Involuntary witness by Gianrico Carofiglio( Book )

97 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in 14 languages and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A nine-year-old boy is found murdered at the bottom of a well near a popular beach resort in southern Italy. In what looks like a hopeless case for Guido Guerrieri, counsel for the defence, a Senegalese peddler is accused of the crime. Faced with small-town racism fuelled by the recent immigration from Africa, Guido attempts to exploit the esoteric workings of the Italian courts. More than a perfectly paced legal thriller, this relentless suspense novel transcends the genre. A powerful attack on racism, and a fascinating insight into the Italian judicial process, it is also an affectionate portrait of a deeply humane hero

As world-weary Lieutenant Chiti spends sleepless nights hunting for the serial rapist terrorizing his city, as 22 years old trainee lawyer Giorgio is befriended by dangerously charismatic Francesco. Giorgio becomes Francesco's pupil and learns to cheat at cards. Slowly the innocent Giorgio is lured into a corrupt world of beautiful women and casual violence. Giorgio enters a world where his own image of himself starts to fragment, revealing someone he no longer recognizes: someone who both scares and attracts him. In parallel, we are given the story of the artistically inclined Lieutenant Chiti of the carabinieri who is investigating a series of brutal rapes in Bari. A shocking dénouement draws together the two strands of the story in a wholly unexpected way and brings a catharsis for both Giorgio and Lieutenant Chiti

When Martina accuses her ex-boyfriend--the son of a powerful local judge--of assault and battery, no witnesses can be persuaded to testify on her behalf and one lawyer after another refuses to represent her. Guido Guerrieri knows the case could bring his legal career to a premature and messy end but he cannot resist the appeal of a hopeless cause. Nor deny an attraction to Sister Claudia, the young woman in charge of the shelter where Martina is living, who shares his love of martial arts and his virulent hatred of injustice
A fine line by Gianrico Carofiglio( Book )

33 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fifth in the best-selling Guido Guerrieri series. When Judge Larocca is accused of corruption, Guerrieri goes against his better instincts and takes the case. Helped by Annapaola Doria, a motorbike-riding bisexual private detective who keeps a baseball bat on hand for sticky situations, he investigates the alleged links to the mafia. Of course Guerrieri cannot stop himself from falling for Annapaola's exotic charms. The novel is a suspenseful legal thriller but it is also much more. It is the story of a judge who, to quote Dostoevsky, "lies to himself and listens to his own lies, so gets to the point where he can no longer distinguish the truth, either in himself or around himself."

The summer of 1992 is a cold one in southern Italy. The chilling Mafia violence currently sweeping Sicily has spread to Puglia, much to the consternation of Pietro Fenoglio, a local officer of the Carabinieri. Fenoglio, recently jilted by his wife, must simultaneously deal with his personal crisis and the gang wars raging around Bari. The case is stalled until a Mafia member, suspected of killing the son of a rival mobster, decides to collaborate. The brutal killings are stopped but the mystery of the boy's murder must still be solved, leading Fenoglio into a world of deep moral ambiguity, where the investigators are hard to distinguish from the investigated

Una mutevole verità by Gianrico Carofiglio( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in Italian and English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A good investigator must be able to build a story, to imagine what happened before and after the crime, as in a novel. Then, with the story built, must go in search of confirms and contradicts it. So you would think the police sergeant Pietro Fenoglio, from Piedmont, transplanted to Bari, who is investigating a murder in which everything seems too clear from the start, would do this. It was not that the main suspect, which every clue revolved around, and who lacked any motive for committing the crime.-- cataloger's translation of cover
Né qui né altrove : una notte a Bari by Gianrico Carofiglio( Book )

Rivedersi dopo oltre vent'anni con amici che non hai più cercato. Di giorno basterebbero pochi minuti per un saluto di circostanza, ma di notte è un'altra cosa. Di notte Bari può catturare e trasformarsi in un irreale cinema della memoria. Dove presente e passato, ricordi e invenzione si confondono, e l'età da cui le illusioni fuggono può ancora sfiorare il tempo in cui tutto era possibile

