Reviews

"Entertaining...Readers will look forward to seeing more of this fascinating and complex character." -- Publishers Weekly

"[Schiavone] brings the case to a solution out of Agatha Christie as satisfying as it is unexpected here...Schiavone continues to make a memorable companion in crime." -- Kirkus

"Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. More than once I thought I'd spotted the killer, but I was always wrong." -- Venerdì di Repubblica

"Manzini delivers a wonderful mix of in-depth characterization with an ever-deepening plot. Best of all, perhaps, are his descriptions (his evocation of the sounds an espresso machine makes is just one example) and his characters' wide-ranging comments on Italian life and politics." -- Booklist

"Argumentative, bad-tempered, liable to work around official procedure in order to attain his objectives, Schiavone has a puzzle to unravel and a number of his own personal mysteries to reveal to us." -- Espresso
