    CHARACTERS Õ The Namesake The NamesakeThis is third in the rather wonderful Alec Blume series and I really enjoyed it Blume improbably is an American orphaned in Italy who manages to become Italian enough to rise to senior rank in the Italian police His almost complete disrespect for the rules begs the uestion of why he wasn't fired years before he achieve the exalted rank of Commisario but now that he's there we can just sit back and enjoy the ride This time out he becomes involved with the Ndrangheta the secretive and widespread criminal orga
