Not a bad book - I give it a 3 - just not a very good one either.
Filled with unforgettable characters, the story travels with the reader through the canals of Venice and the beauty of the city.
The setting and era are irresistable, but the story is both murky and weak, and there was little movement for the characters.
Interesting plot with intricate details that keep the suspense throughout. Another good novel from Joseph Kanon. I highly recommend it.Published 1 month ago by Patrick Hurley

I read this book twice. About fifty pages in, I realized I had read it. Kept going because I forgot how it ended. Just as good the second time!Published 2 months ago by Frances A. Slemrod
