Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago, a mysterious group called the Blue Demon committed a series of bizarre and ritualistic crimes evoking the legacy of the lost race of the Etruscans, and leaving in their wake a group of dead students, a murdered couple, a cryptic message and a kidnapped child.
Now, the leaders of the G8 are descending on Rome for a summit at the Quirinale Palace. But when a politician is found ritually murdered, seemingly by a strange young man dressed as an Etruscan god, detective Nic Costa suspects that the old case was never really solved. The Blue Demon appear to have returned - and planning, under the leadership of the fanatical Andrea Petrakis, to unleash a devastating sequence of attacks on the city. As Costa and his team start to dig deeper into the past, they find that there are still too many unanswered questions – and much more to the history of the Blue Demon than anyone wants to admit.

"Blue Demon" ="City of Fear"

I really wish they'd quit screwing with the titles on Hewson's books. I just got the audiobook, but there was some confusion until I read both descriptions & figured it out (I haven't seen anything to indicate that on the precis). I like Hewson's Nic Costa series, but keep thinking new ones have come out only to find they're old ones with different titles. (btw, "Dante's Numbers" = "Dante's Killings").
Will add a review after I actually listen to it (I gave it 4 stars because of his earlier books).

Back to form

After a bit of disappointment with Dantes Numbers, Hewson was back to form with this book. Maybe the stories are getting a little overly complicated, but it had plenty of meat, lots of interesting new characters and all of the regular characters.

I just wish I could listen to some of the earlier books, which are not available on Audible.
