liked it
bookshelves: nonfic, mystery-or-detective
Read from February 19 to 23, 2015

main thoughts left after reading:

1. never get even semi involved in any italian crimes or possible criminals because the italian police build evidence to fit their conclusions and not the other way around

2. what are "schoolboy ears"?

3. douglas preston really thinks Italian culture influenced every single thing in the world

4. the prose in this is so purple it overshadows what a weird gobsmacking story it is. the prose oversells itself.
