BIGGER BITTER LEMON


The new updated Bitter Lemon Press website is packed full of interesting information with photographs of their authors, and book reviews.

From the site information on and photograph of Gianrico Carofiglio:

''A new voice, and one with which I am sure we will soon become familiar is that of Gianrico Carofiglio...'' Daily Mail''
Involuntary Witness is a stunner. Two things put this novel on a higher plane. Guerrieri is a wonderfully convincing character...'' The Times

Carofiglio, born 1961, is an anti-mafia prosecutor in the southern Italian city of Bari. He has been responsible for the area’s most important indictments regarding organized crime, corruption and trading in human beings. 'Involuntary Witness' and 'A Walk in the Dark' both feature Guido Guerrieri, defence counsel of hopeless causes. These crime novels are the basis of a major television series in Italy and were top of the best seller lists for six and eight months respectively.

Thanks to Karen at Eurocrime for the update.

He looks rather handsome, I think. Good writer as well. I read in one of the books that there is a TV series in Italy based on them.

Ha! I guess now I can say I found Saskia Noort rather attractive on the Bitter Lemon site. Of course, that's not why I'll read her novel; I have a longtime attraction to the Netherlands and at least one of its crime writers.
