Summary
"Turin, Italy 1887. When James Murray, a young Scottish doctor fascinated by the workings of the criminal mind, travels to the vibrant city of Turin, it is to study with Cesare Lombroso, the world-renowned criminologist. But just hours after his introduction to the unconventional Lombroso, the discovery of a horrifically mutilated body in the nearby Piazza Statuto and a note that appears to implicate the celebrated criminologist himself changes everything. With the help of his fellow apprentice, Ottolenghi; a local investigator, Tullio; and Lombroso s beautiful but enigmatic housekeeper, Sofia; Murray must put his learning to the test and endeavor to understand the mind of a malevolent serial killer, if he is to stop the rapidly escalating bloodbath and clear the name of his mentor. Have Lombroso s many enemies attempted to frame him? Are the notes an accusation or a challenge? And will Lombroso s own influential theories about criminal behavior hold the keys to Murray catching a cunning and ruthless killer?"--
