THE POWER OF THE PAST

by Piergiorgio Gay

synopsis

Present-day Italy. Gianni, a forty-year-old writer of children's books, married and the father of a little boy has his life turned upside down when a mysterious stranger tells him that Gianni's late father was not the respectable career military officer everyone thought he was, but a full-blown KGB general and spy.
