About meHi, I'm Cesario Picca, I was born and bred in Salento (South Italy) thanks to my parents Francesco and Antonia. For 25 years I worked as a crime and judicial reporter, now I devote my time to my thrillers.
I have already published (2005) the juridical essay 'Ungagged - the developing concept of freedom of the press'.
My love for thrillers blossomed with 'Murder in the Tremiti Isles' in which the main character is a reporter from Salento, Rosario Saru Santacroce, who will soon be involved in many other intrigues and adventures with the same likeable verve and curiosity.
For example, now you can find Saru Santacroce in the new thriller Gioco mortale - delitto nel mondo della trasgressione. And the third adventure is arriving with the title Il dio danzante - delitto nel Salento. The only English version of my thrillers is Murder in the Tremiti Isles, the translation of Tremiti di paura.
In 2002 I was awarded the Piero Passetti prize for "chronicler of the year". I have been a speaker or moderator at numerous conferences and has participated in many radio and television broadcasts.

About my libraryThe protagonist of my thrillers is Rosario Saru Santacroce, a forty year old Salento reporter who lives in Bologna and works for a local newspaper. A rough and rational man, talkative, charismatic, ready to savor every moment of life as if it was the last. Nicknamed Saru (the nickname that is given in Salento to those named like him), he covers the city's crime beat. As often happens, occasionally work also follows him on holidays because a real reporter is destined (almost) never to unplug...
