The Washington Post: "...a memoir of the two years he spent on the lam in Europa and Mexico, the identities he took on, how he was betrayed by a Mexican lawyer—in short, 'the daily life, the behavior, and the routine of someone who is one the run.'"

Date: Apr 23 2007

“I am a notorious legal case,” writes Massimo Carlotto in The Fugitive. “I hold the dubious distinction of being the longest and most drawn-out case in the history of Italian justice, as well as the most controversial.” In 1976, when he was a 19-year-old student in Italy, he came upon a woman dying of stab wounds and went into a police station to report the murder. A member of a left-wing political group, he was promptly charged with the crime and arrested.

Carlotto, now an internationally acclaimed thriller writer, spent six years in prison, enduring 11 trials, until he was pardoned in 1993. The Fugitive is primarily a memoir of the two years he spent on the lam in Europa and Mexico, the identities he took on, how he was betrayed by a Mexican lawyer—in short, “the daily life, the behavior, and the routine of someone who is one the run.”
