Summary

DESPUÉS DEL COMISARIO MONTALBANO, LLEGA EL COMISARIO VIVACQUA.

Carlo F. De Filippis suma su nombre a la gran novela negra europea con Camilleri, Lemaitre y Dazieri a la cabeza.
 
Salvatore Vivacqua, Totò para los más íntimos, es el jefe de la Brigada de Investigación de la policía de Turín. Siciliano de origen, ama Turín aunque le cuesta lidiar con su impenitente lluvia. No obstante, pronto tendrá razones más serias para preocuparse: Pierluigi Paternostro, un artista de renombre, ha sido ferozmente asesinado. ¿Quién podía odiarlo de esa manera?

Las víctimas comienzan a sucederse, y la presión de los medios y de sus superiores crece: Vivacqua tiene tres días para encontrar al culpable. En su cometido contará con la ayuda del doctor Silvano Meucci, un funcionario fanático de Napoleón que será clave para entender los movimientos del misterioso asesino. Mientras tanto, otro pequeño drama doméstico lo reclama: Tommy, el amado perro de la familia, ha desaparecido.

Con ecos de Camilleri, Fred Vargas y Lemaitre, De Filippis suma su nombre a la gran novela negra europea.
