Die blinde Kommissarin

Herbst in Neapel. Blanca Occhiuzzi, Hauptkommissarin der örtlichen Polizei – schön, charismatisch und blind – wird immer dann gerufen, wenn ein Fall aussichtslos erscheint. Als der bekannte Musiker und Lebemann Jerry Vialdi ermordet wird, gibt es viele, die ein Motiv haben. Zu viele. Ein Fall für Blanca und ihr besonderes Gespür für menschliche Abgründe. Lüge und Täuschung: Niemand macht der Kommissarin etwas vor. Diese Gabe bringt oft den Erfolg. In diesem Fall bringt sie Blanca jedoch in höchste Gefahr.

The report that has jest landed on Commissario Martusciello’s desk is unlike any other. The lifeless body of the Neapolitan singer Jerry Vialdi, a.k.a. Gennaro Mangiavento, has been found at the Naples football stadium; another corpse, this time a Jane Doe, has been discovered in the Bentegodi Stadium in Verona, hundreds of miles away. Both bodies were left in a fetal position with no signs of physical violence, the method and the madness behind them appear to hide some unutterable secret. Conclusion: a daring challenge left by a psychopath for the police, who have no idea where to begin. Except for superintendent Blanca Occhiuzzi: beautiful, blind from birth, forced by the dark that envelops her to perceive the world through only four senses, she feels the fear in people; she feels their guilt and their innocence. It is she who takes Martusciello by the hand, guiding him into the mind of a murderer with her very female, very sensual intuition. It is as if he were the blind one. Allusive, mysterious, rife with double-meanings, saturated with an exotic, almost esoteric musicality, Patrizia Rinaldi has found a radically new way of writing to tell the story of a thrilling new kind of heroine.

Piano Forte

A kisregény színhelye egy kisváros, egy hely a világban, ahol az egyetlen lehetőség a törvénytisztelet, és a lázadás egyetlen megengedett módja: igaz emberként cselekedni. Néhány gyereket és fiatal zongoratanárukat (elválaszthatatlan korcs kutyájával, Eneával együtt) földrengés zárja el a külvilágtól: rájuk omlik az iskola.
Feszültséggel és izgalommal terhes napok következnek, amelyekben kiderülnek a gyengeségek, de kiből-kiből új, nem sejtett képességek és erőforrások is előbukkannak. Végül az érzelmek, a barátság, a zene és az életszeretet ereje kerekedik felül.
