Politics, terror, and spellbinding literary gamesmanship are at the heart of this daring fiction debut.

Set in fogbound, wintry Milan, In the Name of Ishmael is the story of a secret cult of assassins and the two detectives who set out to reveal the true identity of Ishmael, the group's heavily protected and enigmatic leader.

Expertly weaving a story from apparently unmatched threads in two separate time periods—mysterious murders, a series of seemingly unconnected assassinations, the accident that killed Princess Diana, a bizarre sadomasochistic secret society, and the death of an Italian press magnate—Genna crafts a chilling and utterly compelling tale of political conspiracy and serial murder.
