When the sins of the past echo the crimes of the present - When British academic Malise Gabriel falls to his death from a Rome apartment, detective Nic Costa suspects more than a simple accident. Nic is sure Malise's family are hiding vital information. As the investigation deepens, Rome's seedy side is uncovered, revealing a web of deceit, treachery and corruption. 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? This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60% of the author's work and as low as 30% with characters and plotlines removed.
