Except for the ugly brown bullet hole, the corpse could have been the image of the man in the mirror’.
Lukas Stolz, an ex-East German maths guru is shot dead outside the Hotel Napoli in Milan. Career criminal, Pete Salterton who was staying at the same hotel, believes the bullet was meant for him.
Lieutenant Raphael Conza’s investigations lead him to a vital witness; Nyala Abebe, a young Ethiopian émigré who may know the moped rider spotted leaving the murder scene. Another witness goes missing and someone is leaking details about the case.
The gang behind the murder will stop at nothing to cover their tracks and Lieutenant Conza finds himself fighting their powerful allies. He soon realises he’s out of his depth in pursuit of brutal assassins in both Italy and the UK and has to reconsider his options after discovering a fifty-year-old story of betrayal in cold-war Germany.
