I have the very great privilege of knowing Michael and Danielle, and this new book of theirs is simply brilliant. Set in rural Umbria in Italy, it follows the story of a new character of theirs - Sebastiano Cango. After a brief stint in London, he returns to Italy to take up a job as a park ranger looking after the local wolf population.

But there are other wolves lurking around too, in the form of the Mafia, who are looking to cash in on a local earthquake and EU money. Gregorio also brings in o

Not all Italians are criminals!
There are those who fight the bad guys, whether the bad guys are street thugs or politicians.
The main protagonist of this crime thriller (some violence and foul language) is a young Italian man who has had to leave Calabria because of the criminals. When his peaceful life in Umbria's mountain animal reserve is threatened by criminal gangs, he fights alongside the good guys to keep his new home safe.
The author varies the point of view skillfully throughout the sto

I love to read mystery novels and like to read stories set in different parts of the world. Therefore, when I saw this novel would be set in the Umbria region of Italy and featuring a park ranger in those hills I decided to give it a try. The sub-title of the book leads you to think it will also be about the Mafia, but that proves to be incorrect. Instead this book is about the activities of a different segment of the criminal element, the 'Ndrangheta who want to move out of Calabria into the ...more

I like the cover, the setting (the Sybilline Mountains National Park in Italy), and the fact that it is a new series featuring a park ranger.

That said, I hoped the plot would include more about wolves and less about organized crime. I usually avoid books that are heavy on mafia-like organizations, but the park ranger and the wolves led me give this one a try.

My favorite character was a minor one; a kleptomaniac. If you enjoy reading about organized crime, you will probably like this better than

First in a contemporary series by the authors of the Hanno Stiffeniis series set in Konigsberg. I read the Critique of Criminal Reason, an historical mystery with a nod to Kant, some years ago. The new series features a man working as a ranger in a mountainous national park in Umbria. Cry Wolf is first in series and was published in 2015. Think Wolf is forthcoming in July 2016.

Quick-moving, with short, snappy chapters and a multitude of different characters. This is all about Ndrangheta gangs muscling in outside their home turf, corrupt politicians and police commanders with monstrous egos. A quick and enjoyable enough read, but nothing really memorable or outstanding.

I had a difficult time following the who's who of this, but that might have been all the unfamiliar names. It's neatly crafted and well written, although I'm not sure I"d describe it as a thriller. It was an enjoyable read and I'm interested enough to pick up the next one.
