Years after receiving the family’s request, a detective from a famed agency arrives in Italy to investigate the disappearance of a Second World War soldier. Almost all the relatives of the man are dead, the witnesses are old and the trail cold… But the P.I. will get to an answer, because every wait needs a conclusion. Maurizio Lacavalla mixes Chandler and De Chirico in a surreal investigation with his evocative black & white pages, rich with atmosphere.
