Introduction

(In 2000, Douglas Preston, the New York Times bestselling author of Blasphemy, fulfilled a lifelong dream when he moved his family to a stone farmhouse in Italy. Tucked into the side of a hill, his Tuscan home seemed like paradise on earth until he discovered that it had a dark past: the olive grove next to his home was the scene of a horrific double homicide by one of the most infamous figures in Italian history. Intrigued, Preston teamed up with celebrated journalist Mario Spezi in order to learn more about the murderera still-at-large serial killer known as the Monster of Florence who ritually murdered 14 young lovers and carved up their bodies with unbelievable cruelty. This volume chronicles their chilling investigationand reveals how they got a lot more than they bargained for when their cold case turned white hot. Before they were done, they would become prime suspects in the police investigation...and would come face-to-face with the man they believe is the true killer. With the gripping suspense of Prestons bestselling novels, The Monster of Florence tells a remarkable true story of murder, mutilation, suicide and vengeancewith Preston and Spezi caught in the middle.
