The book

"Massimo Carlotto has a history as riveting as any novel." —Chicago Tribune

After serving years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit, Massimo Carlotto received a presidential pardon in 1993. The first book he wrote as a free man was The Fugitive telling of his years on the run from a politically motivated murder charge. This gritty tale takes readers from the French underworld to a Mexico besieged by guerilla warfare. Virtually a handbook on how to live life on the lamb, The Fugitive is also a vibrant novel full of vivid underworld characters and breathtaking moments that Carlotto recounts in the cool, lucid prose that has become his trademark.

The author

Massimo Carlotto
Massimo Carlotto was born in Padua, Italy. In addition to the many titles in his extremely popular “Alligator” series, he is also the author of The Fugitive, Death’s Dark Abyss, Poisonville, Bandit Love, and At the End of a Dull Day. One of Italy’s most popular authors and a major exponent of the Mediterranean Noir novel, Carlotto has been compared with many of the most important American hardboiled crime writers.
