Book Review

-| Audiobook Review… Kill The Father |-

So I’m finally posting my review for the first book in the Colomba Caselli series by Sandrone Dazieri, it was originally published in Italian and then translated, I listened to the audiobook on Scribd.
Let’s jump in…

‘The rock cast a sharp, dark shadow over a shape huddled on the ground. Please don’t let it be the boy, Colomba thought. Her silent prayer didn’t go unanswered. The corpse belonged to the mother.’
Dante Torre spent eleven young years in captivity – held by a man known only as The Father – before outwitting his abductor. Now working for the police force, Torre’s methods are unorthodox but his brilliance is clear. When a young child goes missing in similar circumstances in Rome, Torre must confront the demons of his past to attempt to solve the case.
Paired with Deputy Captain Colomba Caselli, a fierce, warrior-like detective still reeling from having survived a bloody catastrophe, all evidence suggests The Father is active after being dormant for decades, and that he’s looking forward to a reunion with Dante… 

Of course I will be keeping this review brief, I’m not going in depth into the plot as that would spoil the whole book.

Kill The Father is action packed and at times heart breaking to listen to.
I Really enjoyed the characters of Colomba and Torre, they are strangers forced together to find a child who’s mother was killed and father is the main suspect. Torre is trying to lead a “normal” life after being held captive as a child for 11 years, while Colomba is on administrative leave from an incident that put her in the hospital. Mental health plays a big role with our two main characters, especially PTSD and anxiety, it was portrayed in a way that I’ve never seen before and I know a lot of people would relate to.

The complex and layered plot really captured my attention and made me want to take my dog on longer walks just to keep listening. The only reason I couldn’t rate this the full 5 is that I felt there was just a little too much happening, this book could have still been just as tense and thrilling without throwing in too many obstacles to overcome.

This was a really strong start to a series and I’m looking forward to listening to the next one.

See you guys in the next one…
