Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the night at the Museum of Volterra, young archeologist Fabrizio Castellani is immersed in his work - research into the famous Etruscan statue known as The Shade of Twilight. Completely engrossed, he is startled by the phone ringing. An icy female voice warns him to abandon his work at once.
A series of gruesome killings shortly follow, throwing the people of Volterra into a panic. The victims - all involved in the descration of an unexplored tomb - have been torn to pieces by a beast of unimaginable size. Fabrizio is in charge of excavating this Etruscan tomb.
What is hiding inside the enigmatic statue? What lies behind the bloodthirsty rage that has lain in wait for all these centuries? What tragedy is hidden behind the inscription? Will Fabrizio manage to unravel these secrets without being sucked into the spiral of violence himself?

All Consuming Book!

From the moment I started listening to this book I was hooked. The story as it unfolded was absorbing,& equally matched with the excellent narration.I must admit I listened to most of it in one session [not quite able to listen in full due to battery over ussage!]

It is a book I could listen to all over again within a short space of time. I guess it can be summed up as my type of book and would reccommend to like minded people who enjoy forensic/sci-fi/ horror & fantasy books.

Disappointing. Very straight plotline and one dimensional characters.
