In 2000, Douglas Preston, the New York Times bestselling author of Blasphemy, fulfilled a lifelong dream when he moved his family to a stone farmhouse in Italy. Tucked into the side of a hill, his Tuscan home seemed like paradise on earth until he discovered that it had a dark past: the olive grove next to his home was the scene of a horrific double homicide by one of the most infamous figures in Italian history. Intrigued, Preston teamed up with celebrated journalist Mario Spezi in order to learn more about the murderer-a still-at-large serial killer known as the Monster of Florence who ritually murdered 14 young lovers and carved up their bodies with unbelievable cruelty. This volume chronicles their chilling investigation-and reveals how they got a lot more than they bargained for when their cold case turned white hot. Before they were done, they would become prime suspects in the police investigation...and would come face-to-face with the man they believe is the true killer. With the gripping suspense of Preston's bestselling novels, The Monster of Florence tells a remarkable true story of murder, mutilation, suicide and vengeance-with Preston and Spezi caught in the middle.
