The Lost Daughter By Lucretia Grindle
Saturday 29 September 2012
Mixing fact and fiction, Grindle's latest Italinate thriller moves between present day Tuscany and 1970s Rome.
When American student, Kristen, goes missing from a Florentine street, the city's most senior policeman is baffled. But not long after, her stepmother, Anna, also vanishes. A woman with a past, it emerges that 30 years previously Anna was recruited by the Red Brigades to cook for the recently kidnapped moderate, Aldo Moro. This absorbing tale of betrayed loyalties tenderly captures the emotional pressures that led a butcher's daughter into the heart of a terrorist cell.
