Okay -- I have some minor quibbles and at least a couple that are more than minor but I'm ignoring those -- all of them . Why? First, because everything of Goodman's I'd read previously has delighted me at one or more levels. Second, there are portions of this which sing to me -- of many and various small "obsessions" which I love to encounter in my reading. And -- when reading suspense -- it is impressive to me that she can hold onto the high pitch to the very end as she does. And then there are the sonnets and the supposed missing years of Shakespeare and the Dark Lady of some of his sonnets and any story which entangles itself so believably in a mystery of great writing and writers (and who more than the Bard) is right up my alley. then there is Italy and things Italian as character and background and --- well, it's just all good in my opinion.
