A Deadly ParadiseBook - 2008
In the peaceful Umbrian village of Paradiso, the shocking murder and mutilation of an elderly German woman is barely credible. Until, that is, Inspector Cenni of the State Police discovers that this retired cultural attach© was not just a difficult tenant, but also a bisexual swinger with an African lover recently in residence, as well as a blackmailer. The dead woman grew up in occupied Venice and some of her secrets may have been acquired during WWII. It turns out the bucolic village is not that innocent: it was the site of a famous, scandalous murder 50 years earlier.
