Publisher's Summary

Manuela, the daughter of a wealthy couple from Bari, disappeared without a trace months before and the police have closed their investigation, to the parents' despair. Counsellor Guerrieri reluctantly takes on an unusual assignment: to seek new evidence to force the police to reopen the case. It's a job more suitable to a private detective but a job that leads him to Nadia, a former client, a fascinating woman with an ambiguous past, and to the tempting Caterina, Manuela's best friend - exquisitely too young for the jaded Guerrieri....

Just slightly deviated from the golden path

The author has gone slightly off track in this 4th book of a tremendous series. Whereas Guido's asides about his past and his flaws added a warm personal touch to the clever courtroom arguments, this book is so full of musings that in places they detract from the story altogether. Indeed Guido's humiliation on his trip to Rome was incredibly aggrevating and seemed somewhat out of character to me. If this sounds harsh it is only because I hope that Gianrico Carofiglio's agents do get to read some of his reader reviews and will firmly guide him back on the straight and narrow. If you have been following this series do get this book to keep yourself up to date - it's not so poor that you won't enjoy it. However, like me, I think you will hope book 5 gets back to stronger stuff and Guido's very special way of seeing new threads in the evidence.

Guido Guerrieri

I continue to be entranced by Guido Guerrieri, Carofiglio's ever-so-slighty cynical Bari lawyer who has moved into becoming a bit of an amateur sleuth. Guerrieri's internal world, as he struggles to make sense of his activities, provides an intriguing view into the thoughts and feelings of a man in his 40s who has made something of a mess of his personal life, while enjoying some professional success.

Sean Barrett is a wonderful narrator, and I long for the next Guerrieri. Well done Carofiglio!
