"A sizzling-hot debut that deftly weaves together corrupt politicians, organized crime, and centuries-old tradition." "-Entertainment Weekly" "All of the players in the novel come across as completely believable, because the author avoids the stereotypical, and emphasizes the quirkiness in both large and small characters.

This is the first in a series of Commissario Blume novels, and anyone who reads this one will be looking forward to the next." "-San Francisco Book Review" "Guaranteed to whet the thirst of international crime fiction fans. This promising debut is reminiscent of early Michael Dibdin, and that is more than enough to put Fitzgerald's series on your radar."

"The Dogs of Rome" is an irresistible and wholly original piece of crime fiction."--Joe Weisberg, author of "An Ordinary Spy and Tenth Grade"
