An ancient crime, with a curse that remains

In the darkest hours of the night at the Museum of Volterra, young archaeologist Fabrizio Castellani is immersed in his work. He has discovered that the famous Etruscan statue known as "the shade of twilight" contains a mysterious object, seemingly enclosed within the sculpture itself. He is suddenly interrupted by a phone call from an icy female voice, warning him to abandon his research at once. A series of gruesome killings follow. The victims, who have all been involved in the desecration of an unexplored tomb, seem to be have been torn to pieces by a beast of unimaginable size. Meanwhile, as Fabrizio excavates the Etruscan tomb he discovers something extraordinary, and chilling. Will Fabrizio manage to unravel these secrets without being sucked into the spiral of violence himself?

About the Author:

Valerio Massimo Manfredi is professor of classical archaeology at Luigi Bocconi University in Milan. Further to numerous academic publications, he has published 13 works of fiction, including the Alexander trilogy which has been translated into 34 languages in 55 countries. His novel The Last Legion was released as a major motion picture. He has written and hosted documentaries on the ancient world and has penned screenplays for cinema and television.

Review:

"The language is sometimes quite fine, spare but evocative, with some eerie scenes that remind me of certain uncanny moments in David Lynch movies. . . . I am enjoying every page. . . . I would rate this as the best of VMM's thrillers. . . . expect vivid characters, a brooding atmosphere, authentic archaeological details, and a pretty good yarn."  —Steven Saylor, author, Roma
