Publisher's Summary

Everyone Anton Waker grew up with is corrupt. His parents dealt in stolen goods, and he was a successful purveyor of forged documents until he abandoned it all in his early 20s, determined to live a normal life complete with a career, an apartment, and a fiancée who knows nothing of his criminal beginnings. He's on the verge of finally getting married when Aria - his cousin and former partner in crime - blackmails him into helping her with one last job.
Anton considers the task a small price for future freedom. But as he sets off for an Italian honeymoon, it soon becomes clear that the ghosts of his past can't be left behind so easily and that the task Aria requires will cost him more than he could ever imagine.

What the Critics Say

"Brilliant." (The Boston Globe)
"A gripping story, full of moral ambiguities, where deception and betrayal become the norm, and where the expression 'a riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma' is lifted to new heights." (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
"Something far rarer than the classic noir opening suggestions.... Eminently satisfying." (The Washington Post)

This author is talented and has a refreshing style. I thought the narrator did a good job, but wasn't great at accents...I imagine Edoardo Ballerini doing a bit better....but oh well...it was still very enjoyable and thought provoking. I didn't want it to end, and that is probably the best way to judge these books.
