    So, having read Stefania Mattana s Cutting Right to the Chase, which I described as a little wonder , I moved on from the short stories to her second novel Pull The Trigger I must read the first now which allowed me to get to know a littlewell, actually, quite a lot about Chase Williams, the ex detective, ex pat gone Italiano, living in Tursenia, a regular little Guernsey without the sea, although farinteresting than Bergerac could ever be.What I got to know about Chase, who So, having read Stefania Mattana s Cutting Right to the Chase, which I described as a little wonder , I moved on from the short stories to her second novel Pull The Trigger I must read the first now which allowed me to get to know a littlewell, actually, quite a lot about Chase Williams, the ex detective, ex pat gone Italiano, living in Tursenia, a regular little Guernsey without the sea, although farinteresting than Bergerac could ever be.What I got to know about Chase, who is frequently called upon by the Tursenian police to help out in investigations of the murderous variety, given his experience working for the MET, was pleasantly surprising in that he s what Mattana would call a regular guy as I said in my last review I love the Italiano Americano phraseology going on within the narrative it s all fun fly on the wall stuff, especially with regard to the descriptions of Chase himself Chase is anything but an alpha hero, as is the case with many of these kinds of novels he has his flaws unlike, say, the heroic Betti, ballistics expert and Italian godlike creature.Suffice to say, I see these novels, in time, and Chase, becoming very popular, if Mattana endeavours to keep with her formula.Pull The Trigger in an excellent novel, and is based around a series of gunshots, and the painstaking process of just who no, I ll say noWhat I will say is that it s quite evident that Mattana has done her homework relating to detective work, as well as taken her time in writing the book a book which reads in the style of a painstaking process , thus creating the perfect atmosphere for such, and so the perfect crime novel for any fan of the genre Good show, Stefania
