9780679779117: Cosi Fan Tutti: An Aurelio Zen Mystery

An Aurelio Zen Novel

Michael Dibdin's overburdened Italian police inspector has been transferred to Naples, where the rule of law is so lax that a police station may double as a brothel. But this time, having alienated superiors with his impolitic zealousness in every previous posting, Zen is determined not to make waves.

Too bad an American sailor (who may be neither American nor a sailor) knifes one of his opposite numbers in Naples's harbor, and some local garbage collectors have taken to moonlighting in homicide. And when Zen becomes embroiled in a romantic intrigue involving love-sick gangsters and prostitutes who pass themselves off as Albanian refugees, all Naples comes to resemble the set of the Mozart opera of the same title. Bawdy, suspenseful, and splendidly farcical, the result is an irresistible offering from a maestro of mystery.

Review :

The career of Italian policeman Auerlio Zen has certainly had its operatic ups and downs: as a nasty colleague points out, "In Milan, you wrongfully arrest a man for the Tondelli murder, and 20 years later he tries to kill you after his release from prison. In Rome, you single-handedly 'solve' the Moro kidnapping, unfortunately too late to save the victim." So it's fitting that Michael Dibdin has used a real comic opera by Mozart and Lorenzo Daponte as the frame for his latest Zen outing. A Northern fish in Naples's polluted waters, Venetian-born Zen seems to have found the perfect job to make himself invisible, as head of the harbor police. But several tangled plots--including one that deftly turns the Daponte stew of unsuitable suitors and fake Albanians on its head--conspire to bring Auerlio into the spotlight one more time. Two of Dibdin's best Zen encounters, Ratking and Dead Lagoon, are available in paperback.

From the Back Cover :

"[Dibdin's] work deserves comparison with such giants as Raymond Chandler." --Portland Oregonian

"A pure delight." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Cosi Fan Tutti is a delightfully inventive confusion of mistaken identities, willful impersonations, mixed motives and double lives--all played con brio." --Wall Street Journal

"[With] vivacious style, razor-sharp plotting, [it is] a terrifically enjoyable entertainment." --Washington Post Book World

Description du livre Random House USA Inc, United States, 2004. Paperback. État : New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Aurelio Zen is in Naples, commanding the lowly harbor detail. It s the first time an outsider has been given this position, but Zen is not just any outsider. He s a Criminalpol operative who works directly out of the Ministry in Rome. But with politics in Rome in flux again, Zen is satisfied with his posting; if nothing else, he s out of Headquarters sight and mind. I do not feel the slightest degree of professional involvement or responsibility, he tells his staff. Just pretend I m not here and carry on as you always have done. Which makes them all happy and leaves Zen time for a private life as Alfonso Zembla - the name formed in the deaf ear of a wealthy, seductive widow with several reasons for asking Dottor Zembla s help in dissuading her daughters from marrying their possibly Mafia-associated fiances. This Zen might be able to do (his plan involves Neapolitan prostitutes masquerading as Albanian refugees) except for the sudden spate of ominous graffiti, marauding garbage truck crews, officer impersonations, and VIP disappearances he is expected to solve. Which in turn might be possible if Zen weren t being mistaken for the head of Naples most powerful and feared clan. N° de réf. du libraire AAS9780679779117
