Equal Danger, Paperback Book

Description

District Attorney Varga is shot dead while picking a sprig of jasmine.

Then Judge Sanza is killed. Then Judge Azar. Is this string of murders an individual vendetta or a more sinister plot?

The charming Inspector Rogas is determined to find out.

The pursuit of truth and justice are Rogas's vocation, but his work is frustrated by a system which defies his understanding.

He needs a key, a way in, a map, and he is sure that his chief suspect Cres can provide it...The book, written in 1971, uncannily prefigures the Red Brigade's subsequent killing of magistrates and the Catholic-Communist pact of the late 1970s in Italy.

Developed under Sciascia's hand in the spirit of a parody, Equal Danger has come to be regarded as a wide-ranging political thriller, one of the masterpieces of the genre.
