About the Author
Sandrone Dazieri is the bestselling author of fourteen novels, including the Gorilla series, which was dramatized as an Italian film, and five screenplays. He was previously the founder of a small independent publishing house, Crime Noir. Kill the Father, the first in a series featuring Colomba Caselli and Dante Torre, is his first North American publication.
When police find a beheaded woman in the park and finds out her son, two years old is missing, they think this is a cinch. The husband had to have done it so they arrest him. But this is too easy, too obvious. The author gives you two characters that are both trying to come to grips with their pasts while watching each other's backs. They have to. They are trying to find a serial killer. They also have a missing child. The author gives characters that have their flaws, that makes them more realistic. The author doesn't give the readers a dull book, although the pace was rather slow for me. The plot has lots of surprises as you turn the pages, although this doesn't begin until almost the end of the book.The author includes crime, drama and violence. As you read you find yourself getting a little tense wondering what is happening to that little boy. You want an answer as to why the woman in the park was beheaded? Why was her son taken and where is he? Has the Father returned? He hasn't been heard of for years, but subtle clues are being left that indicates he's back. Will Dante and Colomba find him before he hurts the little boy, or will they be too late? I enjoyed reading a book with the Italian touch to it. It gave a small impression of the Mafia. Hoping the author does a sequel of Dante and Colomba. So if you like crime, suspense, drama and violence, follow Dante and Colomba in search of the Father!