La manomissione delle parole by Gianrico Carofiglio( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in Italian and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le parole servono a comunicare e raccontare storie. Ma anche a produrre trasformazioni e cambiare la realtà. Quando se ne fa un uso sciatto e inconsapevole o se ne manipolano deliberatamente i significati, l'effetto è il logoramento e la perdita di senso. Se questo accade, è necessario sottoporre le parole a una manutenzione attenta, ripristinare la loro forza originaria, renderle di nuovo aderenti alle cose. In questo libro, atipico e sorprendente, Gianrico Carofiglio riflette sulle lingue del potere e della sopraffazione, e si dedica al recupero di cinque parole chiave del lessico civile: vergogna, giustizia, ribellione, bellezza, scelta, legate fra loro in un itinerario concettuale ricco di suggestioni. Il rigore dell'indagine - letteraria, politica ed etica - si combina con il gusto anarchico degli sconfinamenti e degli accostamenti inattesi: Aristotele e don Milani, Cicerone e Primo Levi, Dante e Bob Marley, fino alle pagine esemplari della nostra Costituzione. Ne derivano una lettura emozionante, una prospettiva nuova per osservare il nostro mondo. Chiamare le cose con il loro nome è un gesto rivoluzionario, dichiarava Rosa Luxemburg ormai un secolo fa. Ripensare il linguaggio, oggi, significa immaginare una nuova forma di vita
La casa nel bosco by Gianrico Carofiglio( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in Italian and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

È tutto accaduto, più o meno. È l{u2019}incipit di un grande romanzo e peccato sia stato già scritto da Kurt Vonnegut, perché sarebbe l{u2019}attacco ideale per questa storia. Anzi, per queste storie. I due protagonisti {u2013} e autori {u2013} sono fratelli ma non si frequentano molto, forse nemmeno si sopportano molto. Vite diverse, caratteri diversi e forse anche qualche lontano rancore, lasciati covare sotto la cenere per troppo tempo. Adesso però gli tocca stare insieme, almeno per qualche ora: devono dare un{u2019}ultima occhiata alla casa di villeggiatura della loro infanzia {u2013} la casa nel bosco {u2013} prima di consegnare le chiavi al nuovo proprietario. Sembra solo un adempimento banale anche se un po{u2019} triste e invece diventa l{u2019}occasione, inattesa e sorprendente, per un viaggio nella memoria, per una riconciliazione, per un inventario buffo e struggente di oggetti, luoghi, odori, storie e soprattutto sapori. In una sequenza di dialoghi fulminanti, comici e commoventi, Gianrico e Francesco Carofiglio (rigorosamente disposti in ordine di anzianità) percorrono il crinale sottile che divide affetto e rivalità, divertimento e malinconia, nostalgia e disincanto. Un memoir a quattro mani che racconta di amicizie perdute, di amori rubati, di vecchi fumetti e di torte di ricotta. Un ricettario, non solo metaforico, dell{u2019}infanzia, dell{u2019}adolescenza e di un{u2019}età adulta ancora capace di riservare sorprese. -- From publisher's website

Cocaine by Giancarlo De Cataldo( Book )

In Carlotto's The Campagna Trail, Inspector Campagna uses an old friendship with notorious drug dealer Roby Pizzo in a Machiavellian attempt to keep the peace. But when an interfering new police chief demands Campagna bring down the Mafioso who heads Pizzo's gang, Campagna must use every weapon he has to save his job - and his life. Meanwhile in Carofiglio's The Speed of the Angel, a writer in crisis strikes up an unlikely friendship with a mysterious woman he meets in a quiet seaside cafe. As their conversations deepen, and their obsessions darken, their drug-fuelled relationship begins to spiral, in this haunting tale of damnation and redemption. Finally in De Cataldo's The White Powder Dance, the city police are put on the trail of a baby-faced new graduate in the Milanese banking sector. As the pursuit accelerates through back streets and skyscrapers, it becomes clear that there is more to organised crime than getting your hands dirty
