Pitch

A series following Inspector Fenoglio. In book 1, he investigates a case that seems too easy to be already solved. A man is found dead in his apartment. A witness talks about the presence of a young man on the scene of the crime. The only thing that the Inspector doesn’t have is the motive.

Comments

Book 3, LA VERSIONE DI FENOGLIO (Fenoglio’s Version), is a Nr. 1 Bestseller in Italy (April 2019)

Translation rights sold (Book 2): Germany, Denmark. Option in UK and Poland

Carofiglio is a former Magistrate.
As all Fenoglio's novels, it is very engaging, intelligent, with deep thoughts on the meaning of law, the role of the law enforcement and its duties, and the boundaries between good and evil. It is a very remarkable and valuable novel, in terms of plot, style and meaning. This novel is divided in 3 sections, which are quite different from each other. The first part is a typical of the crime genre novel, there is an homicide and an officer who investigates on it, the characters are mainly criminals. The second part is formed by the tapes of the interrogatories and seems almost an essay on the Mafia habits and modus operandi. The third part goes back to the crime genre, but, this time, the evil people are inside the justice.

L’ESTATE FREDDA is a masterpiece and, as other Carofiglio’s works, it will probably become a bestseller both in Italy and in an international market.

Summary

Book 1: UNA MUTEVOLE VERITA (A Changeable Truth)

Inspector Fenoglio investigates a case that seems too easy to be already solved. A man is found dead in his apartment. A witness talks about the presence of a young man on the scene of the crime. Once identified, the man refuses to confess. The only thing that the Inspector doesn’t have is the motive. Eventually, following the lucid thoughts and investigations of Fenoglio, the reader discovers that the murderer is not the man suspected in the first place.
