Transferred to Naples after a tangle with the Sicilian Mafia, Detective Inspector Giuseppe Lojacono feels that he's marking time, waiting out an awkward scandal.

But when the bloodied bodies of teenagers start appearing around the city, victims of a strange and sinister killer whom police and locals take to calling The Crocodile, it soon becomes clear to Lojacono that the killings are more than simple Mafia hits, and that the labyrinthine streets of Naples are more deadly than he'd dared imagine.

Can he catch the assassin in time to save the city's innocents?

A bestseller in Italy, The Crocodile is a dark, bloody story of murder and revenge that will grip and thrill you.

Review:

This novel is a perfect killing machine of flesh, bone, blood and cartilage. The story of the Crocodile will make you tremble to your very soul (Donato Carrisi, internationally bestselling author of The Whisperer)

The Naples we are plunged into in de Giovanni's vivid and astringent novel is a phantasmagoric place . . . [The novel is] rich and strange (Barry Forshaw Financial Times)

A wonderfully suspenseful novel in which de Giovanni restores life to the cliche of the world-weary detective ... [and] explores Lojacono's loneliness and vulnerability while simultaneously revealing his brilliance (Kirkus starred review)

Engaging and emotional, The Crocodile is a memorable take on revenge (Sydney Morning Herald)

De Giovanni manages to conjure up the terrifying darkness at the heart of a serial killer in this chilling procedural (Publisher's Weekly)

Intriguing . . . De Giovanni's tale is fast-paced (Julian Fleming Sunday Business Post)

Book Description:

A dark, bloody story of murder and revenge in modern-day Naples from the phenomenal bestselling Italian author Maurizio de Giovanni.
