The Aurelio Zen Mystery Series


JACKET NOTES: Inspector Zen has a problem: an impossible murder, recorded on the closed-circuit video of Oscar Burolo's top-security Sardinian fortress. As Zen gets to work, he is once again plunged into a menacing and violent world where his own life is soon at risk (©Vintage Crime)

Away from the millionaire mansions and expensive beaches of Sardinia's north coast are the Sardinian mountains, lair of an unsubmissive, clannish, and hard people with no love of the law. In these flinty mountains a murder has been committed. The victim, Oscar Burolo, had built an impregnable villa with the latest in high-tech surveillance. But an assassin had somehow slipped throught, and now Burolo's dead. Aurelio Zen of the Ministry of the Interior has been assigned to the case, but the list of suspects soon develops into a dangerous rougues' gallery of neoterrorists, Machiavellian politicians, and artistic son, a venal co-worker, and a perverted lion tamer - all with ample reason to kill the victim... and the police investigaro. For as Zen get closer to the solution, a killer gets closer to him.
