Timothy Williams

The Commissario Trotti Mystery Series

Converging Parallels

(The Red Citroën *)

Description:  A small-town kidnapping sets Commissario Trotti a big problem and projects the reader into this quite outstanding mystery. Against an authentically realised background of a provincial Italian city, Trotti's investigation leads ever deeper into the mire of corruption and blackmail which seems to taint everything and everybody. As he probes further, so Trotti's problems multiply.

Timothy Williams' novel is for connoisseurs of crime fiction, a gripping story of high calibre with real characters and vivid observation reminiscent of the best Chandler or Freeling. We shall hear more of Commissario Trotti and of Timothy Williams, a truly gifted author whose first novel this is.
