    Set in Naples, with an appealing cast of characters, this police procedural was too monotonously procedural to me Too much repetition of investigative technique, too much melodrama in the backstories, and too much exposition in the dialogue And when the killer is finally revealed, I didn t believe the motive for one second Still, I liked the dog.

    First Sentence As the dawn was beginning to extract the outlines of things from the night and the rain, if someone had happened to pass by the foot of the monumental staircase leading up to Capodimonte, they d have seen a dog and a child When the body of a young boy is found, it is assumed he is another tragic victim or poverty and hunger Commissario Riccardi believes differently, but even he is confused as his usual gift is not providing the usual indication of it being a violent death Wi First Sentence As the dawn was beginning to extract the outlines of things from the night and the rain, if someone had happened to pass by the foot of the monumental staircase leading up to Capodimonte, they d have seen a dog and a child When the body of a young boy is found, it is assumed he is another tragic victim or poverty and hunger Commissario Riccardi believes differently, but even he is confused as his usual gift is not providing the usual indication of it being a violent death With the impending visit of Mussolini, his superiors want there to be no investigations of serious crimes on the books, so Riccardi decides to go on his own and find the answers during this week of the dead celebration Commissario Riccardi is one of those rare characters who stays with you long after you finish the book Not because of his gift curse, but because one can t imagine what it would be like living with it But also because of the supporting characters Brigadier Maione, his second who doesn t always understand him but always supports him Dr Bruno Modo, the pathologist and the one person who brings humor to the taciturn Riccardi Rosa, Riccardi s childhood nanny who has stayed with him and cared for him how into adulthood, and who worries about who will care for him when she is gone and the two women around him one who is wealthy is believes she loves him, one who is poor, lives across the alley and does love him, and even Maione s informant, Bambinella It is the balance of solving the crime, set off by Riccardi s personal life and internal struggles, and the politics of the day that makes this series so memorable de Giovanni has such a wonderful use of language which portrays the city to us, good and bad the Sanit neighborhood, bubbling over with life and grief, cheerful energy and poverty We learn of Naples in the 1920s, and of an old tradition related to Jordan almonds after the passing of a child He also makes us painfully aware on the capacity of humans for cruelty Ricciardi shivered He was increasingly finding the dead less frightening than the living Through Maione, de Giovanni also brings insight to the readers, Children living on the street were somebody s children in fact, they were everybody s children The wonderful exchange of letters between Riccardi and Enrica, the woman across the alley, adds such a sweet touch to a sad, dark story The author s perspectives and descriptions are evocative to the point where one finds oneself re reading passages for the pure pleasure of it Although the translation is rough at time, particularly related to the dialogue, it also makes you very aware that you are in a different time and place This story is the most serious of the series so far, and that it s approach is different from those previous, only demonstrates the awareness of the author The Day of the Dead has a twist that is completely unexpected The ending is sad, happy and leaves you immediately wanting to read the next book, but do read them in sequence.THE DAY OF THE DEAD The Autumn of Commissario Ricciardi Hist Mys Comm Guido Riccardi Naples 1921 de Giovanni, Maurizio ExEuropa Editions Mar 2014

    As you might expect with a title like The Day of the Dead, the fourth book in the Comissario Ricciardi series issomber and less playful than the previous three A little boy, one of the scugnizzi or street urchins of Naples, has been found dead at the foot of the steps to Capodimonte He appears to have died peacefully, sitting up, with his loyal dog in attendance If Ricciardi had not intervened, no one would have bothered doing an autopsy But something doesn t seem right to Ricciardi As you might expect with a title like The Day of the Dead, the fourth book in the Comissario Ricciardi series issomber and less playful than the previous three A little boy, one of the scugnizzi or street urchins of Naples, has been found dead at the foot of the steps to Capodimonte He appears to have died peacefully, sitting up, with his loyal dog in attendance If Ricciardi had not intervened, no one would have bothered doing an autopsy But something doesn t seem right to Ricciardi and he always trusts his instincts Even Brigadier Maione, ever sympathetic, calls the little boy, just another orphan But Ricciardi prevails and an autopsy reveals that the boy, Matteo, has died from eating rat poison This would not have resulted in a peaceful death, something resembling dying in your sleep No, strychnine causes convulsions and frothing at the mouth Ricciardi realizes that Matteo suffered a violent death, perhaps by accident, and he didn t die at the scene where he was found Ricciardi would have seen Matteo s ghost there and heard his final thoughts Someone moved Matteo s body Why And from where Set in late October, near the Feast of All Saints, this book has many of the characters found de Giovanni s early books in the series, but there are few humorous touches And the two young women in Ricciardi s life, Livia and Enrica, seem shallow and stereotypical this time out It rains nearly every day and everyone is tired of the cloudy skies, chilly temperatures, and wet and muddy streets Ricciardi refuses to carry an umbrella or wear a coat and he s soon sick, running a fever and trying to solve the mystery of Matteo s death while officially on vacation But it s Matteo himself who brings this book to a new level of sadness He s an orphan, abandoned to a mercenary priest, living with five other orphans who are supposedly under the care of the Catholic Church, but in reality completely on their own The other boys, with one exception, Cristiano, are brutal and vicious they kill cats and threaten to kill Matteo s dog and him Cristiano is sympathetic to Matteo but cowardly he doesn t want the other boys to turn their attention to him They are jealous of Matteo, who is the favorite of a wealthy young woman named Carmen who teaches the boys twice a week Afflicted with a horrible stutter, Matteo can barely communicate verbally However, despite the desperation of his situation, he remains hopeful that his Angel Carmen will adopt him I found it difficult to read this book Matteo s treatment by everyone in his life is so despicable that I could hardly continue The end of the book is surprising and violent, very different from the other three books in the series There are a number of red herrings in the book, but when the mystery is finally solved, it sshocking that I could have imagined Nonetheless, it s beautifully written and emotionally powerful I just couldn t say that I enjoyed it as much as the other books in the series The Enlgish translation Book 5 in the Comissario Ricciardi series comes out in August and I can t wait to see what happens next

