Description

1978. Ponte, a small community in Northern Italy. An unbearably hot summer like many others. Elia Furenti is sixteen, living an unremarkable life of moderate unhappiness, until the day the beautiful, damaged Anna returns to Ponte and firmly propels Elia to the edge of adulthood. But then everything starts to unravel. Elia's father, Ettore, is let go from his job and loses himself in the darkest corners of his mind. A young boy is murdered. And a girl climbs into a van and vanishes in the deep, dark woods...

Professional reviews

"A riveting coming-of-age story set during a scorching Italian summer, told with the breathless precision of a Hitchcock noir. Winner of an English PEN Award. “A thriller, a mystery, a coming-of-age story that utterly gripped me from beginning to end.” GOOD HOUSEKEEPING “A novel of crime and darkness that eschews straightforward domestic noir.” GUARDIAN"
