Is this book an ingenious crime novel, as they say?

Julia It would be a mistake to label this book a murder mystery. It is a marvelously rich novel with fully rounded, indeed, unforgettable characters, structured around a murder case. The visceral curiosity about “who done it” furnishes the suspense on the surface level. At the some time, however, the reader is constantly delighted by the wit and charm with which the two authors handle the inquiry. Two love stories, one escalating, the other disintegrating, are brought to beginning and end in the wake of the murder, generating their own suspense.

This may well be the most delightful and sophisticated entertainment of this and many seasons. A pair of remarkably acute Italian writers have written a joyful book around a grim happening, and in the process given us the portrait of an Italian city Turin and its society, high, low, and dubious. Here, at long last, is a true novel whose scenes and people have real, continuing life, a novel that one reads with avidity and hates to put down.

I completely agree! Very well put.


Gaetano great book


Martiram Great review Julia, right on the spot. I enjoyed the story, the context, the choice of words, the harmonic structuring of sentences, sequences and characters. It all sounds like a well arranged symphony.
