Returning to the Cloth Villa
Mystery, suspense and a deadly threat to humanity await in this crime novel by Francesco Frattini
Young Isabel embarks on a mysterious exploration of Mount Athos, unaware of the danger her unrelenting interest in the legends and fairy tales of this mystical place is leading her into. When her father, Commissioner Philip Dorsel, realizes that his daughter's life is in danger, he also heads to the beautiful Greek peninsula. He must use all the skills he has gained as an investigator with the Anti-Terrorism Unit of the French police to protect her. Because behind the magnificence and apparent tranquility of Athos lies a dark secret - a deadly virus that threatens to claim thousands of innocent victims. The whirlwind race against time passes through France, Greece, Bulgaria and England, and with each passing hour the fate of humanity becomes more and more uncertain.
Francesco Frattini, a businessman, producer and screenwriter, first published his novel Athos in 2018, not suspecting the dramatic events that would follow worldwide and in his native Italy. The current version contains an edited text and a new layout, but the original plot has been preserved.
After spending his childhood in foster care, Noah finally meets his mother, Patience, at the age of twelve, in the lobby of an airport in Louisiana. Though she does everything to make up for it, she never mentions the reason for the abandonment; and so, whether at the Cape Cod beach house where they spend seasons, or at the Connecticut theater where they end up working together, there is a path of embers that insists on separating them but that none dares to cross.
When Noah meets Frank O'Leary – an eccentric Jesuit who drives a Rolls-Royce to colours – he discovers in him the support he was looking for. Even so, there are things the priest prefers to keep to himself: his student years; the Irish bar in Boston where he and friends soaked in beer and recited poems; and Catherine, the ambitious young woman who was not afraid to divert him from his vocation.
It is, interestingly, the horrific experience of loneliness at a religious college – haunted by stories of Dickens and a gruesome murder – the first secret Patience will share with Noah; however, when this confession fits Father Frank's account, the smell of tragedy will remain in the air, and the revelation that follows it, can only be a lie.
Leaving Europe at war from the previous novels, João Pinto Coelho travels this time to New England and its beautiful and tumultuous sea, to offer us the fascinating story of a family that cannot escape its fate and whose outcome is truly genius.
Mother, Sweet Sea
Superintendent Teresa Battaglia, expert criminal profiler with four decades of experience on the Italian police force, returns for a chilling cold case.
A decades-old murder investigation has landed on Superintendent Teresa Battaglia's desk. DNA analysis has revealed that a painting from the final days of World War II contains matter from a human heart. Teresa is able to trace the evidence to Val Resia, one of Italy’s most isolated, untouched regions, where she faces a ruthless killer.
"They call them 'cold files'… like the wind that blows in these valleys, like the ice that covers the mountain tops. A violence buried by time that suddenly resurfaces… This may be the last investigation I will ever conduct. And for the first time in my life, I'm afraid I can't save anyone, not even myself."
