Book Description

April 2005

A thrilling crime novel set deep in the criminal underworld - a murky tale of drugs, human trafficking and Mafia families.

When Colombian Arias Cuevas is caught trying to smuggle drugs through Venice airport, his fear isn't fueled by the idea of prison. He's much more frightened of his aunt - it was her coke he took off with. The cops set up a sting to find out who was to be the recipient of the drugs, and art smuggler Nazzareno Corradi falls straight into the trap - but he's been set up. His lawyer hires our hero, the Alligator, and his fixer, Max, to find out what's going on.

Soon we see why Cuevas was so afraid - the aunt, La Tia, has left a bloody trail in her wake, now looking to do some business in Italy, and she's not about to let anybody get in her way.

The case brings the Alligator into contact with a whole host of devious, double-bluffing characters, and pushes him into a position where he may have to cross one moral line too far.

Product Description


He has been dubbed Italy's greatest crime writer ... Carlotto's books are as interesting as the man himself. His latest story of prostitution, drugs dealers and corruption gives us an indication of why he is so highly regarded. (IRISH EXAMINER)

All in all a jolly romp, expertly translated from the Italian by Christopher Woodall, who manages to preserve the ambiance of seediness that this tale surely possessed in the orginal. (IRISH TIMES) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Set in and around Venice, a pacy, witty, crime thriller - an Italian Pulp Fiction - by 'probably the best living Italian crime writer' (Il Manifesto) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like crime thrillers... 2 Feb 2009
By Jim
If you like British and American crime thrillers then you'll like this too. While violent it is not blood and guts but something much colder, and more cynical. If you think British and American writers are sometimes cynical about their police then it's nothing compared to this, and some other Italian writers have the same love for the forces of the Italian state. There is a moral heart to this book but it is shadowed by the despair of the characters for themselves, for their country, for the world.
It's got a good plot too.

2.0 out of 5 stars BISH BASH BELLISIMO 7 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A macho tale of corrupt officials and connected tough guys - I struggled with the implausibilities of Italian manhood and pitied the women portrayed - not really my style, in future I'll stick to Jean Claude IZZO.
