A compelling new mystery from the author of The Villa Triste

Kurzbeschreibung

‘Her past.’ Pallioti tapped the files. ‘This,’ he said, ‘is how you'll find her.’

In Florence, a young American student goes missing. At first neither Alessandro Pallioti, one of the city’s most senior policemen, nor Enzo Saenz, his deputy, are too concerned. But soon the men are horrified to discover that the older man Kristen has been spending time with is Antonio Tomaselli, a member of the notorious Red Brigades. Then, before the police can get a handle on the case, Kristen's step-mother, Anna, also vanishes.

Before long Enzo finds himself enmeshed in a web of false identities, betrayed loyalties, and revenge. At its centre is Anna, a woman he is increasingly drawn to, but knows he should not trust; and at stake is the life of an eighteen year old girl. With the horrors of the past rising behind him and the women’s futures hanging in the balance, Enzo Saenz is on unfamiliar ground and playing the most deadly game of his life . . .

'Grindle is a craftswoman of delicate, evocative psychological thrillers’ Daily Telegraph

HASH(0x9d66f684) von 5 Sternen A layered thriller based in historical fact 21. Januar 2013
Von Jim Napier, mystery & crime fiction reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
When seventeen-year-old American schoolgirl Kristen Carson is given the opportunity to study in Florence for a year, it seems too good to be true--and it is. Just as her parents arrive for a visit, she suddenly disappears. Her influential father pulls out all the stops in an effort to find her, but there isn't a lot to go on. Gradually, however, a picture emerges, and it's not pretty: just before vanishing she left a note for her flatmate, saying she'd be away for a few days; then she spent a wad of money on new clothing. Not a kidnapping, then.

It falls on detective Enzo Saenz and his partner to track her down. Their only clue is a cellphone photo of her getting into a car with a man, not identifiable but clearly older than Kristen. The father doesn't recognize him, but Saenz believes the girl's stepmother Anna, does. When he confronts her privately, though, she denies it. Before long Anna too has disappeared, and in an ominously similar way, drawing out a large sum of money and leaving all her personal identification behind. What common link would drive two apparently ordinary women to turn their backs on their comfortable and seemingly happy lives, and melt into a foreign country?

The quest to find the missing women will take the detectives back more than thirty years, to the turmoil surrounding the kidnapping and murder of Aldo Moro, Italy's President at the time. It will unearth old betrayals and build on new deceptions, and before it is over both careers and lives will be lost.

Lucretia Grindle reminds us that the War on Terror did not begin with the events of 9/11. Moving easily between Ferrara in 1965, Rome in 1978, and Florence in 2012, The Lost Daughter is a layered thriller based in historical fact and rich in suspense. Grindle expertly mines actual events and intersperses them with nuanced characters that lend credibility to her tale, and she perfectly captures the mendacity of politics and the making of young radicals. It is an engrossing tale that will earn the author many new fans.

HASH(0x9d677c24) von 5 Sternen Another superb novel from Lucretia Grindle 15. Februar 2014
Von Welsh Corgi fan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Like Villa Triste, which I also loved, The Lost Daughter contains two layers of one story. There is a mystery of today, and there is also a plot from 1978, when Aldo Moro was kidnapped and murdered. Of course, as we all know will happen, the two plots eventually come together into one.

Also like Villa Triste, The Lost Daughter is superb. The characters come to life, the locations vibrate with reality, and the denouement is throat-catching. It is almost too vivid and real, if that is possible.

I have recommended Villa Triste to many people, all of whom have loved it. I plan to do the same with The Lost Daughter, and I expect the same reaction.

The two books are, quite simply, astoundingly good. Read them.

HASH(0x9d679e10) von 5 Sternen Ten stars! 16. November 2013
Von Joyce Eriksen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If there were ten stars she would get them. The writing in this " apparently just a police procedural" set in Florence, is so fine that you can barely believe it. I quote "...the old port where the Po used to run before it changed its mind and meandered away like a senile relative." In the reviews I have read the readers mention the plot and how they like the characters but I mention the writing because plot and character are vital but oh how important is the writing. This artist is a dream and I hope there will be piles of her books in the future.

HASH(0x9d677bb8) von 5 Sternen interesting history but poor novel 31. März 2014
Von barry hindess - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The book is a police procedural organized around the later actions of two participants in the kidnap and killing of Aldo Moro. Anna's step-daughter disappears and appears to have been kidnapped while Anna disappears soon after. The story of the search for the two women, which is otherwise well done, relies on a series of flashbacks to the period around Moro's killing which add to the mystery of her disappearance but interrupt the contemporary narrative. The novel, in effect, runs together two stories, each of which interrupts the other
