This is the first English language translation of any work by GrimaldiItaly's best-selling answer to Patricia Highsmith and Ruth Rendell, and one of Europe's most popular authors of the thinking person's thriller. Suspicion suggests why. At once chilling gothic novel and a shrewd psychological study, Grimaldi's most accomplished novel evokes the horror of suspecting someone you love,and the nightmare of a parent glimpsing their own child's darkest, deepest, maybe murderous secrets.

"A tortured walk through the winding streets and twisted minds of modern Florence and Florentines. . . . leaves its readers . . . enlightened about crime fiction in a different culture by gluing its reader to the edge of the confessional couch."Ray Browne, former book review editor, Clues
