When the driven, charismatic leader of a Florentine political movement collapses at a rally, his young party immediately comes under threat. And when it emerges that his wife, Flavia, has disappeared, leaving behind not only a devastated husband but their newborn son, the political becomes dangerously personal--and Detective Inspector Sandro Cellini is summoned to investigate.nbsp; The trail leads to a somber seaside town, where Flavia chose to end her life. But Cellini isn't satisfied--why would one so young and with so much to live for walk away from all she loves? As he digs into Flavia's secret world, however, Sandro uncovers the hidden life of a woman consumed with private passions and a dark, deadly obsession--a stark reminder that life in modern Italy has a perilous edge, fueled as much by rage as desire.

Love this series - I was looking for a new murder series to follow and truly happy to have come across this series and this author. This is the third book I have read in the series and it doesn't disappoint. The main characters are real and endearing, plots are page-turning while unfolding at a thoughtful pace, author is very familiar with Florence and Florentines and describes them well. I highly recommend the series. Start with the first book to get a sense of where the characters are coming from. You will be hooked!
