Naples, 1931. Together with his indefatigable partner Brigadier Maione, Commissario Ricciardi, a man driven into solitude by his paranormal “gift” of seeing the final seconds in the lives of victims of violent deaths—a talent that also makes him a highly effective investigator—is conducting an investigation into the death of the beautiful and mysterious Duchess of Camparino. The duchess’ connections to Neapolitan privileged social circles and the local fascist elite make the case a powder keg waiting to blow.

“A wonderfully suspenseful novel in which de Giovanni restores life to the cliché of the world-weary detective.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on The Crocodile
