it was ok
bookshelves: mystery, fiction, italy
Read from September 19 to 22, 2011

I wanted to like this more than I actually liked it. I loved the idea of an art mystery series, and there was a satisfying amount of "art politics" and history, but the main character, Flavia, lacked "patina." Flavia was poorly described and down-right boring. She is slim and trim and eats more than her male colleagues. So? I have enjoyed other books by this author, Dream of Scipio and Instance of the Fingerpost, so I will probably give the second book of the series a chance...at some point.
