Kill the Angel

a novel by Sandrone Dazieri



“Explosive…. [With] unrelentingly suspenseful effect, [Dazieri] once again exits with a cliff-hanger. With complex and fallible characters and nonstop action, this is prime international crime fiction and a great fit for followers of David Hewson’s Rome-set Nic Costa series.” — BOOKLIST, starred review

“A harrowing if entertaining ride. Fans of Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter series will, beg pardon, eat this up.”— KIRKUS REVIEWS

“This is an engaging novel whose characters come fully to life.”— THE VANCOUVER SUN

Kill the Angel - Canadian trade paperback editionA high-speed train from Milan draws into the station in Rome with a carriage full of dead bodies. Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli is in charge of the preliminary investigation.

A break in the case arrives when police receive a message claiming responsibility for the killings and announcing more murders to come. They turn their attention to a small terrorist group of Islamic extremists. But Dante Torre does not believe this angle. For him the Islamic link is a smokescreen concealing the actions of a killer who has been committing murders all over the world for years: a woman who calls herself Giltinè, after the mythological Lithuanian goddess of death.

The carnage continues and takes Colomba and Dante across Europe, but will they be able to stop this mysterious and deadly woman and figure out why she has committed these ghastly murders?

“This captivating novel keeps readers guessing and on edge until the final page.”
LIBRARY JOURNAL starred review

Kill the Father is an intense, gripping, and entirely unforgettable story—part psychological puzzle, part police procedural, and part conspiracy theory. Mr. Dazieri has written a thriller of the highest order. Highly recommended.”— CHRISTOPHER REICH, New York Times bestselling author of the Numbered Account and Rules of Deception

“Absolutely electrifying. Kill the Father is one of those rare treasures: a page-turning thriller—in every sense of the phrase—that is also brilliantly nuanced and rich with insight into the complex and compelling minds of those, good and bad, who inhabit its pages. This novel is the new definition of a one-sitting read.”— JEFFERY DEAVER, New York Times bestselling author of the The Bone Collector and The Steel Kiss

“A mind-bending, stunningly original page-turner…In Dante and Colomba, Sandrone Dazieri has created two of the most memorable characters in modern crime fiction.”— JONATHAN KELLERMAN, internationally bestselling author of A Cold Heart and Dr. Death

“Ingenious…features a pair of protagonists with personal demons as unnerving as the vicious monster they’re pursuing.”— JOHN VERDAN, internationally bestselling author of Think of a Number and Wolfe Lake

“Sandrone Dazieri's American debut is an epic tale that surprises at every turn—a twisty, mind-boggler that introduces not one but two memorable protagonists and hurls them into circumstances that threaten both their lives and sanity. The rollercoaster ride continues to the very last page, leaving me impatient for the sequel.”— JOSEPH FINDER, New York Times bestselling author of Guilty Minds and Suspicion
