Manu Manu is already deceased at the beginning of the novel, and the story follows Fabio, a policeman as he avenges his two friends. He was involved romantically with Lole. Fabio Montale Fabio Montale is “the perfect protagonist in this city of melancholy beauty. A disenchanted cop with an inimitable talent for living who turns his back on a police force marred by corruption and racism and, in the name of friendship, takes the fight against the mafia into his own hands” Lole Lole is the gypsy love interest of the now deceased Manu and Ugo. She is described in the novel as “Her hands deep in the pockets of a straw-coloured bathrobe. The colour made her skin look browner than usual and emphasized the blackness of her hair, which she was wearing short now. Her hips may have grown thicker, he wasn't sure. She'd become a woman, but she hadn't changed. Lole, the gypsy. She'd always been beautiful.”
