The arrival of Benjamin and Ester Catalan with their Gutenberg press causes a shift in both Florentine bookmaking and politics. Befriended by the powerful Medici family, they quickly discover that this is not the only alliance they need to make to survive. I found the parts about their Jewish heritage and religious practices nicely balanced the murder plot. Knowing the outcome, I found my attraction to the characters quite poignant. Even so, the pacing kept me wanting to see how things would turn out.
Mr. Weinstein has done his homework and he pulls in all of the real people who were involved in the plot, bringing them alive for the reader. I was especially pleased with the final section of the book that explains the liberties he took with their stories as well as the basis for his fictional characters.
If you're interested in Italian Renaissance history, or a good murder plot, this is well worth reading. Bravo!(less)
Apart from inserting a fictional family, the historical references are accurate and illuminating. Language reads easily but allows seeming visualization of the scene and times. Can't wait for the third in the series.
It will be very apparent that the research is thorough.
What makes this history such a pleasure to learn is the writing. Weinstein's ability to spin a tale that endears the good guys, makes you loathe the bad guys, and leaves you gripped by the tension between them, is extraordinary.
