The 4-star rating is a clue that I loved this book. I have been getting into crime noir (with a touch of humour) with the likes of Maria Angelica Bosco, Frederic Dard, Augustus de Angelus and even Caimh McDonnell - and to this group I would add Mark Toscano.

"Accused" is flavoured with local references and language, is both hard-hitting and at times, slightly humourous; is addictive and highly readable. Told in the first person (alternating) narrative by two brothers, we are taken on a roller-coa

In Accused, the reader meets the Corsaro brothers, Fabrizio and Roberto. The brothers alternate the telling of the crime story in a first person narration.

This book gets 4 stars for a number of reasons that other reviewers have spoken about: 1. the shifting narrative between 2 brothers 2. the social/politcal/physical ambience of Sicily. Although elements of the brothers' personalities and behaviour didn't always appeal, there was an honesty to the story telling that was admirable. This is a good murder mystery but also a good exploration of families.
