Gianrico Carofiglio in conversation with Karen Robinson.



Gianrico Carofiglio in conversation with Karen Robinson.

In occasion of his new book "The Cold Summer", we are proud to host a talk with international bestselling writer, and former anti-Mafia prosecutor, Gianrico Carofiglio, in conversation with Karen Robinson.

Uniquely placed to reveal the insider’s truth about the extent and nature of organised crime in Italy, he will be discussing the backdrop to this novel with the editor of The Times and Sunday Times Crime Club, Karen Robinson, and explaining how he has used his former career to write his acclaimed series of thrillers.


Why did he decide to launch a new introduce a new hero, Pietro Fenoglio - a conflicted, melancholy man, vulnerable yet strong enough to take on the worst of organised crime? His characters are philosophers as well as men of action - how does he perform the literary balancing act of keeping the pace moving while asking the reader to interrogate the deeper questions? And what do his books tell his fellow Italians, and overseas readers, about the state of modern Italy? He will be answering these questions and more.
