Abstract:

It's April 1964, but spring hasn't quite sprung. A grey, damp sky hangs over Florence, depressing weather that seems suited to nothing but bad news. And bad news is coming to the police station. First, Bordelli's friend, Casimiro, who insists that he's just found the body of a man in an olive grove above Fiesole. The inspector races to the scene, but finds no sign of a corpse. Only a couple of days later, a little girl is discovered at Villa Ventaglio: she has been strangled, and there is a horrible bite mark on her belly. Then another little girl is found murdered, with the same macabre signature. And meanwhile Casimiro has disappeared without a trace. The investigation marks the start of one of the darkest periods of Bordelli's life: a nightmare without end, as black as the sky above Florence.
