Download Turisti in giallo (Italian Edition) by Alicia Giménez-Bartlett,Marco Malvaldi,Antonio Manzini,Santo PDF

By Alicia Giménez-Bartlett,Marco Malvaldi,Antonio Manzini,Santo Piazzese,Francesco Recami,Gaetano Savatteri

Il delitto ama viaggiare. Anzi, da Arthur Conan Doyle e Agatha Christie in poi, il crimine quando si mescola con lo sradicamento del viaggiatore offre pagine gialle di accresciuto mistero, frutta più complicated costruzioni di intreccio. Le piste sbiadiscono, i moventi diventano più confusi, più ingarbugliati gli enigmi quando vengono da lontano con i turisti. Gli autori di 'Turisti in giallo' sono tra gli scrittori che più hanno rinnovato il poliziesco in questi anni. Un successo letterario che trova le sue basi nella personalità umana che resta impressa dei loro investigatori e nell’ambientazione insolita, quasi eccentrica, in cui si muovono. E nel racconto giallo, genere delicato e prezioso da costruire di cui Sellerio ha con questa antologia completato l. a. nona raccolta a tema, questi caratteri risaltano nella loro pienezza.
