Chase Williams Detective Short Stories
**Sneak into someone else's everyday crime in under 1000 words.** The Cutting Right to the Chase series features detective short stories about everyday unusual crimes happening in Tursenia, an Etruscan city in the heart of Italy. The 1000 words per story is a winning formula: those detective short stories are perfect to read between two longer novels, whilst commuting or to have a quick break in your reading routine. **Have a taste of Italy with a twist of mystery: discover the amazing Tursenia and its unusual crimes with Chase.**
Collana Storie Brevi di Giallo e Suspense
La serie di racconti brevi gialli Dritto al punto, Chase! consta di una serie di storie brevi di giallo e suspense che coinvolgono episodi di stra-ordinaria criminalità nella ridente cittadina di Tursenia, in centro Italia. Chase si è trasferito lì per dimenticare il suo passato burrascoso a Londra. Eppure, il suo fiuto investigativo non lo abbandona, e lui non resiste dal ficcanasare. La formula di questa collana di racconti brevi polizieschi è stata particolarmente vincente nel mercato internazionale (qui ci sono i libri in inglese): tutti i racconti gialli constano di mille parole al massimo, per cui queste storie brevi di giallo e suspense sono perfette da leggere tra due libri più lunghi, mentre si è sul tram o semplicemente per spezzare il ritmo del solito tran tran di letture. Credo che questa sia stata una delle ragioni per cui tutti i libri della collana Dritto al Punto, Chase! hanno raggiunto la TOP 100 su Amazon negli Stati Uniti, Inghilterra e Australia e considerati tra i libri gialli più letti nelle categorie di Mystery and Suspense.
