1.0 out of 5 stars A borgia daughter dies
I was disappointed with this story because it dragged way too much to find the real culprit. There was no excitement to fill in the gaps.

1.0 out of 5 stars Woeful. Ridiculous, 17 Sep 2013
This review is from: A Borgia Daughter Dies: A real history mystery with Machiavelli and da Vinci (Kindle Edition)
This story was just a string of historical names barely held together by a ridiculous plot. The characters were unengaging and the final outcome predictable. What a disappointment.

Opening a window into the lives of some very famous people like Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia), Caesar Borgia, Lucrecia Borgia, some of the Sforzas and Machiavelli, the book gave me a different kind of joy of reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good holiday read, 7 July 2013

This review is from: A Borgia Daughter Dies: A real history mystery with Machiavelli and da Vinci (Kindle Edition)
This is an interesting way to introduce you to the Italian vendettas of the middle ages. It introduces magor players of the time in an interesting fictional story. Great to have a fictional female detective in action amongst the real key talents of the age.

I really enjoyed this book, and the fact that all the characters are historically recognised made it even better. Very believable characters. I'd highly recommend it

I found this book very difficult to get into and wasn't,t what I expected. Have read other books on the Borgia family which I have thoroughly enjoyed.

I expected a little more from this, and got a bit bored with the main character - seems unlikely she could realistically do the things she does in the book
