Win a trip to Rome for two with The American by Nadia Dalbuono


The AmericanRome may be the Eternal City, but as Detective Leone Scamarcio knows, its baroque beauty only masks the corruption within. When he's called to an apparent suicide a stone's throw from Vatican City, Scamarcio is immediately troubled by similarities with the 1982 murder of Roberto Calvi, dubbed 'God's Banker'€™. The resulting investigation uncovers a web of political intrigue that spans 9/11, the CIA, Vatican corruption and the Mafia, leaving Scamarcio racing to uncover the truth before it'€™s too late.
 

This is the gripping story of The American, the second Leone Scamarcio thriller from Anglo-Italian crime writer Nadia Dalbuono. She's been compared to Donna Leon for her whip-smart, unputdownable thrillers, which the Sun calls "gripping"€™, and bestselling crime author Lesley Thomson calls "€˜disquieting, illuminating, and utterly absorbing."
