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.

Golly Moses; say it ain't so--could this REALLY be the last Bordelli book?!?! Set during the Great Florence flood of 1966; Bordelli and Piras search for child murderers. This book ends badly for all involved; pick it up today if you like 'em on the dark side.

Bordelli (interior thought) pg 342.
Poor Jesus, he thought. Too often men have used him as a sword, a purifying fire, a hammer for nailing coffins. Now he was being waved about to gain votes for a political party. if he ever came back to earth to speak his mind, they would lock him in the loony bin. Poor Jesus.
