All the Old Knives by Olen Steinhauer
All the Old Knives

Marci San Francisco, April 13, 2015

ALL THE OLD KNIVES is the first book I have read by Olen Steinhauer. It definitely kept my interest throughout. The mechanism of switching back and forth between the voices of the two main characters was very effective in maintaining a high level of tension. The surprise ending blew me away! I will definitely be checking out some of Steinhauer's earlier books.

Reasonable Doubts by Gianrico Carofiglio
Reasonable Doubts

Marci San Francisco, March 9, 2015

Carofiglio is my new favorite mystery/legal thriller writer, and for me, this tops all his other excellent books ( those which have been translated into English ).
Guido Guerrieri, his protagonist in Reasonable Doubts, is excruciatingly insightful and he shares those insights with the reader unsparingly. You gotta love this guy! This is intelligent writing with plenty of wit by a writer who has real experience as an anti-Mafia prosecutor. Can't wait for his next book!

A Walk in the Dark by Gianrico Carofiglio
A Walk in the Dark

Marci San Francisco, February 27, 2015

Carofiglio is far and away the best crime writer I have read. I just finished rereading A WALK IN THE DARK, and if anything I enjoyed it even more than the first time. His writing is spare and beautiful, and his protagonist is intelligently and unsparingly self-reflective. Because of the author's personal experience with the Italian police and prosecution, his insights and disclosures about how the system really works ring disturbingly true. I was shocked all over again by the final pages of A WALK IN THE DARK. Highly recommended, along with everything else Carofiglio has written that has been translated. Cudos also to the terrific translator.
