Every character in Carofiglio's fiction has a story to tell and they are always worth hearing. As the author himself is an anti-mafia prosecutor, this powerfully affecting novel benefits from veracity as well as tight writing.--Daily MailA novel as much about human nature and the passage of time as it is about law-breaking.