    The autumn of 1931 in Naples days are getting shorter, rainier and colder The city is observing the mournful rites of All Saints Day and preparing for a visit from Il Duce The local Fascist troops have been augmented by security forces from Rome and tensions are rising Ricciardi and Maione are called out to the scene of a suspicious death a pitifully thin orphan boy watched over by his small dog, no visible wounds Modo discovers the cause of death to be the ingestion of strychnine laced The autumn of 1931 in Naples days are getting shorter, rainier and colder The city is observing the mournful rites of All Saints Day and preparing for a visit from Il Duce The local Fascist troops have been augmented by security forces from Rome and tensions are rising Ricciardi and Maione are called out to the scene of a suspicious death a pitifully thin orphan boy watched over by his small dog, no visible wounds Modo discovers the cause of death to be the ingestion of strychnine laced rat bait and is willing to call it an accident But Ricciardi needs to knowthe fact that he cannot see the child s last moments suggests that the body was moved after death, so he begins to investigate the life of the boy and it proves to be one tragedy after another He is one of a small group of orphans in the care of a venal priest with friends in high places He is the smallest and the victim of constant bullying The priest is offended at being questioned and complains to the bishop who complains to Garza Ever the political animal, Garza warns Ricciardi off investigating further There are to be NO unsolved cases for the Duce s visit, and the orphan didn t matter anyway.Ricciardi s personal life is becoming complicated He and Enrica, his shy, lovely neighbor have taken their first tentative steps at becoming acquainted, and Livia the wealthy beautiful widow is pursuing him hotly She is about to host a party in honor if the Duce s daughter, an old friend of hers so she and Ricciardi are being vetted by Fascist secret police and fawned over by Garza.The boy s life is a tragic tale, vividly described The characters continue to grow in depth and complexity The descriptive writing is beautiful, the setting and the atmosphere unforgettable Chapter 49 begins with three pages about rainy Sundays that is so wonderful I read it at least three times.I really hate having to wait four months for the next Ricciardi book

    Commissario Ricciardi, a compulsively private man, is haunted by his the ability to see and hear the dead repeating their final moments He still lives with his Tata Rosa, who has cared for him since he was a baby He feels a romantic attachment to Enrica, a young woman he admires from afar and is too shy to talk to Meanwhile, Livia Vezzi, a beautiful and wealthy widow, has moved to Naples and is pursuing Ricciardi Along with his loyal colleague, Brigidiar Maione, they investigate the murder Commissario Ricciardi, a compulsively private man, is haunted by his the ability to see and hear the dead repeating their final moments He still lives with his Tata Rosa, who has cared for him since he was a baby He feels a romantic attachment to Enrica, a young woman he admires from afar and is too shy to talk to Meanwhile, Livia Vezzi, a beautiful and wealthy widow, has moved to Naples and is pursuing Ricciardi Along with his loyal colleague, Brigidiar Maione, they investigate the murder of a little orphan boy, Matteo, found dead on the steps of the Tondo di Capodimonte staircase, still guarded by his small dog Called Tette because he stutters so badly he can t pronounce his own name, he has found shelter in the back room of a church, along with six bullies who constantly torment him Hungry and alone, his only friend is the small dog Ricciardi knows something is wrong with the boy s apparent death and decides to take some vacation time to investigate This was my very favorite of the four Commissario Ricciardi books I ve read, even though it was breathtakingly sad on so many levels The author intersperses flashbacks that reveal Tette s life, leading up to his death This technique had such a powerful impact because we know from the first pages that Tette is dead I know very little about the rise of fascism and Mussolini in the early 1930s but the author does a fantastic job of giving the reader a feel for the people gripped in political repression and economic depression There is no humor in this book With starving children as a major character, we are filled with overwhelming sadness as we hurtle towards the devastating conclusion I m happy to report that this isn t the final book of the seasonally based Commissario Ricciardi series Next up.Viper, No Resurrection for Commissario Ricciardi, one of the most fascinating characters I ve ever met

    Ricciardi can t let it go, the lonely death of a small boy, a mangy dog standing sentinel Beautifully written with wonderful interior dialogue and sense of place.

  9. Josh Josh says:

    Fantastic culmination of the four season of Commissario Ricciardi The combination of the the seasons of Naples are wonderfully and poetically intertwined the themes of the case of any given season Ricciardi is a fascinating character study The digression on rainy Sundays dropped in the book is De Giovanni at his finest.

  10. David C Ward David C Ward says:

    Quite good again The solution to the actual crime is extraneous to the action which centers on the various corruptions of fascist Italy As before, it s very operatic with characters in broad strokes the romance with Enrica is charming but surely even in 1930s Naples one could ask the other to have an espresso
