What does a fanatical nineteenth-century Greek collector have to do with a Greek-Italian bookseller and a group of Italians bent on vengeance? The latter have decided to execute a number of rapists and murderers who have been released from prison, in response to what they see as miscarriages of justice?
A man who is ready to do anything except take a risk and a charming woman of exceedingly dubious credibility are just two of the heroes of The Lost Library of Dimitris Mostras, where Dimitris Mamaloukas comments on his characters with discreetly sarcastic humour.
A crime novel on a Borgesian theme, it is set mainly in Rome and partly in Venice, where the intrigue is built on cleverly planned reversals, which push the plot forward effectively.
