Politics, terror, and spellbinding literary gamesmanship are at the heart of this daring fiction debut. Set in fogbound, wintry Milan, In the Name of Ishmael is the story of a secret cult of assassins and the two detectives who set out to reveal the true identity of Ishmael, the group's heavily protected and enigmatic leader. Expertly weaving a story from apparently unmatched threads in two separate time periods—mysterious murders, a series of seemingly unconnected assassinations, the accident that killed Princess Diana, a bizarre sadomasochistic secret society, and the death of an Italian press magnate—Genna crafts a chilling and utterly compelling tale of political conspiracy and serial murder.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Can stop the reader cold with a single image.” New Yorker
“As Genna spins his linked stories of murder and organized crime, he weaves a web of mind games, trickery and looming threat.” Publishers Weekly
“[A] flawless reading by Grover Gardner, whose pace, nuance, and skill with Italian—and later on with French, German, and Belgian—bespeak an almost native fluency.” AudioFile
“This wildly complex thriller, combining the precision of Day of the Jackal with the eerie paranoia of The Manchurian Candidate, concocts the ultimate conspiracy theory.” Booklist
“Narrator Gardner demonstrates considerable competence and generates substantial excitement in his reading of this gripping mystery.” American Library Association
