Book Review – Kill The Father

Kill The Father by Sandrone Dazieri (Simon & Schuster Ltd) ISBN: 9781471163265

While his father sleeps through a Sunday afternoon picnic, a young boy is mysteriously kidnapped and his mother brutally murdered. When police arrive, everything suggests the father is the primary suspect. The head of Rome’s Major Crimes Unit is not convinced. He calls on former colleague Deputy Captain Colomba Caselli to follow the scant clues of what on the surface appears to be an open-and-shut case.

Kill The Father introduces us to tough, beautiful Deputy Captain Colomba Caselli. Asked to work with the enigmatic, troubled Dante Torre, Colomba is intrigued. She learns that Dante has survived unimaginable trauma when he was kidnapped as a young boy and held for ten years in a cement silo, by an ominous figure called The Father. Dante is certain that The Father has returned and is responsible for the young boy’s kidnapping.

Working together Caselli and Torre unravel the clues that lead to a sinister network of human trafficking and corruption. Soon both Colomba and Dante are on the run. Keeping just one step ahead of The Father, they race to unmask this cruel monster.

Kill The Father is a fast-paced, thought-provoking read, filled with suspense and twists you do not see coming.
