Gianrico Carofiglio is back with a new novel. He is one of Europe’s best selling crime authors, having sold over 5 million copies of his novels in Italy alone. Best known for his defence attorney Guido Guerrieri series set in Puglia, Carofiglio is introducing a new hero and series with The Cold Summer, translated by Howard Curtis. Carabinieri officer Fenoglio is a conflicted, melancholy man, vulnerable yet strong enough to take on the worst of organized crime. Inspired by a true story, The Cold Summer is Carofiglio’s most hard-hitting novel yet.
