A new destination for connoisseurs of crime novels with Italian settings: Trieste, a town that rested in the shadows of world history for almost a century.
In the early hours of the morning, a luxury yacht strikes the coastline near Trieste at full speed. There is no trace of its owner. In the course of his investigations, Superintendent Proteo Laurenti encounters an old opponent once more – and recalls a bitter defeat. Twenty-two years ago, the man now missing, Bruno de Kopfersberg, was suspected of murdering his wife. Lacking evidence, Laurenti had to let him go. Now, groaning beneath the sweltering midsummer heat and beleaguered by a host of problems both political and private, Laurenti must search for him. When de Kopfersberg's body is finally fished from the sea, things start getting out of hand. A high official from Vienna, responsible for organizing EU relief for Turkish earthquake victims, smuggles large quantities of cash. Members of the Apulian Mafia are sighted in town. Politicians use their connections and policemen practise closing their eyes, rewarded with the services of young women from East Europe. And the murder of Elisa de Kopfersberg, too, will not remain unpunished...
An exciting and highly-detailed detective novel whose hero, Proteo Laurenti, will soon take his place in the ranks of famous investigators.
