"A must read guaranteed to give newbies a clear and complete understanding of the Monster's murders and of the various investigative theories. The book could also be a great reference for “experts” who believe they know everything on the subject, as it uncovers valuable clues and revelations about the murders and the investigations” (Gabriele Basilica, Thriller Magazine).
“Those passionate about true crime stories will certainly appreciate the analysis of the murders of the Monster of Florence. Brunoro and Pezzan write about everything, from Vincenzo Spalletti to the Sardinian Lead, from Pietro Pacciani to the picnicking friends, and finally from the esoteric theory to the Narducci story. A wonderful map to find your way through a deep mystery” (Maurizio Di Giangiacomo , Trentino-Alto Adige).
This is the most detailed storytelling of the crimes of the one that came to be know as "The Monster of Florence". We are talking about an event that has tested all existing criminology theories on serial killers, to the point where we can state that there are traditional crimes, serial killers, and then there is "The Monster of Florence".
The book contains the exclusive interview with director and filmmaker Paolo Cochi, author of the popular documentary “I delitti del Mostro di Firenze” (The murders of the Monster of Florence). Cochi is considered to be one of the most knowledgeable researchers on the case.
