by Giorgio Scerbanenco

An engrossing novel of revenge that moves backwards and forwards through the decades of the mid 20th century to its amazingly unpredictable ending.
You can keep your Scandi noir whilst I add another author to my list of brilliant Mediterranean authors.


'You just have to take me to where your friend is now.' He took her arm and helped her up. 'You can't tell me much, but your friend can tell me a lot more, and your friend's friends even more. Where is he?'
The quarter litre and more of alcohol that she had drunk at only 10.30 in the morning had not had any effect on her, she must be armour plated.
