The publisher, Bücher by Garzanti in books Rezensionen”. Closer than the construction of crime plots is the human-too-human heart by this author, and therefore human touch in the small Vitali cosmos so wonderful that one is fascinated share increases and wants to learn how it was made because now all these people on – no matter whether they are criminals or notables, paragons of virtue or Schlitzohren, servants or teachers.
