Product description


A Times UK Book of the Month

Praise for Flowers over the Inferno

"Superintendent Teresa Battaglia, a criminal profile expert, is in her sixties, overweight, lonely, diabetic, full of the ailments of aging--and delightful. It's rare that such a character enters crime fiction for the first time, and with such gripping impact."
--The Times

"Creepy and evocative . . . But what gives this novel particular appeal is the sixty-something central character, whose abrasive manner hides a warm heart."
--The Guardian

"Ilaria Tuti's Flowers over the Inferno is a stunning debut; a deliciously dark and action-packed thriller that is also deeply moving, even profound. With a heroine unlike any other and a beautifully crafted sense of place, Tuti's gorgeous prose paints a compelling portrait of a small Alpine town's secrets and the woman tasked with uncovering them. I loved this book."
--Karen Dionne, internationally bestselling author of The Marsh King's Daughter

"Teresa Battaglia is one of the most interesting detectives to emerge in recent years; flawed but full of heart, sarcastic yet still commanding loyalty from her team. Flowers over the Inferno is an astonishing debut."
--M. W. Craven, author of The Puppet Show

"In Teresa Battaglia, Ilaria Tuti has created not only a protagonist, but a real, three-dimensional person who goes beyond the page."
--Donato Carrisi, author of The Girl in the Fog

"Tuti has managed the near-impossible in creating a genuinely unique character in Teresa Battaglia. I was rooting for her from the start as she expertly steers a creepy murder investigation in an atmospheric Alpine setting."
--Sarah Ward, author of In Bitter Chill

"A clockwork plot and a suitable sense of place which verges on both the ominous and the exotic, this was a major hit back in its own country, and one understands why. Impeccable crime writing."
--Crime Time

"A thriller that enters into the corners of the soul, and introduces an author to watch."
--Marie Claire (Italy)

"Ilaria Tuti's debut is a thriller, but through mystery and death, it speaks of life."
--Vanity Fair (Italy)

"Tuti's thriller satisfies on multiple fronts . . . Battaglia's armor, bolstered by the very physical and emotional problems that undermine it, occasionally cracks to reveal glimpses of humanity."
--Wired (Italy)

"The most highly anticipated noir debut of 2018 . . . set in the chill of the Dolomites and that of the soul."

"If you are looking for a chilling murder mystery set in a landscape so majestic that it takes your breath away and fills your soul, head off to the Alps with the intriguing Detective Superintendent Teresa Battaglia . . . A stunning and atmospheric debut . . . Exciting, ice-coated, chilling and thrilling, Flowers over the Inferno welcomes readers to the deepest, darkest shades of Italian Noir."
--Lancashire Post

"Tuti--who lives in the far northeast of Italy--has produced in Flowers over the Inferno a debut novel of real skill . . . The real accomplishment here lies in the distinctive heroine, with the beleaguered Teresa not just engaged in a struggle with a ruthless killer but also with her own body."
--European Literature Network

Book Description
