First edition. Fine in dust jacket. A left-wing priest is brutally murdered, and an emissary from the Vatican clears the priest's apartment of papers prior to calling the police. When a newspaper correspondent discovers the tampering with the crime scene, he turns the information over to the investigating magistrate, Elena Fiorini. Together they investigate, stumbling upon a tale of deception that leads them to a clandestine meeting of a banned political party and back to the days of Mussolini.
