Item description for A Walk in the Dark by Howard Curtis Gianrico Carofiglio...

Praise for Involuntary Witness:

"Raises the standard for crime fiction. Carofiglio's deft touch has given us a story that is both literary and gritty-and one that speeds along like the best legal thrillers. His insights into human nature-good and bad-are breathtaking."-Jeffery Deaver

"A stunner. The veracity of the setting and the humanity of the lawyer make the novel a courtroom drama of rare quality."-The Times

"Compelling novel written by a prosecutor, the scourge of local criminals who likes to write books that make his readers cry. Reveals both a flawed legal system and debunks the myth of the macho Italian man."-Observer

"Carofiglio writes crisp, ironical novels that are as much love stories and philosophi-cal treatises as they are legal thrillers."-The New Yorker

When Martina accuses her ex-boyfriend-the son of a powerful local judge-of assault and battery, no witnesses can be persuaded to testify on her behalf, and one lawyer after another refuses to represent her. Guido Guerrieri knows the case could bring his legal career to a messy end, but he cannot resist the appeal of a hopeless cause. Nor can he deny an attraction to Sister Claudia, the young woman in charge of the shelter where Martina is living, who shares his love of martial arts and his virulent hatred of injustice.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Walk in the Dark?

terific Italian thriller  Oct 4, 2006
A Walk in the Dark
Gianrico Carofiglio
Bitter Lemon, Oct 2006, $14.95
ISBN: 1904738176

In Bari, Italy, defense lawyer Avvocato Guido Guerrieri earns a living providing legal council to petty criminals; his business depends on returning customers as most of his clients are repeat offenders. However, for whatever reason deep in his pyche, Guido has a soft spot for the underdog especially abused females so at times he will take on impossible cases.

This is one of those times when Guerrieri turns champion because to his chagrin he is immediately attracted to Sister Claudia, director of Safe House, who asks him to help one of her volunteers now hiding at the shelter. The woman moved in with a wealthy Prince Charming who turned into an abusive beast. He beat her in public twice and in private several times. Because of his connections, the carabineri, the police and a judge deny the woman's plea for protection from his harming her. Two lawyers have said no, but Guerrieri agrees to take on the case of protecting the ex girlfriend Martina Fumai, Sistaer Claudia and the shelter from Ernesto Scaianatico, son of of a criminal appeals court judge. However, Guido will learn the hard way why his peers said no.

This terific legal thriller stars a fascinating protagonist who normally is indifferent and bumbling when it comes to his typical clients; however some cases fire up his inner gut turning him into a capable caring attorney and much more. Guido's two capers (see INVOLUNTARY WITNESS) are legal noirs as he struggles to insure his clients remain safe against powerful adversaries who use money and abuse of power to insure victory over justice. Gianrico Carofiglio provides a terific Italian thriller
