La costante

La costante


A mystery novel in the world of astrophysics, where between secrets and abuses, old resentments and hidden passions, each character will influence somehow the destiny of the other.

During the celebration for the tenth year anniversary of Professor Alberto Ferrante’s departure, three of his most brilliant pupils came back to the CERN of Ginevra: Oleg Wildman, Katherine Holloway and Eric Hartway. Hartway is the real superstar of the celebration, because of his worldwide fame and the nominee for the Nobel Prize. Just before the meeting, Natalia Volkov, one of the students of the research centre, meets a strange figure. The next morning, Hartway was found dead in the former office of Professor Ferrante, with Natalia. They had never seen each other until the previous evening and between their two murders do not seem to be any connection. The young chief of police Filippo La Roche is in charge of the investigation and he will try to shed some light on the complex personality of Eric Hartway, finding more than just one secret on the Professor’s life. At the same time, he will have to cope with his lack of experience and the insufficient trust of his co-workers. An unexpected help will arrive for him to close the case.
