"From the wildly inventive mind of thriller master Sandrone Dazieri, whose first novel featuring investigators Colomba Caselli and Dante Torre, Kill the Father, was an international bestseller, comes the ingenious second novel in the series, Kill the Angel. In Rome, a high-speed train hurtles into the city's main station with a carriage full of dead bodies, the macabre discovery of which falls to Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli. Subsequently, the police receive a claim of responsibility and the threat of more murders to come. But neither Caselli nor her eccentrically brilliant ally, Dante Torre, are yet ready to buy the terrorist link. As the two maverick investigators puncture the facade of what the perpetrator wants everyone to believe, they come close to dying several times. Not for the first time, Dante's bizarre childhood, during which he was kept confined for years in a concrete silo, enables him to see what others miss, and in this case, to connect with a kindred spirit of sorts, a woman named Giltine who experienced an equally bizarre childhood from which she emerged damaged, lethal, and full of murderous intent. Adding to Giltine's eerie fierceness is that, as the victim of a rare mental illness, she believes she's already dead. She's unacquainted with fear. And that makes her the most formidable foe Colomba and Dante have faced yet. As the story climaxes, the duo finds themselves utterly on their own, on the outs with law enforcement and the only ones with a chance to make sure the waters of Venice don't turn red with blood"--"A crime thriller set in Rome, as two detectives hunt down a bizarre killer who believes she is already dead"--… (lisätietoja)

I decided to read this book (or listen to the audio version), despite not having read the first book, Kill the Father. I felt that it worked out quite well, despite this being the second book since you get information about what happened in the first book while reading this book.

One thing that I really loved about this book was the setting of Italy. The crime books I usually read is often set in the US, UK or Scandinavia was it great to shift the focus to a different country. I also loved both main characters, the fierce Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli and Dante Torre (a fascinating man with many skills, but also with a very tragic background). I really need to read the first book to get to know how Dante and Colomba met, and learn more about the case they worked on.

The case is elusive, mysterious and fascinating. I love the twist and turns the story takes and I particularly liked that the book managed to surprise me several times. And the ending, damn it! I need the next book now! Short review I know, but I don't want to give away anything of the story. Read the book, it's great!

On a side note, as much as I enjoyed listening to the book was it a bit hard sometimes to remember who was who. It got better during the progress of the book, however reading the book might, in this case, be preferable, although the narrator was very good. ( )

Having finished reading Kill the Father prior to this book I literally couldn’t wait to start reading as soon as I had finished the last page and now I wish the next book in the series was awaiting straight from finishing this one! Although I wasn’t as blown away (hahaha) as I was with the first book but it still cost me a whole nights sleep, my poor eyes felt like they had grit in them come 5am but I still couldn’t stop reading.

I am starting to realise Mr Dazieri has a passion for blowing things up! Not that thats a bad thing but I wouldn’t want to be one of his characters 🙂

The lead characters continue to be brilliant, each with their own flaws and challenges that expands further from book one and if anything more enjoyable in some pretty shite situations but the ending!! WTF??? Really!!!

The subject matter of this book is a pretty unique as far as my reading experiences go, starting with a deadly poison attack on a train entering Rome, seen as an act of terrorism by Muslim extremists ISIS. And as we follow Colomba with the investigation and her decision to turn to Dante yet again for his unique help it becomes clear that the so called terror attack wasn’t committed by terrorists, but by a serial killer who has avoided detection for years. And she (got to love female serial killers!) is a brilliantly clever antagonist to oppose Dante’s genius and quirks.

If you enjoy clever addictive crime thrillers then don’t miss this book – seriously!! You don’t necessarily have to read Kill the Father first as there is enough back story for it to work as a worthy standalone novel however I do really think reading them in order makes them so much better and the characters much more understandable.

This is 100% worthy of being in the category of Top Thrillers of 2018 ( )

***Contains spoilers. You’ve been warned***

Oh lordy. Lordy lordy lordy. I don’t know what to say except, yes one more time. Lordy. I finished this book and screamed. And it’s a good reaction.

