Reviews

Death, espresso, and political manoeuvering... An ex-cop plying his trade outside the boundaries of normal Italian police procedure. Brooding Italian noir. * Independent on Sunday *
Like Dibden's Zen, Cellini is a reluctant inquirer... fascism, the mafia and revolving-door post-war governments have left many secrets that score dark marks on the surface of daily life. Taut and thoughtful mystery that draws on the contrast between location... and the savage passions and politics that lie underneath. * MARK LAWSON, Guardian *
Dark, gloomy and often sinister... An intelligent and convincing thriller with fleshed-out characters you want to meet again. * Daily Mail *
Bridging the gap left by Michael Dibdin... Suspense, atmosphere, and the architectural beauty of Florence... Fantastic. * Irish Examiner *
Several rather touching human stories animate the conventional investigation in this excellent novel * Literary Review *
