La versione di Fenoglio

N°1 Bestseller

“In this manual for the good detective we end up finding the instructions to crack life”. la Repubblica 

“Carofiglio keeps getting better, more honest and precise. And generous towards his younger readers”. Antonio D’Orrico, Corriere della Sera 

“There is a painful and imperfect humanity that makes mistakes, breaks the law, sometimes kills. Carofiglio lays it down on the couch with the analyst’s intrinsic technique, but he does it with all the compassion that would be so needed in this bad times”. la Repubblica

The real world has little to do with the plots of detective novels or TV series. It really exists, and it’s a dangerous place.

Pietro Fenoglio – an old carabiniere who has seen it all – and Giulio – an  intelligent, sensitive, disoriented twenty-year-old – become friends in the most unexpected way. Their meetings unfold between personal confidences and the story of a formidable investigative experience, which gradually turns into reflection on the method of knowledge, on the fleeting concepts of truth and lie, on the very idea of power. La versione di Fenoglio is a short, surprising essay on the art of investigation hidden in an engaging novel, with characters of extraordinary authenticity: voices from a subtle darkness in which good and bad people, miserable and fair ones, are blending together.
