A savage and complex thriller 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 truth about Ishmael, the group's heavily protected and enigmatic leader. Expertly weaving apparently unmatched threads in two separate time periods - mysterious child murders, a series of seemingly unconnected assassinations, the accident that killed Princess Diana, a disturbing society of sadomasochists, and the death of an Italian press magnate - Genna crafts a chilling and utterly compelling tale of political conspiracy and serial murder. Terror and spellbinding literary gamesmanship are at the heart of this daring fiction debut. In the Name of Ishmael is a gripping whodunit and stunning work of literary fiction.
Giuseppe Genna was born in Milan in 1969. He has worked in Italian television and was the editor-in-chief of Poesia, a literary journal. In the Name of Ishmael (Atlantic 2004) was his first UK publication.
