    Paperback¸ The Namesake ePUB ñ namesake epub, The Namesake PDFEPUBPerhaps I should just start this off by saying Mafia storylines are possibly my least favourite scenarios Maybe and probably unfairly it seems like an easy target the other possibility is that there's rarely anything new or illustrative about their activities Either way I'm acutely aware that this is a personal prejudice which is undoubtedly irrational and unreasonableAdding to the complication was THE NAMESAKE being t

    Paperback¸ The Namesake ePUB ñ namesake epub, The Namesake PDFEPUBI’m torn between giving this book 3 and 4 stars Like other books in the series I have problems with the lead character Alex Blume his actions and his rationales There were parts of this story line that felt unfinished or oddly resolved But it also contain some wonderful characterisations eg Basile and Ruggiero Even if I didn’t “believe” all the story threads it was an engaging read

    Paperback¸ The Namesake ePUB ñ namesake epub, The Namesake PDFEPUBThis is a review of the book The Namesake by Conor Fitzgerald The novel is an Italian crime story and follows an American born police commissioner Alec Blume as he is drawn into the world of the Calabrian mafiaI uite enjoy crime fiction I have a real weakness for a well written whodunnit and find it easy to lose myself in that atmosphere However I am unused to Italian crime stories aside from the odd television series like Inspector Montalbano and Rex in Rome And yes this does make a difference For example the judicial processes in Italy are uite different from what you would see in your usual American or British crime story in that the judiciary are involved in the investigation from the start rather than just the trial For someone unfamiliar with this it can take some getting used toThe other thing that makes Italian crime stories differe

    Paperback¸ The Namesake ePUB ñ namesake epub, The Namesake PDFEPUBI really love Donna Leon's books so I was excited when Shelf Awareness sent me The Namesake an Italian mystery not to be confused with the novel by Jhumpa Lahiri for review It didn't have the same brilliance as Leon's books but it was still fun and the mistaken identity premise was intriguingIn The Namesake his third Commissario Alec Blume novel Conor Fitzgerald delves into the mysterious secrets of the 'Ndrangheta an organized crime syndicate whose constituent families see it as almost a form of religionIt all starts simply enough Blume has been working with magistrate Matteo Arconti to investigate a Roman doctor's suicide which uickly leads them to the Megale family key leaders in one of the branches of the 'Ndrangheta Then a Milanese insurance adjustor also named Matteo Arconti is found dead outside the court buildings where Magistrate Arconti works Blume and his girlfriend Inspector Caterina Mattiola uickly realize the dead Arconti was harmless his murder a warning from the 'N

    Paperback¸ The Namesake ePUB ñ namesake epub, The Namesake PDFEPUBEach time I read one of Fitzgerald's books I like Commissario Alec Blume a bit less I think this might be my last he's just not an appealing character and I have a hard time putting in so many hours reading a book about someone I dislikeThat's kind of a shame though because I think the subject matter is promising even if the books are a bit too focused on organized crime for my taste I found this one particularly obtuse though I wish I had noticed that there was a glossary at the end before I finished the book because all of the ranks within the Italian police and the 'ndrangheta were difficult to decipher The end was fairly incomprehensible even after getting all the way through the book I'm still not entirely sure what happenedWell written enough although again mysterious than necessary and leaving way too much for the reader to infer but ultimately not something I'd recommend

    Paperback¸ The Namesake ePUB ñ namesake epub, The Namesake PDFEPUBThis is third in the rather wonderful Alec Blume series and I really enjoyed it Blume improbably is an American orphaned in Italy who manages to become Italian enough to rise to senior rank in the Italian police His almost complete disrespect for the rules begs the uestion of why he wasn't fired years before he achieve the exalted rank of Commisario but now that he's there we can just sit back and enjoy the ride This time out he becomes involved with the Ndrangheta the secretive and widespread criminal organization based in Calabria with hair raising results Apparently it's best to leave some criminals in peace It begins with a murder of a harmless and univolved insurance actuary apparenlty committed simply because he has the same name as a magistrate involved in investigating the Ndrangheta as a warning to him to stop The book takes off from there and ends in spectacular fashion in the dark heart of Calabria Resd the whole series you won't be
