Praise for The Apothecary's Shop

"Nobody writes about Venice like Roberto Tiraboschi in The Apothecary's Shop."

"[A]n extremely elegant intrigue, with cosmopolitan influences that reflect the character of the city, several unlikely plot twists, and the panache to put just enough confidence in the mind of the reader to keep the pages turning quickly."--Lauren Cerand in the Seattle Review of Books

"The pieces of this mystery allow Tiraboschi to pull us into a distant world, a medieval Venice that we are not used to imagining and that has rarely been written about."
--La Repubblica

"An extraordinary book, a gripping trip back through time to discover a different but still unique Venice and its political intrigues and mysteries, where the scents of spices and opium, drugs and poisons, love and suffering, and East and West are just some of the ingredients of a story that is impossible to forget."
--Art as a Part of Culture

Praise for Roberto Tiraboschi's The Eye Stone

"This exceptional vision of a city in the throes of metamorphosis will persist in the reader's mind long after the murder mystery is resolved...A noir situated in beautifully evoked 12-century Venice."
--Shelf Awareness

"Roberto Tiraboschi knows how to recount a city and an era that are both poisoned by intrigue and violence. His writing is powerful and evocative."
--Venerdì di Repubblica
