Crimini The Bitter Lemon Book of Italian Crime Fiction

by Niccolo Ammaniti, Andrea Camilleri, Massimo Carlotto

Crimini The Bitter Lemon Book of Italian Crime Fiction Synopsis

Italy's best crime writers present nine gripping, often darkly humorous short-stories with settings ranging from Milan to Palermo by way of Rome and even Guadeloupe. These brilliant tales do not feature psychopathic cannibals or obscure power-mad sects but ordinary criminals: a drug-addled cosmetic surgeon, inept blackmailers and various other low-lifes lusting after easy money.

New York Times'Ammaniti has written a deft masterpiece without a false note.' Michael Dibdin'Camilleri writes with such vigour and wit that he deserves a place alongside Donna leon, along with the additional advantage of an insider's sense of authenticity.' Sunday Telegraph
