About the Author

BRUNO MORCHIO, one of Italy's best-selling mystery writers, lives and works in Genoa as a psychologist and psychotherapist. He is the author of over a dozen novels and the recipient of multiple literary awards.


"The novel smoothly transitions between events that occurred in 1944 and those in the present day, providing readers with a sobering view of the dangers faced by members of the Italian Resistance movement as well as giving a visceral feel of Italy then and now. Morchio skillfully unfurls a poignant story of survival and betrayal." Publishers Weekly

"For mystery fans, Bacci Pagano is one of Italy's most beloved characters." Vanity Fair

"In the able intertwining of the past and present, historical events in Nazi occupied Italy come to life . . . The ultimate truth, revealed in the very last pages, will stun the reader." L'Indice

"Morchio vividly evokes the dramatic atmosphere of Nazi-occupied Genoa and the dangers faced by the Italian partisans. If you enjoyed Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan, you'll love The German Client." Francesca Rebora, author of Teste di Maschio

"Bacci Pagano is a fixture in the Italian imagination. One grows fond of Bacci. After reading a few of these novels, you find you can no longer do without him." Il Secolo XIX

"The plot, the twists, the suspense, the emotions and, above all, the grand finale work together to make this the best novel Morchio has written so far." Il Giornale di Brescia

"Bacci Pagano, the noir detective with the heart of gold, always fighting for the underdog." Il Secolo XIX

"A masterful tale." La Repubblica

"Morchio interweaves the novel's two temporal planes with great narrative mastery. You can taste the places and feel the drama and the emotions." Bresciaoggi

"This is the beauty and the distinctive trait of Italian noir. There is more than just crime: history, politics, society, love, friendship." Telegraph Avenue
