A place for everything that doesn't fit anywhere else

An excellent review of Any Human Face in The American in Italia. This is the best bit:
Andrew's solitary life suddenly becomes a thriller in itself, as Lambert takes the wraps off dangerous and age-old Italian conspiracies. Yet the larger tale belongs to Andrew himself. Through colloquial, reflective prose, "Any Human Face" drags the reader into intimate contact with Andrew and his loneliness, while slaughter and a long-secret kidnapping conspiracy keep the plot racing.
Lambert's novel provides powerful insight into the sinister nature of Italian power, and into human solitude.
