    " Another great read, though I "figured it out" with about 75 pages to go and it was difficult to sustain my interest in his red-herring theory. I love the addition of Tania, and appreciated Zen's sly calmness under pressure even more than in Ratking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 2/5/2014

    " I love discovering a well written series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/18/2014

    " I picked this up after watching the BBC television series, which I really enjoyed, but it's taken me some time to get around to actually reading it. Zen is a fascinating character - complex and being worn down by the world around him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lavezzij | 1/17/2014

    " Good detective stor with a great character as focus. This was also a nice bit of cultural viewpoint of southern Italy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louis Moresi | 1/11/2014

    " Usual sort of thing but with a crumpled backdrop of Rome and a little more humour / absurdity than the usual detective story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jyothi Menon | 11/18/2013

    " An excellent book. This is the first Inspector Zen story I have read. Gripping and set in Italy. I like the characterisation of Zen, his thoughts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 6/30/2013

    " Enjoyable 2nd Zen novel, I enjoyed better than the the first book. Promising series with excellent character development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Helene | 6/9/2013

    " I like the setting: Italy. I like the prose: clear. There are insights that make me pause: "On a day to day level this had been no more apparent than the movement of a clock's hands. It had taken this crisis to reveal the distance that now separated the two men." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberlee | 5/9/2013

    " I love these Michael Dibdin books - the writing can be a little stiff, but every book in his series is like a cultural guide to a separate part of Italy. Esp love all the crazy, byzantine Italian conspiracy angles, like the tie-in w/ la Brigada Rossa. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebes | 3/19/2013

    " LOVED IT! It just took me a little to get into it, but a great mystery read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 3/5/2013

    " audio book...complex plot with many flat characters, but the protagonist, Aurelio Zen, is complex and balanced. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caleigh | 12/12/2012

    " Not much to say about this second book in the series, but I have hope - definitely more engrossing than his first Aurelio Zen book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brick | 11/23/2012

    " Moral complexity, shades of grey, within another very entertaining book. The depth of Dibdin's stories is astonishing, other mystery writers are not in this league. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathie | 11/8/2012

    " Even better than the first book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 11/5/2012

    " A readable mystery taking place in Italy. It started out with an engrossing premise. However, it became more and more clear that the protagonist had no personality. It might only deserve 2 stars but I'll be generous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ine | 10/22/2012

    " always good, with a gfw unexpected twists and real tension "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 9/26/2012

    " I liked the Masterpiece Mystery adaptations, so I thought I'd read a couple of the books. They're clever, although I need to read one where I don't already know the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy Hornik | 9/22/2012

    " Good stuff. The protagonist is a deeply frustrated man trying, trying to remain patient in a nearly impossible situation. Morality is a shifting mass of grays. "
