Chimaera: Anti-Nazi Squad Vol. 1

April 1945.

Richard “Ishmael” MacLachlan, a member of the Scottish Commandos, and Marco “Gerico” Caregnato, an Alpino who joined the Partisans, are coerced to become the élite members of an international task force.

Officially dead, they are dispatched in the middle of a Nazi-controlled area with a bloodstained map and a single order, something that may cost them more than they are ready to sacrifice.

They must FIND SKULD!

Multi-awarded Italian pulp crime author Matteo Strukul and rising star Marco Piva Dittrich join forces into a top notch creative team to deliver to Anglo-American readers a fast paced pulp adventure novella that will blast your hearts and introduce a new merciless bunch of epic characters: Chimaera, the anti Nazi squad.

Matteo Strukul reminds me of Duane Swierczynski and Quentin Tarantino, which is a very fine combination: he’s the name to watch in Italian crime fiction. In fact, he's the name to watch internationally.

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!

Tim Willocks

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!

Massimo Carlotto

When you read Matteo Strukul, wear something washable. The action is non-stop, and the blood flies off the page.

Linwood Barclay

Matteo Strukul is one of the most important new voices in Italian crime fiction and must be read.
