Chris Petit is swept up in Guiseppe Genna's Europe-wide conspiracy that feels like a mixture of Dennis Wheatley and La Dolce Vita, In the Name of Ishmael. For much the same reason, In the Name of Ishmael, a political thriller pegged to historical fact, names Italy as the country of conspiracy, adding, "The United States of Advertising are dilettantes when it comes to conspiracy. The Italians have a history. To have a history means to have conspiracies. Genna's conspiracy is a compulsive, even voluptuous affair, parallel to those explored in cinema by Francesco Rosi, in Illustrious Corpses and his case history, The Mattei Affair.

Giuseppe Genna was born in Milan in 1969. In the Name of Ishmael is his first US publication. From Publishers Weekly

Giuseppe Genna was born in Milan in 1969. From Publishers Weekly: A terrorist gang headed by the mysterious Ishmael of the title is the target of two police investigations, one in 1962 and the other in 2001, in this intricate novel of suspense and intrigue set in Milan.

Milan, 1962. Detective David Montorsi is obsessed with the murder of a young child found buried under a WWII monument. His lone investigation leads him to an elusive figure named Ishmael. Milan, 2001. Detective Guido Lopez investigates the random killing of a stranger on the street. He becomes ensnared in a plot-orchestrated by Ishmael-which will ultimately threaten the security of the West. In their parallel quests to uncover the identity of the killer, both men are led ever closer to the seemingly omnipotent yet invisible Ishmael-who may not only direct the deaths of innocents but determine the fates of nations. In the Name of Ishmael features two interlocking stories that weave a gripping conspiracy plot with a serial killer narrative-culminating in a climax that delivers an astonishing surprise.

A Dan Brown type of thriller. The author takes a dozen or so real assassinations (Olof Palme, Swedish Prime Minster) along with speculative assassinations (Pope John Paul I, Princess Diana), failed assassinations (Pope John Paul II) and some imagined ones (Henry Kissinger) and weaves a plot of a European-based international conspiracy. The conspiracy, called Ishmael, is run by a sadomasochistic sect that kidnaps and kills children in their rituals. This has been a long-running conspiracy, so the plot alternately follows two Milan police inspectors, one in the 1960's and one in the early 2000's. (The book is translated from the Italian, so we get a lot of local color from the underbelly of Europe, mostly in Milan, but also in Paris, Brussels and Berlin.) When I first read a blurb about the parallel chronology, I thought this plot will be complicated to follow, but it wasn't. The book is well done and you can keep the plot straight with chapter headings that identify the protagonist, the location and the date. Both detectives are stereotypes and there's some strange sex, but it's a good read and it keeps your attention.

I just finished this novel a few days ago. Like Robert Wilson's A Small Death in Lisbon I can not recommend it. That is not to say that the unraveling of the mystery's solution is not without merit nor are the main detective characters totally without elements of empathy. A prospective reader should be forwarned that certain plot elements are sordid in nature and especially in the Genna book either unclear as to the detail as to why or even if they are necessary for the plot development.And I consider myself pretty openminded-generally enjoying European literature. If it had not been in my nature to complete what I have started and my sense of fairness which compelled me to complete the novel I might have thrown it in the trash bin after the first 100 pages-that and the really Genna's interesting weaving of the police investigation. As I usually pass on my books to others,I have a problem doing that with this particular novel. Hopefully the second novel will be a bit more palatable than this one was.

I thought this was one of the best fiction books I have read (actually I listened to it). I get the feeling that the reviewers who didn't like it, just didn't like the anti-US-ishness of the author's point of view and then took it out on the book. I write to add that the translation of the book is excellant!!! The descriptions are interesting and are not lost in the translation. I do think this book is probably better listened to, rather than read -- and the reader is one of the best.

One of the reviewers here mentioned that they thought those who did not like this book were of this opinion because they did not like the anti-USA sentiment. This is not in my opinion the case. This is just a bad book alltogether. I would have been happy if this were well written and gave a sinister slight to US policies (which it sort of does). But it is extreemly poorly written.

Where to start... Perhaps the nastiest aspect of this writing style that Genna undertakes is that of jumping from the 1960's to present day from one chapter to the next. The timeline gets jumbled and confusing. Both threads unfold in 'real-time' and are hard to distinguish from one another. Genna brings in Kissinger as a central character early on and spends pages going into great detail over his bowel movements as an old man. I mean, come on. Kissinger today is an unthought of footnote and Genna really fixates on the guy. Why?

The whole novel unfolds like Genna were trying to uncover both a Scientology conspiracy, a US conspiracy, and a dark Bin Laden conspiracy all at once. Only these threads are jumbled together and you are constantly left scratching your head. The two main protagonists are somewhat interesting, but the situations they find themselves in become stretched to the point of breaking.

This is all in all one of the most uncomprehensible and poorly edited books I have ever come across. It is very complex, yet never coalesces into something concrete. Its over whelming in scope, yet dull in its writing style. A total disaster. Maybe it was good in Italian, but the translation was half hearted, who knows. Just stay away from 'In the Name of Ishmael'.

On the strength of the negative reviews, I bought this book immediately with one-click option. Can't wait to read it. Any author justly trashing US policy in Italy in the four decades after WW II is in touch with reality. My apologies to Signor Genna for the idiocy and ignorance of my compatriots. They can't help it. Most are severely historically challenged: it's hard to see the US role in the world from the center. Consequently, they live with benign fables about themselves.

I had no idea who this author was, but the book sounded intriguing. I was unable to put it down to eat or sleep.....I want more books like this from this author. I enjoy the European view of the U.S..... Americans need to know how we are viewed by the rest of the world. I did not find the book hard to follow after getting into it about 1/4 of the way. Unusual and exceptional writing. Wish I had written it....it is one I will re-read. Too many books written today are formulaic and easy to figure out early in the book. Never a dull moment with this book. One of the two best books I read last year, the other being The DaVinci Code.

Excuse me for such a madness: i'm the author of the novel and would like to write something about the upper comment (well, i know Amazon isn't a blog, but let a european reader thati it also could be). i do not know what's up in Cleveland on 03.9.3 but it could be useful be honest as author and tell that a european view upon US is clearly not a US view upon US. i do not know what about the quality of the book, but it seem to me a possible experience to get just one lil' star from a reader: hell!, it's right an american reader could not appreciate something from Europe. Me too, european reader, sometimes dislike what's written in US: for example, Mr. Bush spells. Thank You and forgive me my roughest english mistakes!
Convoluted and over the top. Hard to follow plot and stock-type or unidentifiable characters. Good title, bad book.
