--La Reppublica

"Though Ricciardi risks infuriating his bosses--and unknowingly even greater danger from the Fascist forces who have him under surveillance--he can't resist the conundrum. Nor in all likelihood will readers."
--Publishers Weekly

"This is a wonderful series, and I highly recommend it to mystery lovers, as well as historical noir."
--The Pulp Den

"The details of everyday life in pre-war Italy are fascinating. I was drawn into the characters, the methods used to investigate the possible unsolved crime, and the moody protagonist. This is a worthwhile read and difficult to put down."
--The Historical Novels Review

"A must read for those interested in exploring International Noir."
--Mystery Tribune
