Navigating an array of accents and shifting emotional tension, Chris Andrew Ciulla delivers a solid narration of this taut mystery set in the Italian Alps. Chiara Berguet, the daughter of a local construction magnate, has been kidnapped. However, the crime is brought to light only through chance when a van with stolen plates is found in the trees along the highway. Beleaguered Deputy Police Chief Rocco Schiavone leads the inquiry, and Ciulla does well with the fast-paced dialogue and wordplay that marks Schiavone's investigative style. The procedural stretches over the course of five days and is interrupted periodically by Schiavone's romantic troubles and a looming threat from the past. Time expands and contracts, thanks to Ciulla's chilling rendering of Chiara's captivity. A.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
