Roman Roulette: Murder in the Catacombs, the Second Daria Vinci Investigation.
For Commissioner Daria Vinci, it was supposed to be a night off, attending a benefit concert for the Institute of America in Rome. But little did the distinguished guests know that beneath their feet, in the ancient catacombs, a very different kind of gathering was being held. One that would end in murder. In Roman Roulette, the second Daria Vinci investigation, the glamorous and high-principled police commissioner of DIGOS, Italy’s FBI, must investigate what at first seems a simple case of suicide. In doing so, she attracts the attention of her boss, the Questor of the Province of Rome, who has his own reasons for wanting her off the case. Now, Daria Vinci must solve the murder in 36 hours, while risking her career and, possibly, her life.
Praise for Daria Vinci Investigation: Roman Roulette
This follow-up to Red Riviera (2021), the first book of the Daria Vinci Investigation series, abounds with quirky, memorable characters. Wonderfully detailed tour of Rome...a treat for those who would love a Roman holiday.
More than an intriguing mystery, Roman Roulette is a commentary on the differences and parallels between American and Italian politics and culture. Fans of crime fiction informed by headline news will find much to savor in these pages.
— E.A. Aymar, author of The Unrepentant and No Home for Killers
In Roman Roulette, David Downie takes readers into the sumptuous and sordid culture of modern day Rome. Evoking echoes of Italy’s Cold War past, Downie spins a tale as dark and twisting as the catacombs that snake beneath the Eternal City.
— Patricia Bracewell, author of the Emma of Normandy Trilogy
