    The dualistic, northern approach to life is completely alien to the Sicilian mind So far from there being just two possibilities, there are, in any given case, an almost infinite number.

    There are a number of police detective novels set in Italy, and all contain some element of social comment on the day to day bizzareness of Italian life Michael Dibdin began this book with a chapter that has to be the funniest story about a short trip by freight train ever written, which at the same explains a lot about Sicily, and why,even by Italian standards, the triangular island is very strange.In justice, the story is only so so thereafter, and includes some fairly meandering elements, wh There are a number of police detective novels set in Italy, and all contain some element of social comment on the day to day bizzareness of Italian life Michael Dibdin began this book with a chapter that has to be the funniest story about a short trip by freight train ever written, which at the same explains a lot about Sicily, and why,even by Ital...

    This, the seventh in the Aurelio Zen series, is my personal favourite of the 8 I have read Medusa yet to come.This one has reasonably complex plotting and at first it was a little difficult to decide whether to try to keep track of which mafia group was which In the end, I just let it flow, and it did come together in the end.Like with most of the characters in a Zen novel, you can never be sure to what extent anyone including Zan is a goodie or a baddie There are precarious few go This, the seventh in the Aurelio Zen series, is my personal favourite of the 8 I have read Medusa yet to come.This one has reasonably complex plotting and at first it was a little difficult to decide whether to try to keep track of which mafia group was which In the end, I just let it flow, and it did come together in the end.Like with most of the characters in a Zen novel, you can never be sure to what extent anyone including Zan is a goodie or a baddi...
