This articles explores the relationship of literary invention and factual reality, fiction and history, considering how the two have been employed by Giancarlo De Cataldo (b. 1956) in his novel “Romanzo criminale” (2002) in order to create a more reliable explanation of events than the official one. In fact, as De Cataldo maintains, contrary to a notion of crime fiction as escapist, the Italian crime novel is regarded as the perfect means to challenge the complexities of reality.
