Anyone age 18 or older is welcome to attend. The book club meets monthly at the Southwest Branch Library. For more information, please call 407.835.7323 or email southwest@ocls.info

Discussion Questions
If you are unable to attend the meeting or you would like to join our discussion, you can share your thoughts or respond to the discussion questions below. Simply click "Comments" located at the bottom of this post. Join the discussion!

1. Do you think Preston and Spezi's suspect is the monster? Why or why not?

2. If not, is there another person in the book you think may be the monster?

3. The authors' mention a Italian cultural more- dietrologia, the idea that the obvious thing cannot be the truth. Discuss how this impacted the investigation.

4. Preston comments on the book's web site Italy's great wealth and power seem to have brought with it a spiritual and ethical malaise - saving face, cutting a good figure and advancing one's career. These symptoms of malaise trump the plodding and unglamorous search for the truth. In his opinion, the book is not only about a serial killer or a bungled investigation, it's a book about modern Italy itself. Do you agree with Preston's comments? Why or why not?
