A missing girl, an elderly Romanian dead on a bus, a burned body beside the autostrada. Commissario Soneri finds himself caught up in the criminal underworld of illegal immigrants, gypsies, and their links with Italian high-society. He is also in turmoil because his relationship with the turbulent Angela has reached a turning point and he feels very insecure.

A good plot - interesting characters and the landscape (as always) beautifully drawn, but the writing lets the whole thing down. Nothing a good editor couldn't have fixed. Awkward sentences, abrupt changes of scene, boring interludes and an ending that isn't an ending. I don't think I'll bother reading any more Varesi's.
