… Carlo Lucarelli. The final book in the DeLuca Trilogy. (My comments on the first two: (THE DAMNED SEASON by…, CARTE BLANCHE by Carlo Lucarelli .) Did I say book two concluded with a nice segue to book three? Guess I should have read book three first, because it picks up 3 years later and says nothing to resolve the ending of book two. Police Commissario DeLuca continues as the most frustrated homicide investigator in post-WWII Italy. The novelette is nicely translated from Italian. I recommend it, to finish the series, though DeLuca’s foibles and peccadilloes are somewhat formulaic by this time.
