Not too bad. I'm finding the Zen stories a little far-fetched and the characterisation somewhat lacking. Dibdin tends to go off on discursive tangents and is often verbose about things that don't advance the plot. On the other hand, he really hasn't achieved a fully formed character in Aurelio Zen. I prefer Donna Leon's Venetian detective, Brunetti, or the Sicilian Inspector Montalbano.
