Descripción de la editorial
*The thrilling conclusion to the acclaimed series that started with Kill the Father, a Richard and Judy 2017 Bookclub pick and Sunday Times bestseller*
Two damaged but deductively brilliant detectives must sort out what is real and what is imagined.
Reeling from a deadly bombing in Venice and her investigative partner Dante’s disappearance, Detective Colomba Caselli retreats to the rural countryside to nurse her wounds. When an autistic teenager appears in her yard, covered in blood, he leads her to a brutal crime scene where nothing is what it seems. As Colomba gets pulled into the investigation and the body count continues to grow, she is implicated in the violence. She is convinced that a powerful villain is working in the shadows to cause the carnage and frame her, but the only person who can help her is Dante—and he hasn’t been seen in over a year and is presumed dead. Colomba is sure he’s alive and out there somewhere, but will she find him before it’s too late? And can she clear her name and be free of the far-reaching legacy of the villain known as the Father...
Bursting with action, ingeniously plotted, and filled with one unexpected twist after another, Kill the King is a shocking and satisfying conclusion to this breathtakingly original crime series.
Praise for Sandrone Dazieri
'Fans of Larsson and Nesbø will hope that Dazieri changes his mind and extends the Torre/Caselli series' Kirkus Review on Kill the King
'Absolutely electrifying' Jeffery Deaver
'A thriller of the highest order. Highly recommended' Christopher Reich
'A mind-bending, stunningly original page-turner' Jonathan Kellerman
The bloody, convoluted conclusion to Dazieri's serial killer trilogy (after 2018's Kill the Angel) finds kidnapping victim Dante Torre still missing and former deputy captain Colomba Caselli recovering in the countryside near Portico, Italy, where the local carabinieri drag her into a double homicide case. During her investigation, Colomba discovers clues that enable her to single-handedly locate and rescue Dante. Colomba and Dante suspect that his kidnapper was involved in the double homicide and other murders that follow, but they also come to believe that another killer is at work. Even with Dante's Holmes-like ability to put together disparate facts, and the on-again, off-again help of intelligence services and police, the pair remain behind the killers and their accomplices. Dazieri ups the ante by connecting the psychopaths to multinational security and pharmaceutical companies wanting to profit on inhumane "research." The bizarre final reveal is a bit over-the-top. This isn't for the faint of heart and runs too long, but fans of procedurals, conspiracy theories, or serial killer thrillers will be well satisfied.
