Requiem in La Rossa

Yesterday was the publication day of Tom Benjamin’s third English PI  Daniel Leicester outing, Requiem in La Rossa. Having explored traditional Italian themes in his first two books (anarchy in A Quiet Death in Italy and gastronomy in The Hunting Season), here Tom explores another subject very close to the Italian heart: music.

A case of a mugging-gone-wrong leads Daniel on a trail which begins among Bologna’s close-knit classical music community, leading him to suspect there may be a killer at large at the oldest university in the world.  And as Bologna trembles with aftershocks following a recent earthquake, the city begins to give up her secrets…

If you are an avid armchair traveller, or even if you just love a good PI novel set in a memorable location, then look no further than Requiem at La Rossa.  Pick up the book, put your feet up… and get lost among the red porticos and dark alleyways of the historic city of Bologna.
