Thriller writer Douglas Preston moved to Italy only to find out the nearby olive grove was the scene of a ghasty double murder Preston and the journalist originally covering the investigation Mario Spezi dig into the case of the Monster of Florence even winding up being investigated themselvesI know I made the synopsis sound like a thriller but this is non fiction the account of an Italian serial killer and his murders It s a fascinating journey into a reign of terror that lasted decades and into the psychology of the killer the Italian press and justice systemPreston writes the tale in an engaging way making me forget I was reading nonfiction at times The Monster of Florence s crimes were brutal and the descriptions of the murders can be somewhat graphic Each of the suspects almost seemed tailor made for a book of this type Spezi s and later Preston s frustration was almost tangible The one thing that reminded me that I wasn t reading fiction is that the Monster of Florence was never caughtFun fact The Monster of Florence the man not the book was a partial inspiration for parts of Hannibal by Thomas HarrisThat s about all I can say without revealing too much Read it yourself and get drawn into the web of deceit murder mutilation vengeance and corruption And you d be well served to never get suspected of a crime in Italy
