Literary characters never stop. Six summer intrigues for home investigators. But it's not just the summer that links the stories of this volume. Each of them dose humor, speed and tension with a plastic adherence to the reality of our time, understanding it with an allusive shiver.
Here the normality situation, in which the various investigators are tested, is summer: precisely the summer holidays. They hope to a stop, "without surveys, without dangers, without mysteries". But the warm wind takes them away, off home and often out of my head.
Carlo Monterossi, the hero of Alessandro Robecchi, is found in an unusual position for an investigator although divo of television, that of the scammato; And so he prepares the "counter-counter". The glumen vecchietti, released by Marco Malvaldi's comic talent, are in the mountains, with the post office week, and put into a history of eversion: absurdly, but the absurd is their size. Saverio Lamanna, the protagonist of the Yellow Gaetano Savacters so close to the Sicilian chronicle, senses an unmistakable truth (in the meaning of the term) during an anti-mafia conference. Rocco Schiavone, the tenebrous sad of Antonio Manzini, discovers a small intrigue rebuinant on the holiday flight and risks provoking, with the air that pulls, a big trouble. Petra Delicado, the paladina of truth and justice coming from the genius of Alicia Giménez-Bartlett, this time without the Vice Fermín (she hears him on the phone) in a holiday club, stumbles in a boss, driven by the companion's children. And to Amedeo Consonni, the pensioner of the railing house by Francesco Recei, it is up to the most spicy case of the summer, just as it is with the grandson in the Bagni di Milano Marittima.
