About the Author:

Conor Fitzgerald has lived in Ireland, the UK, the United States, and Italy. He has produced a current affairs journal for foreign embassies based in Rome, and founded a successful translation company. He is married with two children and lives in Rome. The Namesake is the third in his series of Italian crime novels.

Review:

Exquisitely written in a quietly elegant style, and dotted with nuggets of coal-black humour * Irish Times * Alec Blume is an inspired creation. An American who has become a commissioner in the Italian police, he's a sly, sardonic loner who gives the impression of knowing Rome better than its natives ... Fitzgerald is an elegant, visual writer * Guardian * The American-born Blume is an engaging hero who might just have to potential to fill the gap left when Michael Dibdin's death ended his Italian detective Aurelio Zen's investigations * Sunday Times * I'm putting my money on Alec Blume becoming the most popular detective of the coming decade * Belfast Telegraph *
