Item description for The Neapolitan Streak (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) by Timothy Holme...

Achille Peroni loves the spicy food and passionate arguments of southern Italy, land of his birth. But fate -- and the Italian police force -- have stuck him in Verona, a city of bean soup and endless problems with the Red Brigades, a vicious gang that relies on bombs and high-profile kidnappings to further its rather fuzzy political aims. When a wealthy general, head of one of Italy's finest Fascist families, goes missing from his palatial estate, the Reds are the most obvious suspects. But Peroni finds himself considering a crime far more subtle and sinister than anything the Reds can dream up. A crime, in fact, the leads all the way back to Romeo and Juliet, the most famous Vernoseses of them all.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Neapolitan Streak (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries)?

Italian intrigue told with British wit  Apr 5, 2008
Set in Verona in 1980, The Neapolitan Streak is the first in a series featuring Inspector Peroni, "the Valentino of the Police Force", a thoroughly likable Neapolitan working in Verona. Its solid whodunit plot involves modern politics and latter-day Montagues & Capulets; the tensions & stereotypes of northern vs southern Italians form an amusing counterpoint to the action. There are plenty of twists & surprises, but perhaps even more of a draw are the understated British humor (the author was British) and the well-drawn characters.

For the squeamish mystery-lover: there's no in-depth gore, just minimal descriptions of the crimes.

This will appeal to anyone who likes an Italian setting and/or dry British humor. Although Inspector Peroni is quite unlike Jonathan Argyll, I imagine these qualities would endear this book to anyone who enjoyed Iain Pears' Art History Mystery series.

I hope Felony & Mayhem is planning on reprinting the other 4 mysteries by this author (The Devil & the Dolce Vita, The Assissi Murders, At the Lake of Sudden Death and A funeral of gondolas). Highly recommended.
