Editorial Reviews

Praise for Cold for the Bastards of Pizzofalcone The personal stories of the many well-drawn characters, who offer touching vignettes of life in the messy, exuberant city, provide counterpoint to the crime solving. Armchair travelers will be satisfied."- Publishers Weekly Praise for Maurizio de Giovanni'sCommissario Ricciardi series"Naples in the early 1930s is the setting for Maurizio de Giovanni's Nameless Serenade (World Noir, 397 pages, $18), a series book (translated impressively from the Italian by Antony Shugaar) whose intense opening chapters approach the operatic. [... ] These romantic, suspenseful and political strains interweave and resolve in superbly artful fashion." -Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal "Love, longing, and loss suffuse [Glass Souls], de Giovanni's elegiac, autumnal eighth Commissario Ricciardi mystery." - Publishers Weekly "This is a wonderful series, and I highly recommend it to mystery lovers, as well as historical noir." - Pulp Den "Reading a novel by Maurizio de Giovanni is like stepping into a Vittorio De Sica movie." - The New York Times "De Giovanni has created one of the most interesting and well-drawn detectives in fiction." - The Daily Beast "
