A serial killer is terrorising the students of Bologna. Rookie female detective Grazia Negro is determined to solve the case. Only one witness can positively identify the killer...and he's blind. Simone spends his days in solitude, listening to Elvis Costello's Almost Blue and scanning the radio waves of the city to eavesdrop on other people's lives. He likes to imagine what people are like - based on the tone and 'colour' of their voice - and his acute hearing sets alarm bells ringing upon hearing the voice of the killer.

The triumphant third installment to Carlo Lucarelli's trilogy about an ex-fascist police detective, Commissario De Luca. It seems that our protagonist has steered himself through the treacherous shoals of the purge of the now defunct fascist state. However, murder and politics are not done with De Luca. There is a final case to solve. In the midst of highly pressurized constitutional elections, as italy prepares to distance herself from the immediate past, turning over too many rocks carries many risks. What is Italy's (or any society's) interest in truth? What is the price we are willing to pay for it?
