Förlagstext: When Judge Larocca becomes the subject of corruption allegations,
counsel for the defence Guido Guerrieri goes against his better
instincts and takes the case. Helped by Annapaola Doria, a
motorbike-riding bisexual private detective who keeps a baseball bat to
hand for sticky situations, he investigates the judge’s alleged links to
the mafia. Annapaola makes sure that the truth is discovered, perhaps
not always in the most orthodox way.
This is a suspenseful legal thriller but also a commentary on
judicial ethics in Italy and, in the character of Judge Larocca, a
penetrating meditation on human nature.
