Big Italy: A Commissario Trotti Mystery
Publisher: Recorded Books
Date: March 2015
Duration: 12 hours 5 minutes
After what seems like several lifetimes as a policeman, Commissario Trotti can't wait to retire to the villa he jointly owns with his cousin, where his biggest concern will be keeping track of his chickens. But things keep getting in the way of his plans. Like Fabrizio Bassi, for instance. With his camel-hair coat and sallow complexion, Bassi is notorious--he was on the Polizia di Stato for ten years before being dismissed and setting up his own detective agency. The last thing a cop with retirement in mind wants is to be associated with a seedy PI--especially one with a bee in his bonnet about a murdered doctor and a conspiracy theory to match. So what if someone wants Bassi dead? Despite his many enemies, he's lasted this long . . . And amidst all of this chaos, Trotti's boss wants him to head up a child abuse unit. Big Italy is a rich, ambiguous mystery of politics, corruption, love--and death.
