A Cold Death: A Rocco Schiavone Mystery - HarperCollins Publishers Limited, Antonio Manzini, Daniel Philpott


I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Very reminiscent of the work of Andrea Camilleri (the author of the Inspector Montalbano books), this second detective novel by Antonio Manzini about Rocco Schiavone, Deputy Police Chief stuck in Aosta in the Italian Alps will please any reader of detective fiction. We delve into the detective's background while he attempts to solve a grisly murder.

It has the three Ns: enjoyable, entertaining and engaging. I found the ending a bit too contrived but otherwise this is well worth a look.
