Family secrets, terrorist plots and the return of a legendary cop: a ferociously paced noir thriller from one of Italy’s top crime writers, and the second book in Pushkin Press’s collaboration with Walter Presents

Annibale Canessa didn’t want to go back to his old life. When everything went wrong in 1984, he traded his brutal, exciting career in the Carabinieri for paradise in San Fruttuoso. He started swimming in the bay at dawn and helping his elderly aunt run a small restaurant. His life was calm.

But some shattering news pulls him back in - his estranged brother has been found dead; lying beside him, the body of an ex-terrorist, a man Canessa himself caught. Back in Milan, Canessa must pursue old connections and unsolved crimes, which draw him ever deeper into the underworld he thought he’d left behind…

Gripping, bloody noir featuring a tough and cynical older protagonist, perfect for readers of Philip Kerr and Andrea Camilleri

The second title in Pushkin’s collaboration with Channel 4’s Walter Presents - will be supported by an eye-catching, Walter Presents-backed marketing and PR campaign targeting Walter’s fans via trailers in ad breaks for his shows, high-profile interviews and much more

Roberto Perrone was born in Rapallo and lives in Milan. As journalist he has written extensively about food, travel and sports. He is the author of several books of fiction and non-fiction, most famously his crime series featuring Annibale Canessa.
