La segunda aventura del gran comisario Ricciardi. Una serie policíaca distinta. Si pudiera decirlo, lo diría así: me llamo Luigi Alfredo Ricciardi, y veo a los muertos... Así se presentó a sus lectores el comisario Ricciardi en la primera entrega de la serie, y aquí lo tenemos de nuevo, ensimismado y algo melancólico, en abril de 1931, cuando Mussolini vive sus mejores momentos y en la ciudad de Nápoles el viento remueve el ánimo de los ciudadanos. Meditabundo, Ricciardi camina sin sombrero por las callejuelas de la ciudad, esta vez buscando al culpable de la muerte de Carmela Calise, una anciana que vive en un piso miserable y se gana el sustento como vidente. Un buen día la encuentra muerta, desfigurada por una paliza que parece instigada por el odio, y la investigación empieza. Quien ayuda al comisario en su trabajo es Maione, un policía ejemplar, que ahora vive en carne propia las penas del corazón y el dolor de la renuncia. Como siempre en las aventuras de nuestro comisario, el amor y el habre son el origen de todo mal, y algo de ese amor encontraremos incluso en la mirada reservada de Ricciardi, que por la noche espía por la ventana los quehaceres de una señorita de buena familia... La vida oscura de Nápoles en los momentos álgidos del fascismo necesitaba a un napolitano con mucho talento que contara sus historias, y aquí está Maurizio de Giovanni, un hombre que conoce los secretos de su ciudad y de la buena escritura.

This is Naples as you’ve never seen it before. A chaotic, shadowy city full of ominous echoes and dark alleyways where each inhabitant seems too absorbed by his or her own problems to give a damn about anybody else. And that is exactly what makes it possible for a cold, methodical killer to commit his atrocious crimes largely undisturbed, to merge with the crowd as if he were invisible. The newspapers call him “The Crocodile” because, like a crocodile, when he devours his own children, he cries. And like a crocodile he is a perfect killing machine: he waits and watches until his prey is within range, and then he strikes. Three young people with very diverse backgrounds have been found murdered in three different neighborhoods, each shot with a single bullet, execution style. While his colleagues see little or no connection, Inspector Giuseppe Lojacono, smells a rat. He is driven by his instincts and his own troubled recent history. He has just been transferred to Naples from Sicily where a Mafioso-turned-informant accused him of leaking sensitive information to the mob. Once an estimated member of the mobile unit of the Agrigento police force, Lojacono has lost everything, first and foremost the love of his wife and daughter. But now he’s been given a second chance and a shot at clearing his name. A young magistrate, the beautiful Laura Piras, wants him in Naples. She’s heard of his preternatural skills and his incredible powers of observation and she thinks a man like him is needed in Naples. So it is that Inspector Lojacono is charged with finding the link between the three dead bodies. At the root of these murders, he will discover, is a pain that still burns, a sense of guilt than cannot be purged, and one all-consuming love.

El primer caso del comisario Ricciardi, el responsable de la brigada contra el crimen que actúa en Nápoles en 1931. Si pudiera decirlo, lo diría así: me llamo Luigi Alfredo Ricciardi, y veo a los muertos... Estamos en Nápoles y corre el año 1931, una época en que el fascismo en Italia goza de sus momentos de gloria. Es invierno, y la ciudad parece adormilada por el frío, pero el comisario Ricciardi no para de trabajar. Hombre de pocas palabras, solitario y terco, ha heredado de su madre un extraño poder: ve el último gesto de las víctimas de muerte violenta y escucha sus últimas palabras. Ese don le permite meterse de lleno en las investigaciones, pero le obliga a compartir parte del dolor de quien ha muerto. De ahí sus silencios y su mirada a veces extraviada. En este primer caso vemos a Ricciardi en los camerinos del Teatro San Carlo de Nápoles. Ahí el gran tenor ArnaldoVezzi, artista admirado por su talento y amigo personal de Mussolini, ha sido brutalmente asesinado justo antes de subir al escenario para cantar I Pagliacci. Poco a poco iremos descubriendo el verdadero carácter de Vezzi y veremos cumplirse una vez más la ley de Ricciardi: las víctimas de un crimen, vengan de donde vengan, hagan lo que hagan, sean pobres o ricas, acaban muriendo por hambre o por amor. Con este relato se inicia la larga serie de novelas dedicadas al comisario Ricciardi, unos libros donde la intriga es importante, pero cuenta también y sobre todo ir disfrutando de la buena literatura y de la vida de Nápoles en la época del fascismo, un tiempo que parece repetirse hoy sin descanso y con mucho descaro.

