Today’s team review comes from Chris, she blogs at http://cphilippou123.wordpress.com
Chris chose to read and review Acqua Morta by Adam Bane
This dark crime thriller comes complete with sweeping vistas of Italy and descriptions that will transport you to an Italian dinner-table and leaving you drooling there.
Commissario Martelli, forced into retirement, continues to investigate his last case, a gruesome murder, against the wishes of his friends and ex colleagues. At the same time, in England, another policeman is investigating a case of forged passports and hoarded cash. Slowly, lyrically, the two strands twist together on their way to a single conclusion…
The writing is poetic, the descriptions evocative and the story wholesome. The book is a little long but, if you are a fan of both literary fiction and crime, this most certainly is the one for you.
