"The Deliverance of Evil is one of the most unusual (and successful) recent thrillers."--Antonio Gnoli, La Repubblica
"[Constantini] delivers compelling drama... the gripping strength of the novel lies in its passionate portrayal of a corrupt and criminal Italy, from seedy traffickers to the Vatican."--Marcel Berlins, The Times
"[A] tale of personal and political corruption, expediency and revenge engages... Costantini has created a fascinating protagonist, first seen as a thirtysomething womaniser with fascist sympathies, and then as an older, sadder and wiser man, bent on making amends for past mistakes."--Laura Wilson, The Guardian
"[A] commanding debut thriller.... Costantini spins a politically charged, Machiavellian tale of fiendish complexity."--Publishers Weekly
"Utterly compelling"--Peter May, author of The Blackhouse

"Rich with fascinating political history, filled with brilliant psychological insight, and a nonstop thriller... Bravo!"--Jeffery Deaver, The October List
"Readers can immerse themselves in la dolce vita as Costantini's charismatic detective, Commissario Michele Balistreri, solves a complex mystery centered on the nature of evil.... Costantini tells an engrossing story of corruption and revenge, until near the end, when he kills off all the suspects, leaving little doubt as to the identity of the murderer."--Anna Creer, The Sidney Morning Herald
"In his debut Costantini has proven himself an absolute master."--Antonio D'Orrico, Corriere della Sera
"Crime stories offer a fine vehicle for state-of-the-nation investigations. Italy is more of a challenge than well-ordered Scandinavia, but Roberto Costantini rises to it with ease... sprawling, violent and beset by a tortured morality, this is a compelling vision of modern Italy."--Mail on Sunday
"An intricate and ambitious thriller that tells of our country and our times, of the tensions, madness, and its heartfelt humanity."--Elle (Italy)
"A promising debut... [a] complex crime novel that moves from savage murder to the political and social realities of contemporary Italy."--Kirkus Reviews
"Completely riveting... This is a take-no-prisoners view of a corrupt society and a guide on what it takes to survive and prosper. The detail of the police procedural is brilliantly managed and, as we get closer to the end, the thriller wattage increases with increasingly desperate police officers chasing their tails as bullets fly and a key person is kidnapped."--San Francisco Book Review
