Summary

Twice a week, Roberto Marias crosses Rome on foot to visit his psychiatrist. He often sits in silence, stumped by the ritual, but sometimes crucial memories come to the surface. He remembers when he was a child and used to surf with his father.
He remembers the treacherous years he spent working as an undercover agent. He has lived an intoxicating and crushing life, but now his psychiatrist's words and a meeting with a woman named Emma are beginning to revive him. And when 11-year-old Giacomo asks Roberto to help him conquer his nightmares, Roberto is at last reborn.
Carofiglio is one of Italy's best-selling novelists. He is also a member of the senate and was an anti-Mafia prosecutor in Bari.

A troubled mind, pleasant story

interesting insight into a troubled mind, with dialogue from the main character, but not comparable with Advocat Guido series. Great performance by the narrator Sean Barrett.

Beautiful writing

A gripping story, engaging characters and a wonderful reader. I enjoyed Carofiglio's previous novels set in Puglia. This one, set in Rome, with a new protagonist is both more lyrical and grittier. It's not prurient but there's some gruelling passages. Yet overall it's quite hopeful. This is my second listen. I can tell I will come back to this story again.
