When a beautiful college student is found murdered in the catacombs beneath a monastery, Captain Natalia Monte of the Carabinieri is assigned to investigate. Could the killer be a professor the student had been sleeping with? A blind monk who loved her? Or perhaps a member of the brutal Napali criminal organization, the Camorra? As Natalia pursues her investigation, the crime families of Naples go to war over garbage-hauling contracts; and all across the city heaps of trash pile up, uncollected. When one of Natalia’s childhood friends is caught up in the violence, her loyalties are tested, and each move she makes threatens her own life and the lives of those she loves.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Where better to set a noir police procedural than in streets awash in uncollected trash, against a backdrop of smoke rising from Vesuvius? Donna Leon owns Venice, and David Hewson rules Rome. With this formidable debut novel, Weiss lays claim to Naples.” Boston Globe
“Weiss invests her debut with a plot replete with shocks, her characters—even the minor ones—are drawn with care and come alive as complete beings on the page, and her vivid portrayal of Naples, in its glory and its gloom, is unforgettable…marks the beginning of what promises to be a bright series.” Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Absorbing fiction debut…Weiss renders [Naples’] bustling trattorias and colorful neighborhoods with flair.” Publishers Weekly
“Taxes the brain and gives us pause for the future of society…intense and violent read…For all readers who love a complex story fraught with tough decisions about friendship, family loyalties, and justice.” Library Journal
These Dark Things heralds the arrival of a most promising series. Recommend it, in particular, to fans of Michael Genelin’s Jana Matinova series.” Booklist
