Tripoli, 1960s: During the years in which post-colonial Libya fell prey to the sprawling greed of the West, Michele Balistreri suffered a succession of blows that would scar him for life. The death of his mother; the unspeakable horror that befell his best friend's family; his father's role in Gaddafi's ascent to power; and the innocent blood pact that would corrupt the course of his future.
On 11 July, 1982, Elisa Sordi was beautiful. Commissario Michele Balistreri was fearless. Italy was victorious. A killer was waiting.... On 9 July, 2006, with Sordi’s case 24 years cold, and Balistreri haunted by guilt and regret, Italian victory returned. And so did Sordi’s killer.... But this time Michele Balistreri would be ready. This time he would fear no evil.
