Imagine parachuting off an airplane. From the moment the doors are opened till your two feet touch the ground, there simply isn’t an instant where you can stop to take a breath or pause to embrace the excitement. Kill the Father by Sandrone Dazieri delivers a just as electrifying read with his first American debut. This page-turner is a chunk of enthralling police procedural. Translated by Anthony Shugaar, Kill the Father gives any crime novel enthusiast exactly what they crave for. The story follows two individuals carrying completely different backgrounds that still affect their present day in so many ways. First, we have Deputy Captain Colomba Caselli who is currently still on leave after surviving a horrible disaster and, second, we have Dante Torre, a man who was trapped inside a concrete silo by a person who proclaimed himself as The Father during more than a decade of his childhood. Dante Torre has since then become a consultant with hypersensory perception for countless specialists. After the discovery of a horrendous crime scene, these two individuals are brought together on a mystery that will soon expand into a disaster of a much grander scale.
