This first instalment in the enormously successful De Luca Trilogy is set in the final days of WW2.
In addition to being a first-rate thriller, it is a compelling look at a very particular moment in Italian history. Lucarelli's sharp, incisive writing perfectly renders the period and the characters. De Luca, with his shoulder-shrugging, hip lip-biting and his perennial insomnia, is an ordinary man caught in extraordinary times; his insouciance is a perfect antidote to the era's fanaticism.

She only has one witness who can identify the killer - and he is blind. Simone spends his nights listening to Chet Baker and scanning the radio waves of the city, eavesdropping on other people's lives. He imagines what people are like - based on the 'colour' of their voice - and his acute hearing sets alarm bells ringing when he tunes in to the killer. Together Simone and Negro are the only people able to stop the killer, before he closes in on Simone. From the diverse perspectives of the detective, the blind Simone and the killer, Lucarelli, master of Italian noir, weaves a gripping thriller.

A professional killer is at large in the cities of Italy, Code-named “Pit Bull,” he is a master of disguise and an expert with weapons. He modifies his guns and his bullets are untraceable.
His skill with prosthetics, wigs and makeup means that no two victims witness the same terrifying final vision. This is a hunt for a man with no face. Only the picture of a pit bull terrier left behind at each murder can link the crimes. Day after day, Ispettore Negro works on her seemingly impossible case. But when a young man unwittingly encounters Pit Bull in an Internet chat room, he provides Negro with the clue that could lead her to her target.

He does not quite understand the quirky welcoming gifts from the locals, but nothing stands in the way of his quest for justice - and pastries. Lucarelli brings us a far darker story. Judge Valentina Lorenzi - La Bambina - is so young and inexperienced she hardly merits a bodyguard.
But when she barely survives an assassin's bullet, her black-and-white world of crime and punishment turns a deathly shade of grey. In The Triple Dream of the Prosecutor, De Cataldo, a judge himself, crafts a Kafkaesque tale of a lifelong feud between Prosecutor Mandati and the corrupt Mayor of Novere. When the mayor narrowly escapes a series of bizarre assassination attempts, Mandati begins to realise that all his dreams may just be coming true. From Italy's premiere crime authors, three novellas from every tradition of crime writing. Free download adobe photoshop cs 8 portable band.

In Ferengi, Carlo Lucarelli explores the Italian settlement of Eritrea a century ago, when the actions of a maid became pivotal to the fate of an exploitative colonial family. Valeria Parrella's The Prize, set in the Italian countryside during the Second World War, reminds us that revenge is a dish best served cold, while Piero Colaprico's Stairway C is a breathless Milanese crime novel in miniature.
Grassroots writers' collective Wu Ming show how an Italian cheese-maker can become a hero in American Parmesan, and in Another Kind of Solitude, Simona Vinci suggests that it is only when we are on the outside, or alone, that we find true freedom.
