synopsis of the book / STORY

Prvi dan zgodaj zjutraj policijskega komisarja Rubina zbudi telefonski klic z informacijo o zločinu v eni rimskih četrti. Gre za Cristofora, rimskega odvetnika, ki je bil umorjen na zelo krut način. Pozneje se razkrije, da je bil odvetnik osumljen sodelovanja z mafijo, hkrati pa je bil tudi tajni policijski sodelavec. Pri osrednjem rimskem časopisu poročanje o dogodku dodelijo novinarskemu začetniku. Drugi dan Tožilec, ki vodi preiskavo, razkrije, da se je želel umorjeni odvetnik srečati z njim in domneva, ker je imel informacije o tajnih dogovorih. Izkaže se, da je dotlej neimenovani moški eden najmočnejših politikov v državi, senator Massimiliano Donato Sinagra, ki je zunanjemu ministru Rinaldiju pred dvajsetimi leti prek umorjenega odvetnika ponudil vplivni položaj v politiki v zameno za dragoceni dnevnik protimafijskega tožilca. Tretji dan se razkrije, da je zunanji minister še edina živeča priča tajnih dogovorov, Emanuele pa najde tudi edino pričo odvetnikovega umora. A Sinagri s pomočjo medijskih manipulacij in mafijskih morilcev uspe, da resnica ne zagleda belega dne.

SETTING

Roman se odvija v Rimu in Palermu maja 2012. Po anonimnem klicu policija odkrije truplo slavnega rimskega odvetnika, ki ga je nekdo kruto umoril v njegovi razkošni vili. Primer prevzame komisar Rubino, ki kmalu odkrije, da razlogi za umor in domnevni storilci umora, ki se mu ponujajo kot na pladnju, ne ustrezajo resničnosti.
