Gino Vignali
Ci vuole orecchio (A Very Good Ear)
A novel, Solferino, March 2019, 208 pages

“A novel with the plot of a Netflix series and the direction of Federico Fellini.” Antonio D’Orrico, Sette

Two whole new cases for commissioner Costanza Confalonieri Bonnet and her team. 

It all begins with a suitcase. Captain Valentino Costanza’s fishing boat pulls it out the sea off the coast of Rimini, on a fine May day. The suitcase contains a small heap of bones, that look like those of a child. There’s only one thing to do: call the homicide squad, led by the irresistible deputy commissioner Costanza Confalonieri Bonnet.

Just a creepy cold case? Maybe, but less than forty-eight hours later, another case opens up, and it’s a hot one. It involves an unhappy heiress, a mysterious Foundation and a law firm to be handled very carefully. In other words it’s a mess, and to sort it out Costanza will need allies, including his mother’s partner Leo Liverani, a comedian and a gentleman, and Captain Valentino himself, who makes Costanza’s heart skip several beats.

In this new episode of the captivating thriller series by Gino Vignali, the head inspector Orlando Seneca Appicciafuoco, the special agent Cecilia Cortellesi, and superintendent Emerson Leichen Palmer Balducci, get back in the game alongside Costanza.

Two fast-paced plots intertwine in a Fellinian Rimini, exposing secrets of the high society and ambiguous circus atmospheres, in the seductive scenery of the Grand Hotel in springtime.
