The second installment in the critically acclaimed trilogy featuring Superintendent Teresa Battaglia.

A bizarre cold case has landed on Superintendent Teresa Battaglia’s desk. DNA analysis has revealed that a portrait from the final days of World War II was painted with matter from a human heart. The evidence leads Teresa to Val Resia, one of the most untouched regions in Italy and a bubble of shockingly well-preserved genetic matter from four centuries past.

When Teresa’s investigation comes too close to the truth, another human heart is hung at the entrance of the valley, a warning not to cross its threshold. Meanwhile, Teresa must not only deal with her progressing illness, but also someone she hoped she would never have to see again—a man who is now her new boss.

“Ms. Tuti’s debut, translated from the Italian by Ekin Oklap, introduces a sympathetic heroine in Battaglia, whose gruffness masks a fear she may be losing her unique abilities. ”
