Il metodo del coccodrillo (2012)
3.73 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I'm a fan of the European mysteries/crime novels. They are a nice change of pace from so much of the American stuff -- the authors aren't compelled to make the protagonist a super detective -- they are ordinary people with regular flaws and problems doing their best to get throu...
I Will Have Vengeance (2007)

review 1: First book I have read by this author. Definitely a good start. I enjoy the setting in in interwar Italy and the opera discussions. Look forward to reading the next in the series. A little bit of the supernatural but again like the Laotian doctor detective Siri, it wasn't so ...

review 1: Second in the Commissario Ricciardi series. Good plot with several strands running at one time and good writing. However, it is the characters that bring me back to this series. de Giovanni develops characters slowly, offering brief, tantalizing clues into who they are. Often...
Il senso del dolore: L'inverno del commissario Ricciardi (2007)

review 1: Amazing. The first in the Commissario Ricciardi series set in 1930s Naples. Homicide detective Ricciardi has visions--he sees the final seconds in the lives of victims of violent deaths. The writing sings in these clever, character-driven novels. No wonder this (as of now) fo...
