'Devoured it. Great characters and brilliant use of the history and architecture of Bologna. His best yet' Trevor Wood

In the sweltering heat of a Bologna summer, a murderer plans their
piece de resistance...

Only in Bologna reads the headline in the Carlino after a professor of music is apparently murdered leaving the opera. But what looks like an open-and-shut case begins to fall apart when English detective Daniel Leicester is tasked with getting the accused man off, and a trail that begins among Bologna's close-knit classical music community leads him to suspect there may be a serial killer at large in the oldest university in the world. And as Bologna trembles with aftershocks following a recent earthquake, the city begins to give up her secrets...

Praise for Requiem in La Rossa

'I absolutely loved this book. Bologna is perfectly captured, the crime plot is fresh and intriguing, and the characterisation remains spot on. I found myself totally immersed and swept through this stunner of a story in 24 hours. Highly, highly recommend' Philippa East

'An atmospheric, intelligent crime novel that is an intricate portrait of the heart of Bologna. Beautiful, gripping, and very clever' Victoria Dowd

'A brilliant, involving crime novel' Louise Hare

'Clever and beautifully written... his best yet' Louise Fein

'I was so hooked on story, I read the whole novel in a couple of days despite trying to make it last as I didn't want it to end'
Mystery People

Praise for Tom Benjamin

'The locale is brought to life . . . the plot keeps you guessing' The Times

'A slow-burning, tense and brooding thriller' The Herald Scotland

'Tom Benjamin's debut novel blows the lid off a political cauldron in which Leftist agitators, property moguls, the police and city elders struggle for survival and dominance' Daily Mail

'It's an immensely promising debut, which leaves the reader feeling they really know the city.' Morning Star
'Another great crime novel set in Bologna' Reader Review

'The mystery
smolders away nicely and the wrap-up throws some curve balls. Another indulgent offering in this rewarding series.' Reader Review

“I devoured this book in a day”

I devoured this book in a day. And I knew that the moment I saw a map of Bologna at the beginning of the book. (Which, for the sake of fictional necessity, the author made some things up. But wow! Just the same..)... More
