The Deliverance of Evil


In 1982, the hard-drinking and brash Roman police detective Michele Balistreri cannot solve the murder of a beautiful young woman, Elisa Sordi.

As the file goes cold Balistreri is consumed by the guilt of having left Sordi’s murder. Twenty-four years after her death Elisa’s mother suddenly commits suicide. Balistreri is spurred to action. Surely he can now bring the murderer to justice.

The Deliverance of Evil is a masterful psychological thriller about a policeman’s personal evolution—or devolution—as seen through the lens of a devilish case that has haunted him throughout his career.

Jeffrey Deaver raved that The Deliverance of Evil is “rich with fascinating political history, filled with brilliant psychological insight, and a nonstop thriller.”
