Cold for the Bastards of Pizzofalcone
Publisher: World Noir
Naples detectives face a coldblooded killer amid the chill of winter in the third book of the Italian author’s acclaimed mystery thriller series. A heinous double murder in a squalid apartment on the wrong side of town pits the motley collection of cops known as the “bastards” of the Pizzofalcone precinct against their superiors, the press, and the local political hierarchy. Now Inspector Lojacono and Officer Di Nardo must work against the brutal headwinds and bring the killer to justice if there’s to be any hope of saving their reputations. As with his acclaimed historical mystery series featuring Commissario Ricciardi De Giovanni, Maurizio de Giovanni once again brings the dark side of Naples to light with the Bastards of Pizzofalcone. One of the most popular and prolific mystery authors in Europe, his award-winning novels offer a brilliant vision of the criminal underworld and the lives of the cops in Italy's most atmospheric, dangerous, and lustful city.
