Roman Roulette: Murder in the Catacombs
by David Downie
For Commissioner Daria Vinci, it was supposed to be a night off, attending a benefit concert for the Institute of America in Rome. But little did the Institute’s wealthy, distinguished guests know that beneath their feet, in the ancient catacombs, a very different kind of gathering was being held. One that would end in murder…
Red Riviera, the first Daria Vinci Investigation, was set on the Italian Riviera. In Roman Roulette, the glamorous and high-principled police commissioner of DIGOS, Italy’s FBI, must investigate what at first seems a simple case of suicide and in so doing attracts the attention of her boss, the Questor of the Province of Rome. He wants her off the case. Why? Suddenly, Commissioner Daria Vinci must solve the murder in 36 hours, while risking her career and, possibly, her life.
