it was amazing
bookshelves: crime-and-mystery, novel
Read in January, 1989

The first Aurelio Zen novel as far as I am aware. A wonderful read that really does evoke Italy in some beautifully turned prose. Dibdin's plots are always carefully put together, and you are kept guessing a lot in this book. What a ratking actually is, is a wonderful metaphor for what happens in this book. This, and Cosi Fan Tutti are the best of this series.

Silvio111 Cosi Fan Tutti is an anomaly in Dibdin's series. It is the only truly comic novel of the bunch. The rest are very dark, but no less brilliant.
