Danger is his Business
Gianrico Carofiglio used to be in Italy’s senate and was also an anti-mafia prosecutor, a dangerous job, as he shows in his latest novel. The Cold Summer. Now an international best-selling crime writer, Carofiglio talks to Sarah Mayor Cox about what makes crime novels so popular. How much does he take from real life? Do the good guys always win? And do younger generations of readers expect the same kind of stories as those brought up on classic crime?
