The Hunting Season


As 70 mph winds whip across the country and rain lashes down 24/7, we fully recommend picking up Tom Benjamin’s latest and escaping to the Italian countryside outside Bologna, where truffle hunting and murder collide in a delicious mixture of crime and cookery. The stunning architecture, sunny weather and delicious food are wonderfully captured by Benjamin in this novel, making it the perfect relief from the bad weather.

It’s a wonderful piece of escapism and transports you to a wonderful city where at least you can enjoy the sights, smells and tastes of Italy, even though getting there to experience them first hand is still proving to be challenging. But this thriller is more than just a sunny escape, for beneath the well-crafted beauty of its setting lurks plenty of corruption, intrigue and murder to keep you hooked all the way through.
