In this fascinatingly complex thriller, two people, each shattered by their past, team up to solve a series of killings and abductions—a ruthlessly planned escalation that turns out to be merely the visible surface of something far more sinister. When a woman is beheaded in a park outside Rome and her six-year-old son goes missing, the police unit assigned to the case sees an easy solution: they arrest the woman’s husband and await his confession. But the chief of Rome’s major crimes unit doubts things are so simple. Secretly, he lures to the case two of Italy’s top analytical minds: Deputy Captain Colomba Caselli, a fierce, warrior-like detective still reeling from having survived a bloody catastrophe, and Dante Torre, a man who spent his childhood trapped inside a concrete silo. Fed by the gloved hand of a masked kidnapper who called himself “the Father,” Dante emerged from his ordeal with crippling claustrophobia but, also, with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and hyperobservant capacities. All evidence suggests that the Father is back and active after being dormant for decades. Indeed, he has left telltale signs that signal he’s looking forward to a reunion with Dante. But when Colomba and Dante begin following the ever-more-bizarre trail of clues, they grasp that what’s really going on is darker than they ever imagined.

Editorial Reviews

“Absolutely electrifying. Kill the Father is one of those rare treasures: a page-turning thriller—in every sense of the phrase—that is also brilliantly nuanced and rich with insight into the complex and compelling minds of those, good and bad, who inhabit its pages. This novel is the new definition of a one-sitting read.” Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author
“Outstanding…[an] unrelenting, adrenaline-fueled novel, with a final twist.” Booklist (starred review)
“Cassandra Campbell narrates this eerie story…[and] shows her dexterity as a narrator as she shifts between male and female characters without missing a beat. She deftly reads Italian words, names, and phrases, which lend authenticity to the overall experience. Those who enjoy listening while doing other tasks may find that this intense story demands their full attention. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
