Death in August: A Novel

'“Over the course of his police procedurals, Vichi shows us ever more secret and dark sides to an otherwise sunny and open city. But his happiest creation, in my opinion, remains the character of Inspector Bordelli, a disillusioned anti-hero who is difficult to forget.” —Andrea Camilleri “Three cheers for an absolute delight! The strength of the novel is the in-depth portrayal of the characters, particularly Bordelli himself—eccentric, obstinate, generous, and sad. The descriptions of the sounds and smells of the Tuscan summer are so vivid that you think they are real. The food is to die for. I can’t wait to read the next one.” —www.shotsmag.co.uk “Features a fascinating cop and disillusioned anti-hero who rails against both injustice and the corrupt system but faces classic murder cases with a familiar Christie-like ring.” —Maxim Jakubowski “Fuses social commentary with fine cuisine and serves it up on a charming bed of criminality, and is a creditable advert for Italian crime fiction. Definitely one to savour.” —www.bookgeeks.co.uk“Straight from the city that brought us da Vinci and Dante, Vichi is on a par with writers like Henning Mankell and Elizabeth George who have elevated the police procedural to a work of art.” —Shelf Awareness'
