The Bastards face their hardest challenge yet




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 and think there may be another reason for the murder of the renowned artisan, whose traditionally baked bread attracted customers from far and wide. A rivalry between the policeman and the magistrate is formed, one that, in the end, will extend to more than just their work lives.

Anmeldelser

«“Deliciously entertaining.”»

Barry Forsyth, Financial Times

«“Colorful, fully drawn characters and several intriguing subplots help propel the plot to a satisfying resolution.”»

«“A page-turning thriller – very firmly set in modern day Naples. A city that is corrupt and crime filled but still remarkably lovable.”»

«“A well-paced, intriguing read…”»

«“This is the fifth book in the Bastards series. If you read it, you'll want to read the others. Favourite line: ‘The first time I ate microwaved frozen foods was after I got married.’”»

The Times Crime Club

«“The Bastards of Pizzofalcone series is a most excellent set of contemporary crime novels…Bread revolves around the murder of an artisanal baker which looks, far too conveniently, to be a local Mafia hit, but the ‘bastards of Pizzofalcone’ are not convinced. Anything which interferes with giving a Neapolitan his daily bread has got to be taken seriously.”»
