Tom Benjamin's debut novel 'A Quiet Death in Italy" was published this summer to acclaim from the Daily Mail, the Morning Star and all points between. It's a murder mystery, following ex-pat English detective Daniel Leicester as he descends into the Bologna underworld to investigate the death of a 1970s radical. Tom worked at Scotland Yard before emigrating to Italy and learned Italian by working at a homeless shelter in Bologna. Here, he, discusses the background to the book and introduces the Spotify soundtrack he has made to accompany key scenes. (Stream the playlist at this link.) Hosted by Duncan Steer.
