The Day of the Knights is a modern epic of evil versus good spanning more than two decades in Italy and America, climaxing on 9/11. It pits religious fanatic homophobic serial killer Domenico Patriani, who becomes a church deacon, versus inner city policeman Thomas "Tank" Tooley, who becomes a firefighter and investigative reporter on the hunt. Sub-stories provide warm counterpoints and show how the moral compasses of the savant killer and noble hero were forged. The book opens in the Italian Alps, Turin and Rome, then moves to the Bronx, Chelsea and Ground Zero in Manhattan, with vivid episodes in Vatican City and major churches, museums and libraries. Debates about religion and homosexuality are based on biblical text, and insights on criminal profiling and psychological analysis of serial killers are based on actual cases.
