1945, Lake Como. Mussolini and his mistress are captured by local partisans and shot in a summary execution. The precise circumstances of Il Duces death remain shrouded in confusion and controversy.

1992, Milan. Colonna, a depressed writer picking up hack work, is offered a fee he cant refuse to ghost-write a memoir. His subject: a fledgling newspaper, which happens to be financed by a powerful media magnate. As Colonna gets to know the team of journalists, he learns the paranoid theories of Braggadocio who is convinced that Mussolinis corpse was a body-double and part of a wider Fascist plot. Its the scoop he desperately needs. The evidence? Hes working on it.

Colonna is sceptical. But when a body is found, stabbed to death in a back alley and the paper is shut down, even he is jolted out of his complacency.

Fuelled by media hoaxes, Mafiosi, love, gossip and murder, NUMERO ZERO reverberates with the clash of the cynical forces that have shaped Italy since the last days of World War II. This gripping story from the author of THE NAME OF THE ROSE is told with all the power of a master storyteller.
Umberto Eco has written works of fiction, literary criticism and philosophy. His first novel, The Name of the Rose, was a major international bestseller. His other works include Foucault's Pendulum, The Island of the Day Before, Baudolino, The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana and The Prague Cemetery, along with many brilliant collections of essays
