The Fallen Angel, Paperback

The Fallen Angel Paperback



When British academic Malise Gabriel falls to his death from a Rome apartment, detective Nic Costa rapidly comes to realize that there is much more to the accident than he had first thought.

It also becomes apparent that Malise's family -- mysterious and tragic daughter Mina, stoic wife Cecilia and troubled son Robert -- may be keeping vital information hidden.

Nic becomes obsessed with the case, and is especially intrigued by Mina's story which seems to be linked with the sixteenth century-legend of a young Italian noblewoman, Beatrice Cenci.

As the investigation deepens, Rome's dark and seedy side is uncovered, revealing a web of deceit, treachery and corruption.

Costa realizes that the key to the truth lies with the Gabriels.

Why are they so unwilling to co-operate, and who, or what, is the reason for their silence?
