The Wonders of Archeology
Big Stupid does what it’s supposed to. It’s a fast, sexy, violent, wisecracking tale that can be read in one sitting. But Victor Gischler also adds a lot of heart to the story. The final sequence, as the characters race to settle things against the approach of a hurricane, is concisely and brilliantly rendered. And the ending stunned me, ringing in my head for a quite a while after I’d set the book down. 4.5, really.
With Matteo Strukul pulp fiction starts a new, wonderful season. New ideas, a “beyond the genre” style, powerful injections of reality and a new, really fascinating, feminine character. The Mila Saga has begun. Finally. We have been waiting for it for a long time!
Those passionate about true crime stories will certainly appreciate the analysis of the murders of the Monster of Florence. Brunoro and Pezzan write about everything, from Vincenzo Spalletti to the Sardinian Lead, from Pietro Pacciani to the picnicking friends, and finally from the esoteric theory to the Narducci story. A wonderful map to find your way through a deep mystery.
The future is assured. The future is Anthony Neil Smith. Let the devil rejoice.
A must read guaranteed to give newbies a clear and complete understanding of the Monster's murders and of the various investigative theories. The book could also be a great reference for “experts” who believe they know everything on the subject, as it uncovers valuable clues and revelations about the murders and the investigations.
Victor Gischler just became one of my favorites. His books and stories are killer. Cold as dry ice, clever and funny. Man, this guy has it going on.
The sensational story of Amanda Knox has spawned books that declare her guilt and proclaim her innocence.
Smith has a powerful voice and delivers quite a romp.
Matteo Strukul is one of the most important new voices in Italian crime fiction and must be read.
This is insane. And fucking hilarious. And insane. Only available as a Kindle original, but it's cheap and fast and fun and... insane.
A young independent publishing house with many titles in the digital world sales charts.
Matteo Strukul has a brilliant style and a rare imagination. I heartily welcome him
to the God-cursed and Devil-blessed brotherhood of mad novelists!
Giacomo Brunoro and Jacopo Pezzan are bringing their small publishing house to the top with their choices that are sometimes bizarre but very interesting.
When you read Matteo Strukul, wear something washable. The action is non-stop, and the blood flies off the page.
