Padua, Italy. An unremarkable man disappears without a trace. One woman knows there is more to his disappearance than another bored suburban husband running out on his family, but fears that coming forward will compromise her position. Stricken by guilt, she finally confides in a lawyer who advises her to turn to Marco Buratti, aka the Alligator. Initially, the case of the woman's missing lover seems like a lost cause, but a clue puts the Alligator and his trusted associates on the trail of the unscrupulous and brilliant criminal, Giorgio Pellegrini.

Review:

&quotAn instance of criminals in pursuit of criminals, this is a shaded caper and an earnest investigation into the nature of evil that reads like a runaway train, and confirms Carlotto as equal to any of the English-writing czars of noir."

--LoveReading

Book Description Europa Editions, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. PI Marco "the Alligator" Buratti returns in a "raucous, delicious ride" from the celebrated Italian crime writer and author of Bandit Love(Cedar Rapids Gazette). Padua, Italy. An unremarkable man, a husband and father, disappears without a trace. After a few months of searching, the police send his file to the cold cases department to be thrown in with the files of other missing persons. One woman knows the truth about his disappearance, but, being the daughter of a prominent and wealthy Swiss industrialist, she fears coming forward with what she knows: that she was his lover and that there is more to his disappearance than another bored suburban husband running out on his wife. Stricken by guilt, she finally confides in a lawyer who advises her to turn to Marco Buratti, a.k.a. the Alligator, for help.Buratti agrees to assist the woman.Initially, the case of the woman's missing lover seems like a lost cause, but a clue puts the Alligator and his trusted associates, Max the Memory and Beniamino Rossini, on the trail of the unscrupulous and brilliant criminal, Giorgio Pellegrini, protagonist of The Goodbye Kiss and At the End of a Dull Day.The deadly game of chicken in which the good guys and the bad guys are often hard to tell apart is Carlotto's specialty. But good or bad, these men are survivors in a world where the once ironclad criminal codes of conduct are disappearing and new criminal syndicates do vicious battle with old. "A shaded caper and an earnest investigation into the nature of evil that reads like a runaway train, and confirms Carlotto as equal to any of the English-writing czars of noir."--LoveReading "Gang of Lovers is Italian 'hard boiled' noir but with the shell left on."--Crime Scraps Review.
