Florence, October 1966. The rain is never-ending. When a young boy vanishes on his way home from school the police fear the worst, and Inspector Bordelli begins an increasingly desperate investigation. Then the flood hits. During the night of 4th November the swollen River Arno, already lapping the arches of the Ponte Vecchio, breaks its banks and overwhelms the city. Streets become rushing torrents, the force of the water sweeping away cars and trees, doors, shutters and anything else in its wake. In the aftermath of this unimaginable tragedy the mystery of the child's disappearance seems destined to go unsolved. But obstinate as ever, Bordelli is not prepared to give up

19 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spring, 1967. The trail of tragedy and destruction that followed the previous winter's flood seems to have died down; Florence is beginning to recover. But Inspector Bordelli does not feel the same sense of relief - he has not had a moment's peace since his investigation of a young boy's murder went disastrously wrong. Unsettled and embittered, Bordelli resigns from the force and leaves the city. He could not continue to work as a policeman while the perpetrators of such a terrible crime were still at large. Now, in the solitude of his new home in the mountains, he spends his days cooking, going for long walks in the woods and learning to grow his own vegetables. But the thought of that case - of justice not served - is constantly with him. Until fate, in which he has never believed, unexpectedly offers him the chance of retribution

5 editions published in 2014 in Italian and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Firenze, dicembre 1967. L’Alluvione è passata da poco più di un anno, lasciando a sua memoria una spessa riga nera sui muri dei palazzi, ma la vita in città ha ripreso a scorrere con i ritmi di sempre. Il commissario Bordelli è appesantito dai rimorsi di una faccenda non lontana nel tempo e dal desiderio struggente di una donna che ha perduto. Il ricordo di sua madre, scomparsa ormai da diversi anni, lo avvolge di dolce malinconia. Nel freddo di dicembre, in una villa sulle colline, un uomo molto ricco e benvoluto da tutti viene ucciso con un fioretto, e l’assassino non lascia nessuna traccia. Alle prese con questo difficile caso, Bordelli cercherà di scovare un minimo indizio che possa metterlo sulla buona strada per inchiodare il colpevole, ma nel frattempo si troverà a vivere situazioni del tutto inaspettate... e a dominare ogni cosa saranno i fantasmi del passato. Con questo romanzo Marco Vichi ci consegna un’altra sorprendente storia ricca di personaggi memorabili." -- Italian bookseller's or publisher's website

"Florence, 1967. It is winter, and one year has passed since the historic and devastating flood of the Arno, though the memories of that day still linger with the stains on the city walls. The anniversary of the flood brings with it a new case for Inspector Bordelli. A wealthy local industrialist, fiercely loved and respected by everyone he knew, has been found murdered in his grand villa in the Flesole hills, and the killer has left no trace. With no obvious leads to follow, Bordelli is patiently retracing the victim's last days when he encounters an old friend from the war. Inviting the man into his home, Bordelli doesn't realise that it is this friend who will lead him ever closer to the secrets at the heart of the mystery ..."--Publisher's description
