Vendetta: An Aurelio Zen Mystery

Michael Dibdin


In Italian police inspector Aurelio Zen, Michael Dibdin has given the secret one among its most complicated and compelling protagonists: a guy wearily attempting to implement the legislations in a society the place the legislation is continually being bent. during this, the 1st novel he appears to be like in, Zen himself has been assigned to perform a little legislation bending. officers in a excessive executive ministry wish him to finger someone--anyone--for the homicide of an eccentric billionaire, whose corrupt dealings enriched probably the most exalted figures in Italian politics.But Oscar Burolo's homicide would appear to be not only unsolvable yet very unlikely. The wealthy person used to be killed on a seriously fortified Sardinian property, the place each room was once monitored by way of video cameras. these cameras captured Burolo's grisly demise, yet no longer the face of his killer. And that very same killer, elusive, implacable, and deranged, may well now be stalking Zen. Inexorable in its suspense, beautifully atmospheric, Vendetta is additional evidence of Dibdin's mastery of the crime novel.
