Massimo Carlotto - The Goodbye Kiss (2nd Hand Softback)
An unscrupulous womanizer, as devoid of morals as he once was full of idealistic fervour, returns to Italy where he is wanted for a series of political crimes.
To avoid prison he sells out his old friends, turns his back on his former ideals, and cuts deals with crooked cops.
To achieve the guise of respectability he is willing to go even further, maybe even as far as murder.

“Carlotto is the reigning king of Mediterranean noir.” - The Boston Phoenix.
"More than merely hard-boiled, his novels are sexy, seedy, cynical and nihilistic, but with moments of idealism." - London Review of Books.
"It's lean, mean and violent and Carlotto offers an unflinching and unflattering view of modern Italy." - The Independent.
"Carlotto's books are as interesting as the man himself . . . His latest story of prostitution, drug dealers and corruption gives us an indication of why he is so highly regarded." - The Irish Independent.
"A superb storyteller, one of the best there is . . . He is a master of the tautly-written crime thriller." - Lo Straniero (Italy)"
Massimo Carlotto is Italy’s darkest crime writer bar none. Imprisoned for many years for a murder he did not commit, he has written a whole bunch of achingly beautiful and mean tales of crime and corruption in Italy.
