Naples, 1931. Together with his indefatigable partner Brigadier Maione, Commissario Ricciardi, a man driven into solitude by his paranormal "gift" of seeing the final seconds in the lives of victims of violent deaths-a talent that also makes him a highly effective investigator-is conducting an investigation into the death of the beautiful and mysterious Duchess of Camparino. The duchess' connections to Neapolitan privileged social circles and the local Fascist elite make the case a powder keg waiting to blow.

"This is the third title featuring Italian detective Ricciardi, whose talents include paranormal insights into the final moments of murder victims. The series, set in Naples in the early 1930s, will resonate with those who love complicated thrillers. Grover Gardner's narration is easy on the ear. His voice takes listeners through the winding streets of the Italian city and the many turns in this plot. He sets a steady pace, retelling the details of gruesome crimes in a matter-of-fact tone that allows listeners to focus on the story rather than the violence. Gardner's performance is reminiscent of the voices used in radio shows of this era. M.R. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
