Rome. When Chief Inspector Blume arrives at the scene of a brutal killing, he finds enquiries well underway, the case itself apparently clear-cut, and a prime suspect identified. But when worrying shortcuts sanctioned by one of his superiors are uncovered, it seems events are being manipulated from on high.

    " The story reminds me of the Dibdin Zen series. The dry sarcastic humour and the devil may care attitude of the detective. The setting of italy, the intricate corruption of police, the power hunger politicians, the nepotism of old italian families and all the while wondering how they actually solve any crimes with all the manipulations going on at the same time. I think the author captured the essence of how the italians view each other as foreign beings if they come from other areas of italy, as if their country were twenty small ones bordering upon one another. I enjoyed it and highly recommend it. "

    " I'm enjoying this book, it was a pleasure to be involved with a police procedural which is one of my favorite genres.However not one of the greats. "

    " While I am an avid reader, I had trouble pushing through this book. The story, while good, seemed to take forever to be told. No matter how many times I picked it up, it seemed as if I had gotten nowhere. The writing was good, though, and I did enjoy the story (once I had finally gotten to the ending). "

    " I am guessing this is the first in what will be an ongoing series featuring Alec Blume. This was a moderately interesting police procedural but the plot was almost unbelievable in terms of motive for a murder and the characters were not well developed. Trying to emulate Martin Cruz Smith's Arkady Renko series in Italy? Not a success. "

    " Great book and story, with good characterisation. I will def read the next ones in the series. 1* to the publisher, Bloomsbury (Kindle version) - I have never read a book with so many mistakes ie uncapitalised names etc. Quite offputting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle | 12/30/2013

    " It kept my interest going. I wanted to know who murdered who and why. But all in all, thats all it did was keep my interest going. Never really drew me in. Commissioner Bloom was an interesting charachter, an honest detective, but overall, it was just a story that was interestig and nothing more. "

    " New mystery series set in Rome; so far I really like it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sanna | 5/30/2013

    " I loved this book! It is a standard procedural but the writing is funny, understated, not calling attention to its cleverness. Hard to believe it is his first novel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/15/2013

    " Everything I look for in a procedural: strong writing, good story, interesting characters and locale. I look forward to the next in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry Strattner | 4/7/2013

    " Another interesting mystery protagonist; the expatriate detective on the Italian police force. A good story decorated with more than a few Italian procedural insights. Kind of a Roman Harry Bosch. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Greg Otto | 2/26/2013

    " Got about 30% through it. It was boring, boring, boring. No intrigue whatsoever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 2/11/2013

    " Standard murder mystery. Set in current-day Rome, although could have been almost anywhere. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Wright | 11/21/2012

    " pretty easy reading. not great but OK if you like the genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Zimmerbaum | 8/3/2012

    " A new mystery series set in Italy - Rome, obviously. Detective is native American who was living in Rome as a teenager when his parents were killed in a car accident. He remained there and became a police detective. Enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bernard | 6/13/2011

    " A great read! I just got taken in by the story because I was never distracted by an 'obvious writing style' - realistic, unpredictable (yet credible) and uncliched. I'm looking forward to reading the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank | 6/13/2011

    " very good more about the characters than the plot "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alice | 5/27/2011

    " This was on Kobo's free book list but it was just a sample chapter. The story might have been interesting, but the writing was a bit weak do I didn't bother to buy the book - also it was pricy over $13
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annie | 5/26/2011

    " Ehh -- I was expecting a book that had a lot more Rome in it nut instead, I got a police procedural with heavy mob accents. It was just okay. "
