The fourth installment in the Rocco Schiavone mystery series from the international bestselling author, Antonio Manzini picks up three days after his last novel, Out of Season, left off, as Rocco seeks revenge for a friend—and closure for himself. Rocco is still reeling from the death of his best friend’s girlfriend, who was murdered as she slept in his bed. There’s no doubt that she was in the wrong place at the wrong time and paid the ultimate price. With the identity of the hitman still unknown, a cloud lingers over Rocco, dulling his judgment and leaving this anti-hero exposed to other threats. For Rocco has stepped on one too many people’s toes over the years, namely the mafia that is still being rooted out in Aosta. To complicate matters, the kidnapped teenager that Rocco saved has not fully recovered. But all is not as it appears with that family. Her mother, father, and boyfriend are all running some sort of farce that Rocco can’t easily crack. And now he must grapple between these two parallel investigations and find answers once and for all…before one too many skeletons come after him. With the same clever insights, vitality, and humor readers have come to expect from Manzini, Spring Cleaning is another engaging mystery.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Manzini is also a screenwriter, and his prowess with dialogue shines…Those who relish smart-aleck dialogue, gallows humor, and a protagonist with a prickly personality will have fun.” Publishers Weekly
“Fans of the first three books in the series should have no trouble keeping track of the large cast of cops and criminals with whom Rocco interacts. Those new to the series will embrace the lone-wolf detective as their guide and learn to trust his instincts as he deftly moves from trail to trail, in search of a killer with some unfinished business.” Booklist
“Rocco’s fourth case offers a procedural panorama with an abundance of subplots, characters, and lively dialogue.” Kirkus Reviews
