The Abomination (The Carnivia Trilogy)
by Jonathan Holt
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 13.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Real page turner, 17 Oct 2013
What a brilliant book - I couldn't put it down. It was a good thriller, with strong characters and gives a real flavour of Venice. Would recommend to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dandy is great, 28 Sep 2008
Dandy Gilver the heroine of the series is wonderful, quite well rounded and as human as the rest of us. Her household provide an entertaining backdrop to the mystery solving, and the society of the time seems to come alive. Would recommend

A good read, nice to have a heroine who's more normal than the usual ones, faults and all. Would recommend heartily!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but slightly annoying, 28 Sep 2008
The book is exactly as advertised - I had hoped for a similar read to the Agatha Raisin series, and whilst there are a few similarities, I've not got the same warm feeling yet. However I will go onto more in the series and give it more of a chance. The one slight irritation is the American slant and language, and whilst the heroine is American and you would expect her to speak as such, the rest of England don't talk of homicide and homicide squads(and many other language differences) so I found some of the ways the locals spoke very unbelievable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good read, 24 April 2008
I loved this book - a heroine who is human, and an entertaining mystery. Good for a winters evening in front of the fire. I've ordered book 2 in the series straight away.
If you like this may be worth looking at the Ellie Quicke Mysteries by Veronica Heeley too.
