Product description


Described with lucidity [and] meticulously researched. The Namesake is never boring or difficult. It is worth the attention (The Times)

Alec Blume is an inspired creation. An American who has become a commissioner in the Italian police, he's a sly, sardonic loner who gives the impression of knowing Rome better than its natives. [...] Fitzgerald is an elegant, visual writer (Guardian)

The American-born Blume is an engaging hero who might just have to potential to fill the gap left when Michael Dibdin's death ended his Italian detective Aurelio Zen's investigations (Sunday Times)

I'm putting my money on Alec Blume becoming the most popular detective of the coming decade (Belfast Telegraph)

A powerful and hugely compelling thriller. Dark, worldly and written with tremendous style and assurance (William Boyd on The Dogs of Rome)

Book Description

'An inspired creation', 'An engaging hero', 'The most popular detective of the coming decade' - Alec Blume is back
