CARLO LUCARELLI ALMOST BLUE PDF

I think it is a better book but I read it a while ago. Rob - Thanks for this review. It's always a balance, isn't it, between too much padding and not enough backstory Great review, thanks! I loved the "getting on with it" bare bones aspect of the book, I have to say, but then I think I read it after a massive, padded doorstop of the latest Eliz George so that may be part of the reason.

FANTASMAS DEAN R.KOONTZ PDF

As translated from Lucarelli's original by ALTA Fellow Award winner Oona Stransky, this psychological thriller is characterised by unique, quirky characters and gorgeous verbal detail. However, while racing toward the denouement, you'll want to linger with the multiple-sense first-person descriptions; to turn pages back to re-examine clues -- and not only the clues to the mystery. Eschewing the whodunit format, Lucarelli uses a triptych of first-person narrators: the detective, the witness, and the murderer. The detective, Inspettore Grazia Negro, is a hard-boiled noir type whose resolve might make Sam Spade feel nervous. She is also the only woman in the homicide unit, which is housed, ironically, in an archaic disused monastery. Underestimated by coworkers who assume competence and beauty don't come in the same female body, the Inspettore knows that looks can deceive -- and the policemen aren't the only ones taken in by their assumptions.
