In uno scenario in cui le vite dei protagonisti non mostrano alcun legame apparente, emergono verità nascoste che annodano l’uno agli altri. Le vesti ipocrite indossate da ciascuno di loro, vanno lentamente a dissiparsi con l’omicidio di una giovane psicologa, mostrando le meschinità che li rendono al contempo vittime e artefici di indicibili misfatti. Due sorelle, una cop ...more

Una storia avvincente e ambiziosa, un giallo complesso, dalla costruzione insolita: inizia con l'omicidio di una psicologa che lavora in un centro di recupero, prosegue con la narrazione delle vicende che si sono svolte nei giorni precedenti il delitto per concludersi con il racconto delle le indagini. I personaggi coinvolti sono parecchi e molti di loro ruotano intorno al centro di recupero; lo svelarsi dei rapporti che li collegano dà origine a ripetuti colpi di scena.
Qualche refuso e una scr

An exciting interminling of thrilling plots, with several interlaced mysteries, all centered around a rehab clinic and the people who work there. Translated from Italian, it has a few minor mistakes, but it's made up for with a thrilling story. A bit slow paced to begin with, it still managed to keep me on the edge of my seat till the end, until all the plots finally came together to reveal the motivation behind them all.

Many unthinkable things in life connect us to many people. A lot of people carry malice within our hearts and heads. Lives turn dramatic changing us in many ways. This book was full of suspense. I would definitely recommend this book to others if they want to read a good thriller.

Una lettura completa che va al di là del genere giallo. In effetti è un po’ restrittivo definirlo solo thriller, visto che si tratta di un’opera di narrativa psicologica con delitto al centro.
Si nota una grande varietà di personaggi, una storia che non smette di sorprendere, una trama avvincente che va in un crescendo, una maschera psicologica per ogni protagonista molto ben costruita.Non ci si annoia leggendolo e non si smette di seguire con interesse l’evoluzione dell’indagine, nonostante si c

La vicenda narrata ne “L’ombra del castigo” ruota intorno al centro recupero tossicodipendenti “VitaNuova”; l’omicidio della giovane psicologa Rosa scatena una serie di altri delitti, apparentemente slegati fra loro, ma che invece derivano dai complicati legami delle persone in gioco. Solo la determinazione e la sagacia del commissario Nardi (figura ben disegnata e realistica), e dei suoi assistenti, riuscirà a far luce su fatti che, altrimenti, rimarrebbero oscuri.
L’intreccio, molto ben costrui

Molto bello. Anche se la storia parte un po’ lenta, tiene un ritmo incalzante grazie al giusto dosaggio delle scene. Quando poi le strade dei protagonisti si incrociano si entra in una spirale di intrighi che portano a ripetuti colpi di scena. Mai banale, ben scritto e carico di suspense, si legge con piacere.

Un romanzo ben costruito, con approfondimento psicologico dei personaggi e opportuni colpi di scena. Buon editing e ottima qualità. Ancora una conferma che il Self publishing può generare contenuti di alto valore.

Devo confessarlo, non sono un lettore assiduo di libri gialli ma questo mi ha incuriosito da subito! Storia molto ben studiata con personaggi ben costruiti come la vecchietta impicciona. Ne consiglio la lettura.

L’ombra del castigo invece è un romanzo a metà tra il thriller e il giallo.
Subito si apre con un omicidio, ma poi nei capitoli seguenti in pratica viene narrata tutta la situazione precedente che ha portato a quell’omicidio: vengono presentati molti personaggi – tra cui la vittima –, le loro vite, i loro problemi, i vari intrighi e le relazioni (anche segrete) che li collega uno all’altro.
Alla fine della prima parte si scopre l’identità dell’assassino… e personalmente non l’avrei mai detto, avev

Libro molto scorrevole con colpi di scena imprevisti.
Un libro che non vedi l'ora di finire ma vorresti che non finisse mai

Full disclosure: I won an e-copy of this book, with the intent of reading and writing an honest review.

I don’t like not finishing a book; it just makes me feel all wrong. But after 16% I can’t read any further. I’m not connected to the characters - they feel flat and aren’t interesting to me. Grammatical and spelling errors detract from the story - and a scene that’s too graphic for my liking - I’m done. I’m sorry - I was looking forward to reading a book from another part of the world but I fo
