Friuli on the road (The third 2011). It's to get out of “New topics” his work on Dacia Maraini, the writer who is also in the jury. Now back with a new yellow-smelling tavern and true things. Born on the border (between Italy and Slovenia, but also metaphorically speaking across multiple genres). What makes you think and indignant (on the many "past that does not pass" the last war). And that amuses, continuing the tradition of thrillers authoritatively linked to gastronomy. Without being a Pepe Carvalho (the investigator of the Catalan chef son Manuel Vázquez Montalbán), Dragon Furlan is without doubt an excellent fork, He knows dishes and chains better than a Artusi. His idol (apart from Arthur Antunes Coimbra Zico he said and his Udinese) Carlin Petrini's, guru di Slow Food. Furlan embodies the peasant soul frank and true: if you can, tasted the taste of shrimp caught alive in the Natisone. Rustic, immorality, of country, nostalgically Pasolini, Diego is an inspector, although many say it for indigestion media commissioner, "The Montalbano". And in fact he was born in Colloredo di Monte Albano, like the Saints ancestors. Lead a sly Guzzi California with whom he enjoys attending festivals and chic restaurants with the eternal girlfriend Pearl. They call it "the inspector of the decrease happy", for her love for the things of the past. Enjoy fine wine Cividale and surroundings. He does not see the dead from 1995. But in the first yellow of the series soon must shake off the rust. Why it is there to explain that there is a dead man with no name at the bottom of a well with a bullet in the forehead. Exploded moreover from rare weapon, in use during World War II but also the years of lead. Diego is an inspector Maigret as the Saints think of Friuli, but as we said before also inspired to the figure of the bearded "Papa" Hemingway and today's mountain to a literary myth, Mauro Corona. As mentioned, the quiet provincial life, first interrupted only by incidentini, thefts and incidents of wear, It is broken by a murder in a remote high-altitude village. And so from the provincial policeman, including herrings and dust of silent archives, It comes a detective sui generis, you better think draining glasses, driving over the bike a vintage Zastava, It plunges in the dishes of the local culinary tradition and is not ashamed to have a mother – she too "furlan" to the core – with whom to share the house. And after the spring, He could only get a fiery summer, and it is reasonable to assume that there will be for the Saints and his Maigret furlano other blood seasons and hunts mystery: we talk of an autumn already being processed and then who knows if we get to winter. Meanwhile, the second novel entitled The summer does not forgive always comes out of Mondadori (It will be presented at the Ubik library of Como 17 May at 18) for the Agency's care Santachiara, the same who handled the publishing and literary interests of Roberto Saviano and other famous writers.

The hottest summer in recent years is arroventando Friuli, and Inspector Dragon Furlan is finally enjoying a beach holiday with the eternal girlfriend Pearl. But the long-awaited holiday is interrupted by a phone call pm Santoliquido: on the bed of the river Natisone was found a corpse with a crushed face shots of kalashnikov. Who is the victim? And because the murderess he has persisted over the body so as to disfigure the face? Furlan falls immediately into service to try to solve the case: but the clues are few and contradictory, and the torrid embrace the AFA does not help to think… especially as, not to give a Pearl sorrow, Dragon goes back and forth between the beach and the police secretly, citing as an excuse physical problems and the vagaries of Mother Vendramina. While the national press mounts case “Monster Natisone” and trudging investigations, there runs well the second dead: It is happening in the peaceful province of Friuli? It's the heat that gives the head or behind the trail of blood hides a terrible enemy, whose name alone is enough to evoke ancient horrors and creepy? Drago Furlan, air of rude peasant Inspector, between a drink at the inn's Tarcisio, a meal of tasty Frico and a walk on the waterfront, He will have to give the bottom of all her sleuthing to get to the bottom of the mystery. It should also hurry, saw that the killer seems to have targeted just him… And in this second adventure Furlan inspector gives another great test of his narrative talent: well to keep us in suspense in a story full of twists, There still gives once the portrait of sly province of Friuli, with its glimpses of paradise in which - unexpectedly - you can even burst hell. A yellow-smelling tavern, smells of yellow Ribolla and schnapps viper. But even blood, sweat and tears. And deadly blows of Ak-74, the bad version after appropriate modifications of the already tremendous submachine Kalashnikov Ak-47. Born always on the frontier (between Italy and the "Balkan corridor" where centuries ago the Turks arrived). It makes you think and indignant. And fun. This time its an inspector-farmer who in the first novel was struggling with the shadows and the ghosts of World War II now investigating the potential third, ie the threat of global terrorism. Rustic, immorality, nostalgically Pasolini, Diego was born in Colloredo di Monte Albano, like the Saints ancestors. Lead a sly Guzzi California and even a shooting Zastava vintage. His eternal Pearl fiancee reluctantly parked in Lignano Sabbiadoro. His, in that of Cividale and surroundings, on the banks of the Natisone soaked with blood, He is dealing with events that disrupt the province under the heat. The father of "Maigret del Friuli" is renowned poet, as well as a philologist. It has also successfully as a translator, in the wake of a great hero of the action literature as James Bond. He has just published by Adelphi new Italian version of a masterpiece by Ian Fleming, "Dr. No", after having experimented with "Live and Let Die". "Fleming has helped me a lot – dice – in the construction of stories that revolve around my peasant Inspector. It is a big man by tender side, it always conflicts with much larger problems than he, in a borderland ". As mentioned, after the spring and summer, it is reasonable to expect other seasons. "The novel will have a sequel – announces Saints – The serial is a challenge, you measure yourself characters that change over time, reveal new shades. Translate Ian Fleming teaches to appreciate, a hero, Also weaknesses and shadows. But the yellow has its own rules: It requires discipline and patience, like every work of good craftsmanship. I write every morning, Before the orchard ".