This book doesn’t disappoint. It sets the bar higher than the last one, Kill the Father. It would be best if you do read them in order as you do need the background information surrounding Dante. Plus, it does add more substance to the characters.

This one was definitely more action packed than previous. As it involves a great deal more victims and there’s definitely more layers to peel once the mystery starts to unravel and we get closer to Giltine. And it’s not yet over! There’s giant revelations at the end and you’re left with a heart stopping ending.

There are many twists and turns to go through in the book; old and new characters are mentioned, and of course Colomba is in a bind and goes through very hefty events and you marvel at her mental and emotional strength. Dante is likable in his own quirky way and both him and Colomba work so great as a team, even though they have their differences. There’s a more deeper level of understand between the two of them and there is a hint of a romance. I don’t see it myself as I’ve always seen Dante and Colomba more as a sibling like relationship. (I would have liked to see Dante and Brigitte together, they seemed like they could go along well!)

There’s some major blindsiding happening in the book, you realize Giltine is both victim and perpetrator. There’s still more to uncover in the mystery and by the time we do come to the conclusion it would be a massive atom bomb waiting to drop. However on a side note, I do enjoy how Dazieri brings in these references to various historical events (Chernobyl for one) and various conditions and illnesses to make you think and realize there’s actual conditions out there that exist and people do suffer from them. It makes the plot different and substantially prominent to make this book memorable.

The plot is very engaging and you’re pretty much on the edge in the last third of the book. The last few chapters really pack it in and they were one of the most exciting chapters I have ever read in a book so far. I’m still overwhelmed and blown away by the last page. Gah! I can’t wait for the next book!

Definitely recommended. The series is going to be one of the best I have read so far in my lifetime. ( )

3.5 Once again I find myself in Italy, with two of the most unique characters in recent novels. When a car full of first class passengers is found with all inside dead, Caselli, just recently back with her police Dept, is called to the scene. When ISIS claims credit for the deaths, Caselle calls for Dante Torres. Torres, not with the police, has a unique skill, fostered by the horror of his eArly years in captivity, of being able to detect clues from body language, and to put together things others do not see. This case will take them to places and people far and wide.

I love these characters together, though both are an emotional mess, especially Torres who needs a prodigious amount of pills to keep himself moving. He is also trying to find out who he was, who he beloonged to before he was kidnapped. This series has both elements of a police procedural, but also those of a thriller. The combination makes for a fast moving plot, while not forgetting key aspects of the characters. So in a way it is also a unique character study.

This case, and the back and forth was sometimes confusing, the connection sometimes hard to follow, but I found it intriguing. Also learned of a new syndrome I had never heard of, and I looked it up to see if it was factual. It was, but very rare. Did add an strangenessof depth to a particular character. This is z little more graphic in a few places than I usually read, but those section were easy to skin without losing the focus of the novel. The ending was carefully crafted so the reader knows without doubt there will be another addition to this series. ( )

The cover art for this book reminds me (perhaps intentionally) of the highly praised Doctor Who June 2007 episode "Don't Blink".

The story, though, is much different. Not science fiction, it is a thriller set in Venice where a train car is discovered full of rotting corpses of rich and famous people. Yuck. Deputy Police Commissioner Colomba Caselli and her sidekick Dante Torre (we met this team in 2017's "Kill the Father") are brought in to solve the case and find the terrorists.

Wait a minute though, the terrorism story doesn't quite fit and suddenly we are looking for a clever murderer.

Mr. Dazieri plots an exciting book but his writing, in Italian or perhaps as a result of the translation, misses the mark for exciting reading. There is a whole interlude in Berlin that I found dull. More irritating are the frequent asides to the reader that Mr. Dazieri likes to include: "Of course, Columba did worry, and she would have been even more worried than she was if she'd known where he'd gone." This is not tight English prose.

I received a review copy of "Kill the Angel" by Sandrone Dazieri translate by Word Row, Inc. (Scribner) through NetGalley.com. It was originally published in Italy in 2016 as L'Angelo. I'm not sure why we needed add "Kill the" for the English title. ( )
