ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Penelope si sveglia nella casa di uno sconosciuto, dopo l'ennesima notte sprecata. Va via silenziosa e solitaria, attraverso le strade livide dell'autunno milanese. Faceva il pubblico ministero, poi un misterioso incidente ha messo drammaticamente fine alla sua carriera. Un giorno si presenta da lei un uomo che è stato indagato per l'omicidio della moglie. Il procedimento si è concluso con l'archiviazione ma non ha cancellato i terribili sospetti da cui era sorto. L'uomo le chiede di occuparsi del caso, per recuperare l'onore perduto, per sapere cosa rispondere alla sua bambina quando, diventata grande, chiederà della madre. Penelope, dopo un iniziale rifiuto, si lascia convincere dall'insistenza di un suo vecchio amico, cronista di nera. Comincia così un'investigazione che si snoda fra vie sconosciute della città e ricordi di una vita che non torna. Con questo romanzo Gianrico Carofiglio ci consegna una figura femminile dai tratti epici. Una donna durissima e fragile, carica di rabbia e di dolente umanità.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"Penelope's Discipline": An unsolved murder and a man in search of the truth. A tough and fragile woman. The chance to get back into the game. Penelope wakes up in a stranger’s house, after yet another wasted night. She leaves silently and alone, through the livid streets of the autumn in Milan. She used to be a prosecutor, then a mysterious accident dramatically ended her career. One day a man comes to see her, he was investigated for the murder of his wife. The case was dismissed but did not cancel the terrible suspicions from which it had arisen. The man asks her to take over the case and to restore his lost honour. He wants to know what to say to his daughter, a little girl, when she will grow up and enquire about her mother. Penelope, after an initial refusal, lets herself be convinced by the insistence of an old friend of hers, a crime reporter. A breathtaking investigation winds its way through unknown streets of the city and memories of a life that does not return. Gianrico Carofiglio creates a female figure with epic traits. A woman full of anger and painful humanity. A character who remains in our hearts, well beyond the last page and the unexpected ending.
