When Douglas Preston moved with his family to Florence, he was stunned to learn that the olive grove next to his villa was the scene of a horrific double murder. He then went on to find that the murders were part of 14 similar murders of young couples with the murderer still at large, who was known as the Monster of Florence. He, with Italian journalist Mario Spezi, then investigated, and confronted the man they believed to be the murderer, all while being under investigation by the Italian police themselves.
