Ilaria Tuti ha creato non un personaggio ma una persona vera. Teresa Battaglia pi di una protagonista: una luce piena di ombre, uno spazio dentro il nostro cuore. gi indimenticabile. Donato Carrisi Tra i boschi e le pareti rocciose a strapiombo, gi nellorrido che conduce al torrente, tra le pozze dacqua smeraldo che profuma di ghiaccio, qualcosa si nasconde. Me lo dicono le tracce di sangue, me lo dice lesperienza: successo, ma potrebbe risuccedere. Questo solo linizio. Qualcosa di sconvolgente accaduto, tra queste montagne. Qualcosa che richiede tutta la mia abilit investigativa. Sono un commissario di polizia specializzato in profiling e ogni giorno cammino sopra linferno. Non la pistola, non la divisa: la mia mente la vera arma. Ma proprio lei mi sta tradendo. Non il corpo acciaccato dallet che avanza, non il mio cuore tormentato. La mia lucidit a rischio, e questo significa che lo anche lindagine. Mi chiamo Teresa Battaglia, ho un segreto che non oso confessare nemmeno a me stessa, e per la prima volta nella vita ho paura. Questo non soltanto lesordio di una scrittrice di grandissimo talento. Non soltanto un thriller dal ritmo implacabile e dallambientazione suggestiva. Questo il debutto di una protagonista indimenticabile per la sua straordinaria umanit, il suo spirito indomito, la sua rabbia e la sua tenerezza.

Superintendent Teresa Battaglia, the lead in this wonderful novel, is one of the most complex, interesting characters I‘ve encountered in a great while. A woman of a certain age, plagued by the human frailties we encounter after middle age. Whip smart and confronting a historical atrocity playing out in her current environment.

This is beautifully written, lyrically translated fiction. Highly recommended debut. Can‘t wait for the next.

3.5/5
I feel like the concept of this book was better than the actual execution. The killer‘s story was really interesting, but the author just went overboard with the detective‘s personal drama (threat of Alzheimer‘s AND general aging woes AND a traumatic past AND etc.). The dialogue also seemed a little over the top at times. This is a debut novel, and it‘s not without promise, but it didn‘t quite do it for me.

At least the woman on the book cover looks like she‘s staying cool right now...

ImperfectCJ Welcome to Litsy! I'm curious... what's the story behind your having many Italian books on your TBR? Do you particularly enjoy reading in Italian compared to reading in other languages? 5mo
mmseiple @ImperfectCJ I like reading in Italian! Also, it‘s a language that I don‘t get to practice in person a lot (not many Italian speakers around here), so reading is one of the ways I try to keep up with it. 5mo

And now for tough choices... Which book to read next? I‘m torn between the murder mystery on the left and the classic on the right. Hmm... (Had to edit because I apparently can‘t tell my left from my right. 🤦‍♀️)

An idyllic mountain town steeped in secrets.
A terrifying predator prowling the woods. A gritty, bristling female detective who has little patience with idiots or violence. A case that gets creepier & more complicated by the day.
Translated from Italian, a fantastic read for anyone who loves their crime novels with a touch of horror!

It's raining today for the first time in a long time! And after a long day yesterday putting finishing touches on a new manuscript to send to my agent, I'm feeling no guilt about snuggling up with a blanket and finishing this book. It's so creepy and good, y'all! 👍

JennyM Yey for submitted manuscripts! Enjoy your guilt-free reading...and the rain 🌧 6mo

I haven't been spending as much time on Litsy recently and I'm not sure why. It's tricky trying to balance life. Writing is a priority. Family is. Reading is too. And spending time outdoors. So often that means social media is the last thing I do and then it's only a quick pop in and pop out. I'd like to post more. And interact. I miss this. I miss you. How do you make time for Litsy and other social media sites?

monalyisha I have the same questions! But I‘m glad to see your post. 😊 6mo
Melissa_J Litsy is the only social media site I use regularly, but I take breaks when I have other stuff going on that pushes Litsy to the back burner. Just post when you can, Litsy and Littens will be here waiting 😊 6mo
