Flowers Over the Inferno by Ilaria Tuti
This mystery is translated from the Italian. It is set in the Italian Alps amid a close knit village who keep secrets. Hard nosed detective Battaglia is called to investigate when a body turns up in the forest minus his eyeballs. More people are assaulted and die from body parts that are taken, but what is the connection between these victims? Who or what in the forest is doing this and is there a connection to a school that was an orphanage where supposed experiments have taken place on small children decades ago? A very interesting and different mystery in a special setting.
