Praise for the Rocco Schiavone Mysteries:
`At last a detective who's not haunted by personal demons or soaked in booze - but who glories in his job of solving crimes. He would not be out of place in a James Ellroy masterpiece. The tale is deftly told with sharp, cynical dialogue. Let's hear more of Schiavone' Daily Mail
`An Italian detective to rival Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano' GQ
`An arresting murder mystery' Monocle
`Diamond-hard crime writing ... this is lacerating stuff' Barry Forshaw, Financial Times
