Almost Blue
Almost Blue
City Lights Noir
Translated by Oonagh Stransky

A psychopathic killer of university students is on the loose in Bologna. Rookie detective Grazia Negro is put in charge of this critical investigation, with only her gut instincts to guide her. She gets an unexpected breakthrough when she meets Simone, a young blind man who spends his days at home alone, listening to jazz and to the sounds of the city on his scanner. From the multiple perspectives of the detective, the blind man, and the assassin, Lucarelli weaves a gripping thriller.

Carlo Lucarelli, one of the most exciting young writers in Europe, has written eleven novels, all of them noirs. He also hosts a television series, teaches writing in Torino, sings in a post-punk band, and edits an on-line magazine, Incubatoio 16.
