When magistrate Matteo Arconti’s namesake, an insurance man from Milan, is found dead outside the court buildings in Piazzo Clodio, it’s a clear warning to the authorities in Rome—a message of defiance and intimidation from a powerful crime syndicate. Commissioner Alec Blume, interpreting the reference to his other ongoing case—a frustrating one in which he’s so far been unable to pin murder on a Mafia boss operating at an untouchable distance in Germany—knows he’s too close to it.
