Kill The Father by Sandrone Dazieri | Book

Kill The Father Sandrone Dazieri

Kill The Father Sandrone Dazieri

One of my goals for this year was to start reading more and I have set myself a task of one book per month which let's face it is super easy for me! I can inhale a book within a few hours but last year I just couldn't find anything to interest me which is why I have set myself a small achievable goal .

January's book was Kill The Father by Sandrone Dazieri,  to be honest I love crime novels and this one was set in Italy so I got a bit excited and just picked it up. I'm not gonna give spoilers away but I thought I would share with you my overall impression on the book and whether I would actually recommend it. 

Kill The Father follows Colombia Castelli and Dante Torre as they try and track down a psychopath called The Father. Castelli has to enlist the help of Dante who is the only one to escape The Father...I will say no more about the plot for fear of ruining it. As with any crime novels the reader knows there is going to be at least one twist, it's formulaic but that's why I personally love these types of crime novels because if done right it stuns you into questioning everything you believed in the previous chapters. Colombia and Dante are complex characters each with quirks and darkness within them, Dante is the type of character I like to read about because his complexities are layered up into his entire being Dazieri does a fantastic job of making you feel something for this character. Colombia is some badass Deputy Captain who does not take shit, I like the way Dazieri portrays her, he doesn't sexualise her, she is tough and she can throw a punch. I love the way that both the characters blend together with incredibly different personalities but there are two things keeping them tethered together which is the hunt for The Father and their own darkness. 

Personally I loved this book it did have twists, it did keep you guessing! I am looking forward to reading more from this author
