Hans Tuzzi presents La vita uccide in prosa (Bollati Boringheri, 2018)
September 1988. An obscure employee of the real estate registry is shot dead in his house garden, near the Lambro Park in Milan. Attempted robbery? An accident? The act of some junkie looking for drug money? Or someone looking for revenge?
Hans Tuzzi, nom de plume of Adriano Bon, Italian writer and essayist, is the president of the jury of the Cavaliere Giallo Award. In addition to essays on the history of books and their antiques market, he is the author of a series of popular crime novels set in Milan featuring Commissioner Melis as protagonist.
