Come la grandine (Like a Hailstorm)
A novel, Solferino, November 2020, 224 pages

A fun and moving adventure between modern criminals and ancient treasures.

The morning after the great international party at the Grand Hotel that opens the celebrations for the centenary of Federico Fellini’s birth, a famous producer is found dead in his suite, under more than equivocal circumstances. Called to investigate, the beautiful deputy commissioner Costanza Confalonieri Bonnet together with her team discovers the murderer in less than forty-eight hours, also thanks to the help of a former love interest who emerges from the past. But in the meantime, Rimini is shocked by a sequence of fatal accidents, too strange to be just accidents: the explosion of a boat, a strange overdose, a road murder. And what does Julius Caesar have to do with all this? After many twists, the honeymoon of Emerson Leichen Palmer Balducci and Cecilia Cortellesi will prove crucial for the investigation. While Costanza, in danger of life and on the edge of a difficult choice, meets none other than her father.

The fourth book in the mystery series by Gino Vignali is the surprising, hilarious and tender ending of an irresistible saga.
