Well Worth The Read!
on October 17, 2016
This work is well written. The plot is intricate and complex, and the characters are well developed.
"The Lost Daughter" moves from 1978 to the present where the protagonist Angela Vari figures importantly in both settings. In the 1978 time span, we're told of the Aldo Moro kidnapping and the political machinations of the Red Brigade, and Angela's part in it with her lover, Antonio. In the present day narrative, Angela is now Anna and married to a renowned doctor whose daughter is studying in Florence. His daughter, Kristen Carson, is kidnapped, and Anna/Angela also goes missing.
The book then focuses on a police investigation with Enzo Saenz working the case and reporting to his supervisor Alessandro Palliotti.
Palliotti was the lead investigator who appeared in "Villa Triste.." "The Lost Daughter" moves from Rome to Florence to Ferrara as Enzo is in pursuit of Anna whom he eventually finds, and he unravels the truth. I highly recommend this book. Amazon Verified Purchase.