The eighth entry in Maurizio de Giovanni's internationally bestselling Commissario Ricciardi series. In the abyss of a profound personal crisis, Commissario Ricciardi feels unable to open himself up to life. He has refused the love of both Enrica and Livia and the friendship of his partner, Maione. Contentment for Ricciardi proves as elusive as clues to the latest crime he has been asked to investigate. The beautiful, haughty Bianca, countess of Roccaspina, pleads with Ricciardi to investigate a homicide that was officially closed months ago. In the tense, charged atmosphere of 1930s Italy, where Benito Mussolini and his fascist thugs monitor the police closely, an unauthorized investigation is grounds for immediate dismissal and possible criminal charges. But Ricciardi's thirst for justice cannot be sated. A tightly plotted historical noir novel, this eighth installment in the Commissario Ricciardi series is a gripping meditation on revenge and justice in which each character's soul reveals itself to be made of glass. "The construction of Glass Souls is remarkable. It's like a very sophisticated mosaic in which each protagonist occupies precisely the right amount of space. The powerful rhythm with which the plot develops will surprise readers at every turn." —La Reppublica

In the middle of a summer heat wave, as Naples prepares for one of its most important holy days, a renowned surgeon falls to his death from the window of his office. For Commissario Ricciardi and Brigadier Maione it is the beginning of an investigation that will bring them into contact with the most torrid, conflicting and enduring of human passions. In the world Ricciardi and Maione are about to enter, infidelity appears inextricable from the most joyful expressions of love, and, this interdependence sows doubt and uncertainty in both men, compromising their own attempts at love. Ricciardi is one of the most intriguing and unique figures to appear in crime fiction in recent years. He possesses the dubious gift of being able to see and hear the last seconds in the lives of those who have suffered a violent death. This ability makes him an unusually effective investigator but plagues him and renders human relationships almost impossible. He is a classic noir hero and the cursed son of a city that, for all its Mediterranean splendor, is a perfect noir city. In this new installment in the Commissario Ricciardi series, Maurizio de Giovanni creates a large cast of unforgettable characters and a compelling, suspenseful plot that demonstrates once more why he is considered one of the best crime writers working today.

It has helped him become one of the most acute and successful homicide detectives in the Naples police force. But all that horror and suffering has hollowed him out emotionally. He drinks and doesn’t sleep. Other than his loyal partner Brigadier Maione he has no friends. Naples, 1931. In a working class apartment in the Sanita’ neighborhood an elderly woman by the name of Carmela Calise has been beaten to death. When Ricciardi and Maione arrive at the scene they start asking the neighbors questions. No one wants to talk but slowly a few interesting facts slip out. Carmela Calise was moonlighting as a fortuneteller and moneylender. In her decrepit apartment she would receive clients, among them some of the city’s rich and powerful, predicting their futures in such a way as to manipulate and deceive. If economic ruin lurked in their futures, Calise was happy to help. For a price, of course. She had many enemies, those indebted to her, manipulated by her lies, disappointed by her prophesies or destroyed by her machinations. Murder suspects in this atmospheric thriller abound and Commissario Ricciardi, one of the most original and intriguing investigators in contemporary crime fiction, will have his work cut out for him.
