Description
In 1966 Florence, the autumn rainy season is the worst that anyone can remember. When a young boy vanishes on his way home from school the police fear the worst, and Inspector Bordelli begins an investigation that turns increasingly desperate, in this fourth book in the series to appear in English (following the International Dagger Award finalist Death in Sardinia). Then in the predawn hours of November 4, a wall of water pours down the already swollen Arno River and inundates the city. Streets become rushing torrents, the water sweeping away cars, trees, doors, and anything else in its wake, and more than a hundred people die. In the aftermath, the mystery of the child's disappearance seems destined to go unsolved—but Bordelli, obstinate as ever, is not prepared to give up.

"Bordelli is a marvelous creation. He's a WWII vet with still-vivid memories of its horrors, a dedicated policeman who is close friends with a former prostitute and a thief, a man who administers his own punishment to a shopkeeper gouging flood victims, a hopeless romantic who falls in love easily and totally with a beautiful young salesgirl, and a man who takes a dangerous gamble to try to nail Giacomo's killers."—Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine
