Valerio Varesi has been the Parma correspondent for La Stampa and La Repubblica. River of Shadows is the first of a series of thrillers featuring Commissario Soneri, now the central figure of one of Italy's most popular television dramas. Joseph Farrell has translated several major Italian authors, including Dario Fo.
Shortlisted for the CWA International Dagger 2011. A tense noir set in the dark and foggy hinterland of the River Po, a tough area of Italy as yet undiscovered by an English audience. CWA Judges’ comments: ‘Unlike most police procedurals, the detective, Soneri, plays second fiddle to an evocation of the hard lives lived on and near the Po, from the history of dangers survived during the bitter internal battles of the Second World War, to contemporary criminal people-smuggling, with the river’s own threat of flood and destruction.’
