of the title, naturally, but enjoyed it more than just for the scenery and familiar place references. Will look out for others in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samra Muslim | 8/21/2011

    " An enjoyable read - well paced with enough twists and substance in the story to keep you hooked on till the end. The Italian angle was an added touch ... ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 6/18/2010

    " Nice, complex mystery with genuine background/context (written by an Italian who is a former police officer). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lizzie | 6/9/2010

    " I enjoyed this second novel - another Italian outing...the subject matter was quite disturbing but the tenacity the police display in solving the case was heartening "
