The Bastards of Pizzofalcone Series
In the fifth installment in Maurizio de Giovanni's bestselling series, the Bastards of Pizzofalcone face their hardest challenge yet: will they emerge stronger or will they succumb to Naples's darkest forces?
Sometimes it takes facing a formidable adversary to truly know one's worth. The Bastards of Pizzofalcone may have found just that: when the brutal murder of a baker rattles the city, they are ready to investigate. There's nothing they wouldn't do to prove themselves to their community. But this time the police are divided: for the special anti-mob branch, the local mafia is doubtlessly responsible for the crime, but the Bastards are not so sure.
