I had just about given up on this series - the plots and characters are generally interesting, but Tremayne has a repetitively pedantic style that gets a bit hard to take.

But this latest is an improvement. Maybe because it is set in northern Italy, slightly outside the center of Tremayne’s obsessions, you are allowed to enjoy the story without quite so many teaching moments.

This is also the only novel in the series that is out of sequence, so you get a refreshing view of the main character, Fidelma, without the accretion of history and personality quirks that have plagued the recent books in the series.
