Italian police detective Aurelio Zen is posted to remote Calabria, at the toe of the Italian boot, on a routine assignment. But what he encounters there is anything but routine. Beneath the surface of a tight-knit community, violent forces are at work.

Zen is determined to find a way to penetrate the code of silence and uncover the truth behind a brutal murder. His mission is complicated by another secret that has drawn strangers from the other side of the world - a hunt for buried treasure, launched by a single-minded player with millions to spend pursuing his bizarre and deadly obsession.

    " Billed as the final Aurelio Zen in the long-running series, End Games has all the charm and delicious Italian craziness of the others. I'd bought this before the recent PBS airing of the British TV version of three of the early Zens. Compared to most TV detective yarns, they are fine, but it's REALLY hard to adapt a good police procedural. What makes them so addictive, so "page-turning" gets blunted and ginned up at the same time in the movie version. Typically. End Games also returns us to the original Zen trope, e.g., that he's a kind of Palladin of Italian police, which are invariably corrupt and/or incompetent. Zen rides in, overcomes the suspicion engendered by all outsiders, especially a Venetian by way of Rome. Along the way, we readers get insight into the particular flavor of evil and craziness in a given Italian reggione, in this case, Calabria. Very enjoyable. Not deep, but very good. "

    " It's not every mystery novel where a knowledge of Revelations and end-times theories comes in handy. Dibdin may have been a bit too clever for me in this one. By the end, I felt like I missed a nuance here and there, but I still enjoyed how everything came together. I'm going to miss Aurelio Zen. "

    " Michael Dibdin's 'Zen' books have got wittier and wittier over the years. I am so sad he died, I shall miss Aurelio, I've been reading about him for such a long time he seems like an old friend. "

    " Not quite what I was expecting, but I still enjoyed it. "
