  • A l'ombre du Vatican, un serial-killer inflige à ses victimes les supplices des premiers martyrs de l'église.
    dans l'atmosphère oppressante d'une Rome écrasée sous la chaleur, Sara Franese, jeune spécialiste de l'église primitive, est dans la salle de lecture de la bibliothèque du Vatican, penchée sur la copie d'un manuscrit du Xe siècle, lorsque surgit son ancien amant, le professeur Stefano Rinaldi, qui la menace d'un pistolet, avant même d'être abattu par les gardes suisses. Quelques heures plus tard, on retrouve le cadavre de sa jeune femme dans une petite église romaine près de celui d'un homme écorché vif.
    Au mur, une inscription peinte en lettre de sang : " Le sang des martyrs est la semence de l'Eglise. " d'autres victimes suivront, retrouvées assassinées dans de macabres mises en scène. L'enquête est confiée à Nice Costa, jeune flic romain à la personnalité complexe, fils d'une grande figure du parti communiste italien et grand amateur de l'oeuvre du Caravage. Mais entre la difficulté de mener des investigations au sein du Vatican, où convergent ses pistes, la pression des politiciens et l'ombre, omniprésente, de la mafia, l'affaire s'annonce aussi difficile que passionnante.
    A travers les arcanes de l'histoire religieuse et artistique de Rome, David Hewson nous offre un thriller d'une densité peu commune, qui hantera durablement le lecteur.

  • Après Une saison pour les morts, une nouvelle enquête de Nic Costa où, dans l'atmosphère oppressante de la ville de Rome, se mêlent rituels millénaires, secrets religieux et l'ombre de la Mafia.
    Lorsqu'une jeune femme affolée vient déclarer à la police l'enlèvement de sa fille de seize ans, l'inspecteur Nic Costa, de retour après plusieurs mois d'absence, physiquement et mentalement éprouvé par la disparition de son partenaire, se saisit de l'affaire. Celle-ci présente d'étranges similitudes avec la disparition d'une autre adolescente, victime d'un rite dionysiaque ancestral, dont le cadavre momifié vient d'être découvert sur les rives du Tibre.

C'est le début d'une descente aux enfers pour Costa et son équipe qui, luttant contre la montre, devront se plonger dans l'étude de cultes secrets et de rituels anciens, à travers l'histoire religieuse et archéologique de Rome, pour mettre la main sur un psychopathe dont l'identité restera un mystère jusqu'au dénouement.
