'SUPERINTENDENT TERESA BATTAGLIA, A CRIMINAL PROFILE EXPERT, IS IN HER SIXTIES, OVERWEIGHT, LONELY, DIABETIC, FULL OF THE AILMENTS OF AGEING - AND DELIGHTFUL. IT'S RARE THAT SUCH A CHARACTER ENTERS CRIME FICTION FOR THE FIRST TIME, AND WITH SUCH GRIPPING IMPACT' Marcel Berlins, The Times Crime Book of the Month In a quiet village surrounded by the imposing Italian Alps, a series of brutal assaults take place.

Police inspector Teresa Battaglia is called in when the first body is found. Soon more victims are discovered - all horrifically mutilated - and when a new-born baby is kidnapped, Teresa's investigation becomes a race against the clock.

But Teresa is also fighting a battle against her own body, weighed down by age and diabetes, and her mind, once invincible and now slowly gnawing away at her memory...

ILARIA TUTI lives in Friuli, in the far north-eastern part of Italy. FLOWERS OVER THE INFERNO, her debut novel and the first book in the Teresa Battaglia trilogy, was a top 10 bestseller on publication and the biggest debut of 2018 in Italy.


Creepy and evocative... but what gives this novel particular appeal is the sixty-something central character, whose abrasive manner hides a warm heart - Guardian This book has all the right ingredients: a brilliant protagonist, an eerie setting and a community hiding dark secrets - Dead Good (Debut crime novels to watch out for in 2019) If you are looking for a chilling murder mystery set in a landscape so majestic that it takes your breath away and fills your soul, head off to the Alps with the intriguing Detective Superintendent Teresa Battaglia, an Italian police chief who is set to give Tyneside's Vera a run for her money... Exciting, ice-coated, chilling and thrilling - Lancashire Post A stunning debut; a deliciously dark and action-packed thriller that is also deeply moving, even profound... I loved this book
