“Mediterranean noir is about telling big stories, stories that recount great transformations, stories that denounce what is wrong but at the same time posit the culture of solidarity as an alternative to that of greed and violence.”—Massimo Carlotto

Giorgio Pellegrini, the unforgettable hero of The Goodbye Kiss, has been living an “honest” life for eleven years. But that’s about to change. His lawyer has been playing him, and now Giorgio is forced into service as an unwilling errand boy for an organized crime syndicate. At one time, Giorgio wouldn’t have thought twice about robbing, kidnapping and killing in order to get what he wanted or to get out of a mess like this. But these days he’s too long in the tooth to face his enemies head-on. To get back to his peaceful life as a successful businessman he’s going to have to find another way to shake off the mob. Fortunately, though Giorgio’s circumstances may have changed, deep down he’s still the ruthless killer he used to be.
