Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joann Griffiths | 2/20/2014

    " I love the Italian setting and getting the feel for Sicilians. Zen has his peculiar foibles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacque Bona | 2/17/2014

    " Each series gets better...... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Will | 2/8/2014

    " Set in Sicily. "

    " Some interesting characters and local color. But as my father used to say about a certain Shakespeare play, "The king dies, the queen dies, Ham dies. I calls it a helluva play." It's funny how you can read a book nearly all the way through thinking you are going to recommend this one to friends, and on the last page you change your mind. That is especially true of mysteries. I have learned not to recommend anything before I have read the whole book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brigitte | 1/22/2014

    " An Aurelio Zen mystery set in Sicily. Entertaining to read, and suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Fielding | 1/22/2014

    " I love Michael Dibdin's Aurelio Zen, but they aren't your average crime novel. (And nothing like the television series!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Srini Ramakrishnan | 1/18/2014

    " Typical detective page turner that doesn't bore - but the book stands out for the many occasions when the author makes insightful comments on the human condition that are so unexpectedly out of place in a detective novel. If only more books were this way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 12/19/2013

    " Zen somewhat lost in Sicily, and in this one we learn more than we expect about his family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 11/4/2013

    " Interesting & riveting 7th Zen novel, taking on dark personal undertones along side some characteristic humour from the author, he has now moved the series onto a new level. This episode features Zen re-located to Sicily, where he finds himself involved in local Mafia politics.. recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Helene | 10/14/2013

    " Too violent for my taste but then my husband tells me that's because it's set in Sicily. The cliffhanger ending did send me scrambling for the next in the series, though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 10/9/2013

    " I loved it, even though I found the conspiracy incomprehensible. Looking forward to the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathanielk | 7/13/2013

    " Decent mystery with a few sour notes. Dibdin's take on the Sicilian mafia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurel | 6/18/2013

    " I liked being in southern Italy, and the normal confusion within a mystery wasn't terrible. Still, I can't figure out why I care about a guy who can find no answers and continues to play with the most dangerous people in the country. Ending is interesting, last page! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki Tremper | 11/14/2012

    " Heart-stopping. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irene B. | 10/18/2012

    " A bit slow moving and extremely maudlin for a Zen novel; however, the latter third of the book is throuroghly amusing and makes up for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 NL | 5/20/2012

    " Don't know yet if I want to read any other ones. Good character, writing, etc., but I don't know, we'll see. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorna | 1/7/2012

    " They are ok but not really very rivetting. I am getting bored by them. There are so many crime writers to choose from! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Howie Dodds | 12/1/2011

    " Another good yarn about Detective Zen. These books are dead easy to read and are really enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leaf | 10/11/2011

    " Random library pick, but happily turned out to be one of the best mysteries I have read in a long time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norm | 8/12/2011

    " a very good read, though pretty dark as this whole series is a cautionary tale about what happens to a society when everybody including (and especially the power structure) is looking out for number one... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 6/4/2011

    " Introduced to these books via Masterpiece Mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neil Morgan | 5/18/2011

    " Good book. probably not the best with which to start the Zen series but a good read nontheless. Want to read the next one and then start at the beginning! "
