From the back cover: Florence, October 1966. When a young boy vanishes, the police fear the worst, which brings Inspector Bordelli into an increasingly desperate investigation, in the new mystery from critics’ favorite Marco Vichi.
Florence, 1966. The rain is never-ending. When a young boy vanishes on his way home from school the police fear the worst, and Inspector Bordelli begins an increasingly desperate investigation.
Then the flood hits. During the night of November 4th the swollen River Arno, already lapping the arches of the Ponte Vecchio, breaks its banks and overwhelms the city. Streets become rushing torrents, the force of the water sweeping away cars and trees, doors, shutters and anything else in its wake.
In the aftermath of this unimaginable tragedy the mystery of the child’s disappearance seems destined to go unsolved. But obstinate as ever, Bordelli is not prepared to give up.
I enjoy a good police procedural. I especially enjoy a good police procedural that is non USA based, Inspector Bordelli is just perfect and the book is all about him. To me he is very similar to the Lt. Colombo character except we do not have any idea of who the killer is in this case. This is an impossible case. There was very little evidence to begin with and then there was the flood. Bordelli is an amazing character in that he just doesn’t let go. “Death In Florence” grabs you with the storyline and keeps you flipping pages as fast as possible. Don’t start this book late at night because you are going to want to finish it before you go to bed. I am so looking forward to the next adventure with Inspector Bordelli.
