Crocodile

«This novel is a perfect killing machine of flesh, bone, blood and cartilage. The story of the Crocodile will make you tremble to your very soul»

Donato Carrisi, internationally bestselling author of The Whisperer

Transferred to Naples after a tangle with the Sicilian Mafia, Detective Inspector Giuseppe Lojacono feels that he's marking time, waiting out an awkward scandal.

But when the bloodied bodies of teenagers start appearing around the city, victims of a strange and sinister killer whom police and locals take to calling The Crocodile, it soon becomes clear to Lojacono that the killings are more than simple Mafia hits, and that the labyrinthine streets of Naples are more deadly than he'd dared imagine.

Can he catch the assassin in time to save the city's innocents?

A bestseller in Italy, The Crocodile is a dark, bloody story of murder and revenge that will grip and thrill you.
