Three wild murders
Florence (h. 1.55 PM), London (h. 10.30 AM)
New Haven (h. 9.30 AM)
What connection do they share and what is the reason? Scotland Yard, FBI, Interpol grope in the dark. Only Elda Novelli, an Italian Postal Inspector of Police, manages to grasp the long and intricate fiber optic internet connections, the link that unites them. The victims were about to reveal the true, shocking content of the dark Voynich manuscript, which for a century has resisted any attempt of interpretation. But the inspector will be able to decrypt it, following the tracks left by the three researchers killed. The discoveries are frightening: the current crimes are connected with some excellent death of the early twentieth century. The author, in his impetuous narrative spiral, with his relentless flashbacks and the plot twists, gives rise to Wilfrid Voynich, an ambiguous owner of that mysterious parchment: behind the facade of antiquarian books, in fact, he sent criminal messages in his papers. How, to whom and why? What relevance is there with the tragedy of the Titanic? And why today a fierce brotherhood prohibits the disclosure of the truth, sowing corpses?
Aldo Gritti, in a revolutionary "digging" of human archeology, lays bare the treachery of Voynich so far hidden in a dusty volume and in the pages of his provocative work presented as a medieval code. It offers us a dazzling thriller interweaving challenging the reader to recognize where reality arrives and where imagination begins.
