Review quote:

Praise for The Puppeteer

“The dialogue is a joy...[a] taut, ingenious novel. Long live Trotti.”
—Financial Times
 
“A complex, tautly-written thriller.”
—Woman's World

“Commissario Trotti is clever and tough....His investigation is fascinating to an American reader because it offers insights into the Italian power structure, which is far more interesting than it is stable.”
—Newsday
 
“A reader has to be quick on his mental feet to follow Williams through [The Puppeteer], but the reading is worth the challenge.”
—Charlaine Harris
 
“A fine novel for those seeking something a little out of the ordinary...a phlegmatic, intellectual detective, and a North Italian milieu flavored with oregano, olive oil, left-wing polities and crime....The plotting is crisp and the details pungent.”
—Chicago Sun-Times
 
“Castaing, Maigret and their colleagues will welcome Piero Trotti to their ranks with pleasure...expert dialogue, realistic characterisation and evocative sense of time and place....[A] sophisticated thriller.”
—Irish Times
 
“Trotti is a detective one would be happy to meet again.”
—Sunday Independent (Ireland)
 
“A first-rate series of procedurals....The mouthwatering glimpses of the Italian countryside provide just enough flavor of everyday Italy to make the revelations convincing. The writing is taut and exact and the tensions among characters and between past and present are often subtly drawn.”
—San Jose Mercury News
 
 “Packed with deception, incident and intrigue.”
—Bolton Evening News
 

“Williams, a gifted storyteller, has created another stupendous mystery.”
—Publishers Weekly
 
“[The Puppeteer’s] storyline is involved, revolving around an Italian society of twisted family loyalties and bureaucratic deceptions. Trotti himself is a creature of single-mindedness and brutal effectiveness, stripping away layers of red tape and exposing a colorful collection of suspects. Solid genre fane.”
—PLR


Praise for the Commissario Piero Trotti series 


"Subtle, tense and gripping."
—Val McDermid

"A chilling education, a scalpel-sharp exploration of Italy's body politic. Timothy Williams knows the ABC of corruptionAndreotti, Berlusconi, Craxiand is a convincing and compelling voice."
Ian Rankin

"Stylish and excellent. Those who like Dibdin will eat it up."
Lionel Davidson

"A delight."
The Observer, "10 Best Modern European Crime Writers" 

"The ageing moody Trotti is a subtle and convincing creation; the other characters are portrayed with depth and sensitivity, and the Italian atmosphere is authentically beguiling. First-rate in every way."
The Times

"Williams' pared-down descriptions and staccato dialogue are a constant pleasure."Financial Times 

"Superb."
—The Scotsman

"Breathtakingly good."
—Evening Standard

"Stupendous."
—Publishers Weekly

"Simple but stylish...convincingly Continental...[Williams's] plotting [is] impeccable."
Time Out

"Big themes, lots of cynicism and the overall impression of powerlessness when faced with corruption....Timothy Williams is a major contender."
