Blind psychiatrist Mark Angelotti is faced with his most troubling case yet when he is asked to evaluate Rachel Lazarus, the estranged wife of a slain University of Chicago professor. Months earlier, the professor’s body was found stuffed into one of the exhibits at “Scav,” the school’s world-famous annual scavenger hunt, and—in a feast for the press—missing a vital piece of its anatomy. Though she’s confessed to her husband’s murder, Rachel is mounting a battered woman’s defense. Forced into helping the prosecution, Mark becomes unsure of his objectivity when his investigation uncovers uncomfortable parallels between Rachel’s history and his own. That concern proves well-founded when his damaging admission at trial all but convicts Rachel. Then a tip connects the case to another suspected murder and evidence that Rachel may not be guilty after all. As he plows ahead during a brutal Chicago winter, Mark soon learns he has far more to worry about than treacherous snow and ice: someone will do anything to guarantee that Rachel takes the fall.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[An] extremely good read…[Raimondo’s] writing is first class.” Suspense Magazine
“Terrific…Nothing about a Raimondo novel is quite as it seems, and Dante’s Dilemma will keep you up long past a sensible bedtime.” Durango (CO) Herald
“The writing is crackling good, the pace non-stop, the mystery top-notch intrigue. The best Mark Angelotti yet!” Terry Shames, Macavity Award–winning author
“Absorbing…Raimondo does a good job highlighting some current academic controversies, but the book’s main strength is the flawed Angelotti, whose self-deprecating, wry humor in the face of his disability serves to offset some decidedly dark subject matter.” Publishers Weekly
“[Angelotti] is not, however, merely a blind detective. He is a smart, sarcastic psychiatrist who has solved a couple of crimes and uses a cane to get around. The unusual premise may provide the initial appeal here (there are fascinating details on the tools available to the visually impaired), but Raimondo has fashioned a series that works on multiple levels.” Booklist
“Raimondo has invested [Angelotti] with all his customary wit, courage, and honesty.” Kirkus Reviews
