Exciting new series- If you like mystery suspense - or you like Rome - you will like this book. The author does a great job at creating interesting characters - both intriguing and funny. One of my favorites is Dante's boss Gennaro. His background is very moving - but he has a great sense of humor as well. And you get a interesting look at Italian bureaucracy at Dante and Gennaro's workplace. One of my favorite things about the book is how Rome is really a character as well. You can feel what it's like being there, and also eating there! (there are some amazing food descriptions!). The volunteer groups who patrol and take care of the underground in Rome are actually real - I found it fascinating to think of all the centuries of history down there - and how much is still unmapped or undiscovered.
The book also includes the first chapters of the follow-up to this book at the end - and based on those I am really looking forward to the sequel!
