Book Description

American Criminology Professor and former FBI agent Marin Ryan is arrested for the murder of one of her graduate students in Portofino, Italy. The police investigators are convinced by the unequivocal forensic evidence (blood, fingerprints, hair, and ballistics) that she committed the crime, so the Italian prosecutor demands a speedy trial with the probable penalty of life imprisonment.
The victim’s father wants her dead and has the finances to make it happen.
Her partner, billionaire computer genius, John Hunter, wants her free and safe. At every turn, John, along with Marin’s family, are faced with crippling obstacles in their attempt to investigate and stop the progress of the Italian justice system.
She is found guilty and sentenced to life behind the heavy, iron bars of an ancient Italian prison.
John refuses to give up and through his efforts pieces together circumstantial evidence of the real murderer. Can he save her or will he die trying.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good pacey whodunnit 9 Aug. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Very good suspense thriller with a plausible enough plot. A good holiday or weekend read, that has a murderer that one should be able to guess at, but probably doesn't until the story reaches to it's climatic end. We see money, influence, and jealousy drawing crime, but also helping solve it. I look forward to reading other novels by Karen and Thomas Donahue.

5.0 out of 5 stars murder most foul! 7 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brilliant! Absolutely superb novel. The best Ryan -Hunter mystery I have read ... so far! So many twists and turns, red herrings and counter truths to keep the reader on the edge of their chair, an excellent piece of writing. The characters were compelling in all their guises, playing with the reader then reeling one in. A thoroughly good read.

Whilst this book was not cerebrally challenging, for a relaxing read whilst on holiday it hit the spot. Would recommend as such.

Fell in love with Portofino years ago whilst on holiday there. Could not wait to read this book about the area and was not disappointed. Will highly recommend.
