Two foreign girls are abducted from a Florence piazza in broad daylight. The unusual March snowfall has distracted everyone, even Marshal Guarnaccia, who is unsure of what he has actually witnessed. One of the girls turns up in a village in the Chianti, claiming the kidnappers have released her to propose a ransom for the other victim. But the marshal thinks she’s lying. Italian law forbids paying ransom to criminals, and the marshal must find the second girl before her kidnappers decide to end her life. From the Trade Paperback edition.

At precisely nine o'clock, as he did every evening, Don Sebastiano Sanna Carboni pushed back his armchair, carefully folded the newspaper which he had read to the very last line, tidied up the little things on his desk, and prepared to go down to the ground floor... Around the turn of the twentieth century, in the isolated Sardinian town of Nuoro, the aristocratic notary Don Sebastiano Sanna reflects on his life, his family's history and the fortunes of this provincial backwater where he has lived out his days.

Michel Comte has established himself as one of the foremost contemporary fashion photographers. In the midst of all his achievements, he has never lost sight of what motivates his work: a ceaseless curiosity about people. A journey to Tibet in 1986 marked the beginning of his work as a photojournalist, and he has since traveled to China, Egypt, the Sudan and Cuba. In 1991, during the war in the Persian Gulf, he toured Jordan and Israel. He has also dedicated himself to recording the works of the International Committee of the Red Cross and recent trips have taken him to Iraq, Pakistan, Haiti, Bosnia, and Afghanistan. This carefully composed book, developed in cooperation with the Red Cross, is the first to exclusively feature his reportage photography. These extraordinary images capture the vulnerability of the human soul, and vividly reveal more about fear and hope than any amount of words ever could.
