The Mountain by  Luca D'Andrea

The Mountain

by Luca D'Andrea

First U.K. edition. Limited edition of 100 copies signed by the author. Author's first novel. Originally published in Italian in 2016. Translated from the Italian by Howard Curtis. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. The crash was his fault. He was the only survivor. Now the depression and the nightmares are closing in. Only his daughter Clara can put a smile on his face. When he takes her to the Bletterbach, a canyon in the Dolomites rich in fossil remains, he overhears a conversation that gives his life renewed focus. In 1985 three students were murdered there, their bodies savaged, limbs severed and strewn by a killer who was never found. Salinger, a New Yorker, is far from home, and these Italian mountains, where his wife was born, harbor a close-knit, tight-lipped community whose mistrust of outsiders can turn ugly. All the same, solving this mystery might be the only thing that can keep him sane.
