This volume brings together the stories published in different anthologies of this publishing house, starting from "New Year in yellow". Collected together, they allow you to reconstruct what can be called the backth of the Vicequestore Rocco Schiavone. A policeman anything but goodist, rather eccentric as the crime enemy. In the morning, a spinel lights up to give himself; When it happens, he does not disdain a few horns with the stern of a foiled blow; He is rough with everyone, brutal with bad guys, impatient with women. Nevertheless, those who read the adventures of him would like him. By punishment, the commands will move it to the snow of Aosta, where the novels that have given him so much notoriety are set. Meanwhile, in the stories of this volume, we meet him before the forced move. He knows he is about to say goodbye to the loved city, but he does not know what he is the destiny of him. In this uncertainty, the past holds it from each part by carving the pessimism of him, feeding the melancholy of him. He runs Rome, familiar places, old knowledge, while in the phase of him he senses unpaid solutions to criminal puzzles. And these always have darkness wallpapers. So much so that the faults of him appear the other face, necessarily antirethical, of the medal of the living piety for derelicts and the great pain that once led him to the heart. In short, he looks like a kind of fallen angel.
