Good Master, what shall I do that I may receive life everlasting?

And Jesus said to him:

Why callest thou me good? None is good but one, that is God.

(Mark 10:17.18)

When the apparently mild-mannered retired teacher Domenico Stasi learns that a former student of his is being held as a suspected terrorist he seeks her out to assure himself of her innocence, to convince himself that his teachings have not contributed to the creation of a monster. But she proudly declares her guilt. What.s more, she entrusts him with a task that initially seems a child.s game but soon becomes much more serious. Now someone is watching Domenico Stasi. And the mysterious .contact. to whom his former student directed him has a gun for Stasi and instructions to kill a man. A deadly game has been put into play.nothing can stop its course. But is everything what it appears to be? Who is Domenico Stasi: killer, victim, or hapless fall guy? The writer himself is the demiurge of this story, but perhaps he too is implicated in the imminent crime. Only one thing is certain: no one here is innocent.
