Kill the Angel

a novel by Sandrone Dazieri

A PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER, THE SECOND OF A TRILOGY

COLOMBA CASELLI AND DANTE TORRE, FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING NOVEL KILL THE FATHER, HAVE A NEW CASE TO SOLVE

“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

“Harrowing [and] entertaining…. Fans of Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter series will, beg pardon, eat this up.” —KIRKUS REVIEWS

“[Features] two of the most intriguing detectives to have emerged in recent years.” —DAILY MAIL (London)

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

Kill the Angel - Canadian trade paperback editionOn the streets of the Eternal City—and along the canals of Venice—detectives Torre and Caselli hunt, and are hunted by, a mass murderer known only as the Angel of Death…

In Rome, a high-speed train hurtles into the city’s main station with a carriage full of dead bodies. Subsequently, a terrorist cell claims responsibility and threatens more murders to come. The task of preventing further bloodshed falls to investigators Colomba Caselli and Dante Torre. But Caselli and the eccentric, brilliant Torre suspect there’s a subtler hand at work, and neither are ready to buy the terrorist link.

Not for the first time, Dante’s bizarre childhood, during which he was kept confined for years in a concrete silo, enables him to see what others miss, and in this case, to connect with a kindred spirit of sorts: the deadly Giltine, a woman whose equally bizarre childhood made her damaged, lethal, and full of murderous intent. The victim of a rare mental illness that makes her believe she’s already dead, she’s unacquainted with fear, which makes her the most formidable enemy Colomba and Dante have faced.

 

 

PRAISE FOR KILL THE FATHER

“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
