A murder in Limone, and of a policeman at that! An affront to Commissario Fabio Angelotti, who does everything in his power to catch the culprit—and not just for the sake of the beautiful widow.
Great excitement has taken hold of the picturesque town of Limone: a German detective, of all people, is shot dead during his Lake Garda vacation with his wife Charlotte. For Commissario Fabio Angelotti, the local lead investigator, solving the murder of his holidaying colleague as quickly as possible is a matter of honor. But besides that, the enchanting green eyes of the widow are also a great source of motivation. Without much ado, he begins the investigation with her help. And soon it becomes clear that Charlotte’s husband was researching an unsolved case from the Mussolini era. But what is the secret he was closing in on? And was it really his probing investigation that was his undoing?
With an infallible sense for the nepotism of times gone by, Angelotti retraces the investigation of his murdered colleague—and eventually must search for the beautiful Charlotte, who suddenly seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth.
