Publisher's Summary

On 11 July, 1982, Elisa Sordi was beautiful. Commissario Michele Balistreri was fearless. Italy was victorious. A killer was waiting....
On 9 July, 2006, with Sordi’s case 24 years cold, and Balistreri haunted by guilt and regret, Italian victory returned. And so did Sordi’s killer.... But this time Michele Balistreri would be ready. This time he would fear no evil.

What a drag

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book was highly recommended by a good friend but what a disappointment it turned out to be. It's not the story as such but more the tedious and very slow pace of it all. <br/>I wasn't able to finish....and I only have to sit in my car and listen......maybe in an abridged version

What do you think your next listen will be?

Bill Bryson a Walk in the Woods, great book

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not to my knowledge

Any additional comments?

Try something else

Good read but weak ending

What made the experience of listening to The Deliverance of Evil the most enjoyable?

It could have been shortened to bring it together with more suspense...but I listened happily until the end when I thought there were so many better endings than the one it flitted into!

Some problems

Confusingly a few sections seem to be repeated in the audio file, which makes for a disjointed listen.
