The walkway led to another building, facing, on the opposite side, to the side of the hill, clinging to the olive grove that descended to other houses and interrupted at the gray wound of Aurelia, and then continued, to the sea. That little house was an authentic Ligurian archetype: hidden, complicated to reach and precious in an unimaginable way, like a pearl in the oyster. It seems that an old ghost has reappeared, in Genoa, on a dark November morning. A double murder, claimed by an anarchist cell, abruptly awakens tragic memories. A German bank is being targeted as a symbolic responsible for an Italy in crisis. Renzo Parodi and Salvatore Marotta immediately begin an investigation that will lead them, on a winding track full of insity, to Milan. As the victims increase, in an unpredictable and bloody crescendo, the two friends find themselves increasingly alone to seek the truth against appearances and their own colleagues. But Renzo Parodi has a hard, black and hard head and, as a black Genoese policeman, he uses privileged access and a special sensitivity to what is different from the norm. He will thus be able to point out a path, which no one would have thought to seek, towards an unthinkable revelation, but he will have to pay a price to his own conscience. Giovanni Barlocco in this noir/thriller expertly alternates moments of work and family life able to give the reader intense and intimate emotions, in the best tradition of Italian mistery.
