From one of the 20th century's most acclaimed and popular authors.
At high noon on a hot summer’s day, a beautiful young woman shoots the mayor dead.
So begins a story of passion and betrayal in a quiet Tuscan village, leading to a sensational trial. The defence team, headed by the brilliant but unhappy Carlo Rienzi, uncovers a sinister conspiracy of silence that threatens to split the community.
Can Carlo persuade the judge to grant clemency in what appears to be an open-and-shut case? Can the law intervene in the brutal tradition of vendetta?
An international best seller, Daughter of Silence is a gripping novel with a masterful twist at the end.
"Powerful and authentic." (The Daily Telegraph)
