Evil doesn't allow itself breaks even in May. On the seafront of Posillipo an elderly priest is found, barbarously killed. He is inexplicable, because Father Angelo was loved by all. A saint, they say. A fine theologian, a man who has given comfort to many people in his life. And Ricciardi is more restless than ever. He and Enrica have begun to meet, but the commissioner can't keep hiding his nature from her, the secret that has long kept him away from her.

The "Armisanti", literally "Holy Souls", are the spirits venerated by an ancient Sicilian popular belief. The damned were prayed for, those who in life had shed blood and suffering in the world. Bernardo Provenzano, Tommaso Buscetta, Nino Madonia, Matteo Messina Denaro: even the bosses of Cosa Nostra can be "Armisanti". According to the old cult, they will forever remain trapped among us, awaiting redemption. As well as the spirits of their victims who, instead, await justice. They are ordinary people, like all of us.

It's not just any murder that the commissioner finds himself investigating in the torrid July of 1934. The dead man is the man who almost took away his hope of a future; the prime suspect, a woman who desires him with inexhaustible passion. Thus, before definitively discovering whether ahead of him, waiting for him, there is a perennial night or if every day dawn will come with his promises, he must once again, more than ever, face evil.
