A fairly good mystery featuring Leonardo da Vinci as one of the crime solvers, but really centers around Dino, a girl masquerading as a boy so she can study with da Vinci and escape an unwanted marriage. That aspect of the book is rather unbelievable, which is why it doesn't get a higher rating from me. The possible romance between her and da Vinci is also worthy of some eye rolling as is his invention of an automaton. The mystery itself is pretty good though.
