Review: Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning
Antonio Manzini

Spring Cleaning picks up where Manzini's previous book Out of Season ends. Rocco Schiavone, Deputy Chief of Police in Aosta, Italy is looking for the person who broke into his apartment and killed his friend Adele. Adele, the girlfriend of Rocco's best friend, had been visiting and was most likely not the target. That would have been Rocco, who is now intent on finding the killer.

Before he can devote himself to finding the hit man he is confronted with another murder. This time the male victim is a prisoner which means Rocco will have to spend some time behind bars trying to find out what happened. As he investigates, it slowly becomes clear that the prison death may lead back to a previous case Rocco worked on.

Manzini has created another mystery, where Schiavone is at once haunted by the ghost of his dead wife, struggling to come to grips with life in a city other than his beloved Rome and trying to find justice for his friend, Adele. Having read all four of Manzini's books so far, I'm hoping this will not be the last because I would love to read more.

Thanks to Library Thing for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
