Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION

MEMORANDUM [TRUSTED AGENTS ONLY]

 

TO:         SAC Robert Galloway, Los Angeles Field Office

FROM:   Special Agent Dennis Rizzio, FBI LEGAT, Rome

 

SUBJECT:  Special Agent ANA GREY

LOCATION:  Siena, Italy

 

TARGET:  NICOLI NICOSA, head of successful coffee import business.  Suspected mafia involvement.

 

CONTACT:  CECILIA MARIA NICOSA, wife of Nicoli Nicosa.  Popular socialite. Claims to be Special Agent Grey’s sister.

 

THE MISSION: Special Agent Grey to make close contact with Cecilia Maria Nicosa.  Penetrate family.  Investigate disappearance of mafia operative, LUCIA VINCENZA, Nicosa’s mistress.  Gather intelligence on Nicosa’s possible ties to cocaine trafficking.

 

SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES: Special Agent Grey will arrive during Il Palio, a famous horse race and time of high tension in the city.  Violent outbreaks among rival contradas (neighborhoods) are common.

 

WARNING:  THE SOUTHERN MAFIAS HAVE BEEN MAKING STRONG INROADS IN THIS PART OF ITALY.  MANY ENEMIES GO “WHITE SHOTGUN.” THEY DISAPPEAR.

 

UPDATE: Cecilia Maria Nicosa has been kidnapped  and their sixteen year-old son, Giovanni, severely beaten.  Nicoli Nicosa suspicious of FBI involvement.  Special Agent Grey to exercise extreme caution.

Synopsis:

Special Agent Ana Grey—intense, unpredictable, brilliant—returns in an electrifying new novel of suspense.

Even on leave from the FBI, Ana cant kick old habits: when she witnesses a drive-by shooting at an Italian restaurant in London, she helps the injured and gives testimony to the police. Still, it comes as a shock when, soon after, the Bureau contacts her—not because they want her to investigate the shooting, but because they want her to investigate the half sister she never knew she had, Cecilia, who lives in Siena and is married to Nicosa, a coffee mogul with some suspicious connections. Settling into their home under false pretenses is the least of the complications Ana encounters. The entire city of Siena is gearing up for its legendary horse race, the Palio—the dazzling annual culmination of ancient rivalries between the citys many wards. But when her nephew is stabbed and her sister goes missing, Ana understands with painful clarity that theres more than a horse race at stake here. And for Ana herself, it will mean an almost impossible choice between duty and family.

From the Hardcover edition.
