The Gorilla is back

The Gorilla has suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder since childhood but he’s been able to conceal it and make it through life unscathed. Up until ten years ago, when he got shot in the head. And now his two personalities could’t be more different. Returning to Milan for a friend’s funeral, the Gorilla gets tangled up in a case of arson.

A legendary character in Italy’s noir genre, he is back with a bang, on a journey into the darkest night that reveals the schizofrenia of these sick times disguised by sparkling promises, but still sullied by the same old injustices. The Gorilla is a serial character, but Sandrone wrote the book in such a way that this is a real new start, which is good for every reader.
