June 2010 Debut of the Month.

This gem of a thriller was originally published in Italian in 2002 where it sold over 3 million copies (stand aside Dan Brown) and with its complex, pacey and at times rather story you can see why. Set in Monte Carlo it all centres around a killer who uses the local radio station to announce his murderous intentions. It’s a perfect summer read.

If you like Giorgio Faletti you might also like to read books by Karen Rose, Tess Gerritsen and Jack Kerley.

Synopsis

I Kill by Giorgio Faletti

The voice on the radio. The writing, red as blood. I kill ...A detective and an FBI agent embark upon the most harrowing case of their careers as they attempt to track down an enigmatic killer in this relentlessly suspenseful thriller. The killer announces his heinous acts in advance with desperate phone calls and ties his crimes together with songs that point to his victims; he then mutilates them and removes their faces. Set in Monte Carlo and featuring an international cast of intriguing characters, the hunt for the deranged perpetrator remains gripping and unsettling, possibly even more so, after the killer's identity is revealed and the detectives must close in on their target before he strikes again.

Reviews

The best selling first novel by Giorgio Faletti ... has been defined as a masterpiece and Faletti himself as the best living Italian writer. Corriere della Sera In my neck of the woods, people like Faletti are called larger than life, living legends. -- Jeffery Deaver I Kill is one of those bestsellers that proceeds at a cracking pace and presses all the right buttons with clinical efficiency. Giorgio Faletti's thriller is set in Monte Carlo, home to so many obnoxious millionaires and their trophy girlfriends that what the city really needs is a serial killer. Enter just such a killer .. The writing has no great literary pretentions, but then it does not have to. The plot is the thing. Sunday Telegraph Presses all the right buttons Sunday Telegraph Publishing sensation Financial Times
