David Hewson is the author of the highly acclaimed Nic Costa detective series, set in Rome. In this exclusive short story, Hewson focuses on one of Nic Costa's colleagues, Gianni Peroni. Gianni Peroni is at a loose end – his friends and colleagues are all out of the office for a variety of different reasons. He's got nothing urgent to do but he notices that the pathologist has a busy day ahead: during the night two corpses were picked out of the Tiber. At first glance, it seems that the similarities between the two men end there. The bodies were found in different parts of the river, and it is clear once they have been identified that they come from very different walks of life. One is a wealthy psychiatrist, the other a young Roma boy with a police record for petty theft. But upon closer examination, Peroni notices something rather extraordinary. The men are both wearing exactly the same odd socks . .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from "Dead Men's Sock's" Briefs Short stories are often irritating in their simplicity. Characters are black or white, good or bad, simple or bright, and so on. There is insufficient time and space to develop much character. Hewson's story has these problems but is still entertaining enough to be a fair read. Old fashioned writing with the clues out there. Embarassing when you miss them.
