A real-life crime that leaves fiction standing,
This review is from: Blood on the Altar (Paperback)
A real page-turner. Tobias Jones' research is amazingly thorough and though the background history/geography of Italy may, for some, get in the way of the story, it certainly helps those who don't know the country well to understand the power of the church, politicians and the judicial system in Italy, who often displayed not only breathtaking ineptitude but in some cases were downright Machiavellian. The 'investigations' left the grieving family for 16 years not knowing what had happened to their daughter.
The author does a superlative job of detailing the parallel crimes in both Potenza and Bournemouth. One of the best books I've read for years.
