Lou Manfredo’s RIZZO’S FIRE

RIZZO’S FIRE is another superb policed procedural and while it doesn’t carry the same wallop that the first book did I still thoroughly enjoyed it. They way cases are actually built and investigated (as opposed to what we see on TV) is brilliantly done and although the driving case of this book is a murder mystery it is not handled in the typical way. Rizzo must juggle the politics of the NYPD and solve the case in a way that helps him with his other problems and I loved the fact that there was a literary twist to the crime.

I can’t wait to see where Lou Manfredo takes the series from here because he has left it delicately poised with a fork in the road to choose from.
