Description
Achille Peroni loves the spicy food and passionate life of southern Italy, land of his birth. But fate and the Italian police force have stuck him in Verona, a city of bean soup and endless problems with the Red Brigades, the vicious gang that employs bombings and kidnappings to further its murky political aims. In this first of the five Inspector Peroni mysteries written in Italy by expatriate English author Timothy Holme, the Reds are the most obvious suspects when a wealthy general with a Fascist past goes missing from his palatial estate. But Peroni uncoves a crime far more subtle and sinister—one that leads all the way back to Romeo and Juliet, the most famous Veronese of all. This literate mystery from independent New York bookstore publisher Felony & Mayhem is from their "Foreign" category, featuring intricately observed, richly atmospheric settings anywhere in the world outside of England and the U.S.A.

"Peroni, an Anglophilic Italian, is a genuine find, an original and unusual hero."—Times (London)

"The Montagues and Capulets return to life in a rich ambience of neo-Fascism, corruption and murder ... stylishly done."—Observer (London)

"The characters are delightfully etched and Verona is bewitchingly presented."—Daily Telegraph (London)
