Read full description of the books:
It starts in the sun, watching ants crawl around a land mine in the middle of the road. Then a voice shocks De Luca back into reality and the air is full of the smell and taste of fear.
This one, whilst still short and gripping and easily read in a day, is more slowly paced. You can almost hear the buzzing of the flies and the heat of the sun. The cool of the shade smells musty. This is the countryside. There's something brutal and basic about it. Evidence of brutal beatings and murder, dry blood. Pigs squeal as they are slaughtered... a chicken is plucked in the sun.
And you're there, with De Luca as he helps find a murderer, himself trying to hide, being hunted (if not for real then with suspicious dark glances... People seem over-friendly, over suspicious... Hands shaking, nose bleeds and fear. Fear permeates. De Luca's fear, the amateur policeman, Leonardo's fear.
And then, when there is no more need for fear because they know who you are it becomes clear...
Carlo Lucarelli is a master. He can do, in one small, lightweight book, easily read in a day, what others take page after page to do. He is a master at writing; nothing is embellished, you see and feel as if you are there: you smell the air, the damp cloying earth; feel the heat; taste the blood and the fear.
And it ends with corpses, you in the back of a lorry, handcuffs...

Read information about the authorLucarelli was born at Parma, the son of a physician. He was interested in literature and theatre when he was young, and studied Literature and History. Nowadays he lives in Mordano near Bologna.
Already in his years of study, during his research for his thesis subject he got in touch with the material for his first two books, which take place during the time of fascism and the years immediately after the war. In Italy he became well known quite soon because of these two books, and it was only a matter of time before he quit his academic activities and turned to his career as an author and all other sorts of activities, such as writing plays, film scenarios, radio-plays and, moreover, singing in a Post-Punk-Band called "Progetto K".
He is a frequently invited moderator on an Italian television programme about crime (Blu notte misteri d'Italia). As a journalist he works for several newspapers and magazines, such as il manifesto, Il Messaggero and L'Europeo. He has written more than twenty novels, including Almost Blue, (City Lights, 2001) and numerous short stories. Together with Marcello Fois and Loriano Macchiavelli he founded "Gruppo 13", a collective of crime-writers in the region Emilia-Romagna.
