Summaries and Reviews
Biding his time on a routine assignment in remote Calabria, Aurelio Zen finds himself investigating the sudden disappearance of an advance scout for an American film company, in a case that enmeshes him in the centuries-old secrets of the tight-knit local community, a code of silence hiding the truth about a brutal murder, and a hunt for long-lost treasure. 20,000 first printing. description: Product Description: The final installment in this award-winning series brings Italian police detective Aurelio Zen to remote Calabria, where the Venice-born-and-bred detective feels uncomfortably like a foreigner.

It’s a routine assignment, and Aurelio Zen is biding his time in Calabria while the locals go about their mysterious business. Routine, that is, until an advance scout for an American film company suddenly vanishes. Beneath the surface of a tight-knit traditional community--with secrets and loyalties that go back centuries--violent forces are at work. Zen is determined to find a way to penetrate the code of silence and uncover the truth behind a brutal murder. However, his mission is complicated by another secret that has drawn strangers from the other side of the world on a hunt for buried treasure–a search that has been launched by a single-minded player with millions to spend pursuing a bizarre and deadly obsession.

It’s a devilishly suspenseful and entertaining adventure that only Aurelio Zen could stumble into--and only Michael Dibdin could serve up. In End Games, the award-winning author has crafted a suspenseful, action-packed thriller full of unexpected twists and turns--a story that takes us deep into a proud and ancient culture and into the darkest corners of the human heart.
