After what seems like several lifetimes as a policeman, Commissario Trotti can’t wait to retire to the villa he jointly owns with his cousin, where his biggest concern will be keeping track of his chickens. But things keep getting in the way of his plans. Like Fabrizio Bassi, for instance. With his camel-hair coat and sallow complexion, Bassi is notorious—he was on the Polizia di Stato for ten years before being dismissed and setting up his own detective agency. The last thing a cop with retirement in mind wants is to be associated with a seedy PI—especially one with a bee in his bonnet about a murdered doctor and a conspiracy theory to match. So what if someone wants Bassi dead? Despite his many enemies, he’s lasted this long. And amid all of this chaos, Trotti’s boss wants him to head up a child abuse unit. Big Italy is a rich, ambiguous mystery of politics, corruption, love … and death.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Wake up and smell the grappa. Big Italy is a chilling education, a scalpel-sharp exploration of Italy’s body politic. Timothy Williams knows the ABC of corruption—Andreotti, Berlusconi, Craxi—and is a convincing and compelling voice.”

    Ian Rankin

  • “Commissario Trotti is an inspired creation.”

    Sunday Times

  • “Splendidly realised in four previous novels, Timothy Williams’s morose Italian [Commissario Trotti] is contemplating retirement…Williams’s pared-down descriptions and staccato dialogue are a constant pleasure.”

    Financial Times
