About the Author

Massimo Carlotto was born in Padua, Italy. In addition to the many titles in his extremely popular Alligator series, he is also the author of The Fugitive, Death's Dark Abyss, Poisonville, Bandit Love, and At the End of a Dull Day. One of Italy's most popular authors and a major exponent of the Mediterranean Noir novel, Carlotto has been compared with many of the most important American hardboiled crime writers. His novels have been translated into many languages, enjoying enormous success outside of Italy, and several have been made into highly acclaimed films.

Praise for Massimo Carlotto

"Massimo Carlotto has a history as riveting as any novel."
--Chicago Tribune

"Carlotto is the reigning king of Mediterranean noir."
--The Boston Phoenix

"In hardboiled fiction, there is this hardcore Italian guy I suggest: Massimo Carlotto. Tough as fuck."
--Guillermo del Toro, Director

"Carlotto's taut, broody Mediterranean noir is filled with blind corners and savage set pieces. Pellegrini's deeds are unquestionably loathsome, but his witty Machiavellian perspective, amplified by a class rage well attuned to the current Italian zeitgeist, makes you root for him all the same."
--The New Yorker

"The best living Italian crime writer."
--Il Manifesto

"Carlotto [...] provides a machine-gun pace, a jaundiced eye for political corruption and a refreshing absence of anything approaching a moral vision."
--Kirkus Reviews

"[Carlotto's] narration allows gruesome glimpses into an unscrupulous psyche."
--Publishers Weekly
