New Italian crime fiction

I've had an email alerting me about a new publisher, Hersilia Press, which is focusing on Italian crime fiction. Their first book is Inspector Cataldo's Criminal Summer by Luigi Guicciardi which is the first in a ten (so far) book series and will be published in March 2010.

In a quiet holiday town in the Italian Apennines, during a torrid summer, a string of gruesome deaths stirs up trouble in the local community: a suspected suicide which Inspector Cataldo is called in to investigate brings to the surface shady events belonging to the past, and a mysterious foreigner shakes up the delicate social balance of a group of friends who have a lot to hide.

I like the sound of this series. And very brave to start up a publishing business just now - my hat is off to them!
