Synopsis : Aurelio Zen of Rome's elite Criminalpol is back, but nobody's supposed to know it. After months in hospital recovering from a bomb attack on his car, he is lying low under a false name at a beach resort on the Tuscan coast, waiting to testify in an anti-Mafia trial. Zen has clear instructions to sit back and enjoy the classic Italian beach holiday. But Zen is getting restless and, as an alarming number of people are dropping dead around him, it seems just a matter of time before the Mafia manage to finish the job they bungled months before on a lonely Sicilian road. Abruptly, the pleasant monotony of beach life is cut short as Zen finds himself transported to a remote and strange world. But wherever he goes trouble follows. He must rely on his innate ability to navigate treacherous waters in order to stay alive.

Quatrième de couverture: ?Dibdin has an abundance of gifts: bracing wit, the ability to wring unexpected poignance out of dark comedy, and a gift for striking imagery.? ? The Wall Street Journal

? And Then You Die will leave readers with a sly smile and a new appreciation for Dibdin?s versatility. . . . If you haven?t made Aurelio?s acquaintance, this is a great chance to dip your toe in the water.? ? Rocky Mountain News

?[ And Then You Die] has an abundance of food, wit and action, with enough mistaken victims falling dead around Zen to put him up there with Peter Sellers in his Pink Panther days.? ? Chicago Tribune

?Dibdin is a charming and amusing prose stylist with a subtle but deeply humorous delivery. . . . A charming novel.? ? San Jose Mercury News

?This is Dibdin?s eighth Zen novel, and none has been better.? ? The Boston Globe

?Dibdin [writes] with his usual arch style of ironic storytelling, offering a graceful tour of Italy?s beachfront pecking order, class tics and age-old pleasures and prejudices.? ? Washington Post Book World

?Michael Dibdin?s texture and detail transport the reader to an Italian beach resort, a prison island, [and] a pub-crawl in Iceland. Aurelio Zen?s finely tuned third eye and inner ear infuse this crime story with mysticism.? ? Charlotte Observer

?Dibdin has created an interesting alternative to the fast-paced, smart-assed, hard-boiled detective genre. His version is full of hidden half-truths, twisted, smiling, power-hungry authorities, and enough smoke and mirrors to keep you guessing?a modern take on the medieval mystery.? ? The Irish Times

?Dibdin is . . . [a] philosopher, methodically and subtly creating a picture of human nature at its most complex yet simplest. . . . The book holds the reader until the end.? ? Ashbury Park Press

?A classic mystery that easily captures the true essence of the crime genre.? ? The Anniston Star

?Dibdin?s trademark humor and dark wit is in good form. . . . An ingenious, over-the-top twist . . . sets the scene.? ? Portsmouth Herald

?The tightly woven style and dark characters echo those of Georges Simenon.? ? Toledo Blade

?Dibdin?s Zen novels effortlessly paint a sharper portrait of Italy than any guidebook, cookbook or academic history. . . . And Then You Die is more meditative than the other Zen thrillers, beautifully crafted and evocative, with the perfect balance of plot and rueful digression.? ? The Guardian (London)
