“Perrone knows how to get the reader’s attention.” Il Giornale

A former Italian terrorist once belonging to Brigate Rosse (Red Brigades) admits on his death bed that he did not perpetrate the massacre for which he served decades in prison. He was not the one who brutally killed three carabinieri in the Emilian countryside back in 1986. And his backwards confession means just one thing: the real killers are still at large. And they are powerful. They have misled the investigation, soiled the waters, created a labyrinth of mirrors where the truth seems unattainable. A new case for Annibale “Tank” Canessa, former Colonel of the Carabinieri Army. He will not stop until he gets justice, and that is why he brings his team together one more time: the faithful Marshal Ivan Repetto, Piercarlo Rossi, known as Vampa, billionaire and aspiring man of action, the atypical hacker Matteo Bernasconi. With their help he faces an investigation that has its roots in the darkest shadows of the Resistance and the Liberation from Nazi-Fascism, in the troubled years after the Second World War, and extends them until today, in the Roman palaces of politics and power. A seventy year long blood trail, studded with victims and secrets. Everyone could be guilty, no exceptions made.
