BLOODY FOREIGNERS


Thanks to that excellent site Detectives Beyond Borders for the link to an interesting Bloody Foreigners tour.

Of the six authors featured I have Gianrico Carofiglio's A Walk In The Dark on my TBR pile.

A Walk in the Dark is excellent and I thought his first book, Involuntary Witness was even more gripping.

I'm with Euro Crime -- Carofiglio's Involuntary Witness was one of the most sutble, moving crime novels I've read in years. There's almost no way A Walk in the Dark could have reached those heights, but I'm glad to hear it's good as well (just started it last night, and don't have an impression yet).

I will obviously have to put Involuntary Witness on my wish list. Thanks.

I think the safest bet :-) is to buy every Bitter Lemon Press title going.

I think Carofiglio's style is so different, the originality made IW an exceptional novel. AWITD is very good but I didn't get quite the same 'wow' as it wasn't the first time I'd been exposed to his writing (if that makes any sense!).

I Look forward to your opinion on it in the future.

OK, OK, I've just got to buy it now. thanks! I am getting a bit fed up with the crime fiction I've been reading recently, I have actually not finished about the last 6 books I've pulled out of my pile in the cupboard which is very unusual for me. But this one (Witness) sounds just the ticket.
