In the gorgeous grounds of Rome's Villa Borghese park the glitterati of the movie world are gathered for a world premiere. A legendary Italian movie director has come out of retirement to create a blockbuster based on Dante's Inferno.

But, as Nic Costa and his colleagues attempt to guard the precious collection of historic artifacts attached to the event, the premiere is disrupted by tragedy and a horrific murder. Is a disgruntled admirer of Dante taking his revenge on the cast of the movie? Or are more mundane motives, the dubious financing of the film through criminal connections, to blame?

Before Costa and crew have the chance to find out they are removed from the inquiry and find themselves sidelined by the Carabinieri. But when the movie premiere shifts to California and the iconic surroundings of the Marina in San Francisco, Nic Costa's inspector, Leo Falcone, manages to bring them along to work on the investigation from the sidelines.

And as life begins to resemble art, Costa and his friends come to realise that the inspiration behind these crimes may be more recent than the Carabinieri suspect. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Last year I tried listening to this as an audio book and it failed to grip my interest. It was returned to the library unfinished as I was unwiling pay out more money to finish listening to something I wasn't enjoying. Set partly in Rome and partly in San Fransico, taking as its theme Dante's Inferno and Hitchcock's Vertigo this ought to have been a blockbuster of a novel. Somehow it faled to ignite. I kept waiting for the story to really get going but the whole book felt as though it was simply an introduction to something greater but that something never appeared. "

    " ok...respect of writer suffered when he placed kim novak in the same acting echelon as hepburn and davis. anything for the good of the story, i guess, no matter how far off base. "

    " Really enjoyed this book, the plot was based on an investigation into the theft of a death mask at the premiere showing of a new movie based on the story of Dante's inferno. "
