By David Hewson, Saul Reichlin, Whole Story Audiobooks

It was once a hot, golden night in Rome—a evening jam-packed with anticipation. A mythical director used to be premiering his new movie model of Dante’s Inferno. From worldwide, celebrities accrued on the Villa Borghese because the paparazzi thronged between them. yet inside of moments the development was once in chaos. a guy was once lifeless. The film’s famous person was once missing—and a useful relic had vanished. In David Hewson’s masterful new novel of suspense, Detective Nic Costa, numb from the new dying of his spouse, reveals himself and his fellow detectives drawn right into a unusual and terrifying limbo—the first of Dante’s 9 circles of Hell.

While Dante had Beatrice as his advisor, Nic Costa has an enigmatic fantastic thing about his personal: a bored American movie actress named Maggie Flavier who comes to a decision that Costa, and nobody else, is suited to the task of shielding her from the risk surrounding the movie. because the most effective shifts locations—from Rome to San Francisco—Costa leaves Europe for the 1st time in his lifestyles, and is pulled from his grief and ambivalence via Maggie Flavier and the town by way of the bay. thankfully his fellow detectives are below no such spell. Charged with preserving a trove of infrequent Italian works of art and artifacts, also they are becoming a member of the quest for a killer who has struck two times back, forsaking a tableau of clues that diversity from Dante’s lethal cycle of numbers to the flicks of Alfred Hitchcock.

Now, with Maggie herself at risk, Nic needs to throw off the fog of ask yourself and infatuation he feels within the presence of this gorgeous lady in all her guises. however it might already be too past due. As proof issues to connections deep in the Italian Mafia, and the Roman policemen do conflict with a celluloid tradition they can not particularly understand, a killer’s chilling plot is final in round them—guided by means of a poet’s medieval imaginative and prescient of sin and punishment, deliberate with a contemporary genius for revenge….

Bonetti has all kind of friends. ” He winced. “Other… friends. There's more than a hundred and fifty million dollars running on this horse. Money like that creates debts that need paying. This is your country…not mine, Officer. We both know there are people neither of us want to piss off, not for a three-hour private screening in front of a handful of self-important jerks in evening dress, anyway. All I ask is you give us a break. Then we're done. It won't get in the way. I'll make sure. ” Peroni couldn't believe what he was hearing.
