9781497335943: Crimes in Little Italy: Roy Tarantino's first case (NYC Thriller) (Volume 1)

A thriller you won’t be able to put down! Roy Tarantino, a second-generation Italian-American, is a typical loser. He has lost everything—his business, his wife and son—and is about to commit suicide by jumping from his apartment on Mulberry Street, Little Italy, New York City. In the exact moment when he is about to jump, he hears a woman’s scream coming from the apartment just across the street. This strange coincidence will turn his failure of a life into a success as he becomes, after an intriguing series of crimes that unexpectedly cross his path, a talented middle-aged detective. These crimes, a rape and a murder, concern two friends, Jessica and Laura, who seem to have been wrongly exchanged by the rapist and the killer. Behind these crimes, an intriguing multiple love story—on the model of Madame Bovary—creates the texture of a fantastic plot that gives the reader several surprises. Roy becomes able to solve the mystery thanks to his knowledge of psychiatric illnesses and of great classic literature. But just a page before the end . . . Crimes in Little Italy speeds from its beginning to its conclusion like a Ferrari on the open road in a very exciting and compelling way. The plot is very tightly constructed and carries a lot of very interesting material with grace and expertise. It hits the bull’s eye on nearly every page and can be defined an “unputdownable” book that the reader will find impossible not to read from cover to cover in one sitting. With a meticulously precise eye on the streets of New York City and a clever undercurrent that recalls Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, this novel offers an innovative approach to the thriller genre and will delight both lovers of thrillers and lovers of classic literature.
