I like this type of book, lots of possible suspects for me to ponder on, and fathom out if they could be the killer and, if so, how they could have managed it. At times though I did think I as reading a cookery book or at least a food critic's review. So much food eaten at so many grand places. American detectives must be paid much more than their counterparts in Britain.

Anyhow it was a book which kept me reading when I should have been working - or sleeping - until I spied the Angel killer hiding amongst the characters, then my pace slowed a little and I had to work out how, and why, he had done it. I did think the victim's words were quite a giveaway too.

I liked the 'hero' Danny for most of the book but was very disappointed and dismayed with his behaviour after his devastating loss. I couldn't understand his family's attitude at all. My view was that it was too much too soon but maybe the Italians view of life after love is different.

Just two things stood out for me. Why didn't they do the normal police containment procedures, when they had their killer 'trapped', but... And, why didn't they look under Linda's finger nails when doing the autopsy? That may have give them a clue.

However, the ending was brilliant and despite all my suspicions, gave me a shock. Great stuff.

This book felt ... shallow and hollow, not real. The plot and characters were superficial and stereotype. Would not read again (as I usually do with good books).

After reading this it seems to me that Yankee coppers spend all day eating and spouting cliches. Plot is about as riveting as an afternoon of Pepa Pig.

Could have been a good book but totally unbelievable from the start. No policeman however good would work officially on his own wife's murder. No-one would loose a spouse & within days be in another relationship. The characters were poor, no substance, the "baddie" so obvious from the start & the police work was appallingly ineffective.
Not a book I would recommend, nor would I be tempted to read another by this author.

I found there was an awful lot time spent on eating and describing food which felt to me like padding out the story instead of the detective side of the story. It isn't one I would read again.

This book is really badly written, with under-developed characters and a wafer thin plot. I didn't care what happened to anyone in this book.

This is a clever serial killer whodunnit where the tale unfolds progressively through the chapters. It is basically well-written, but the hero's way of switching to another woman when he loses his wife, and the failure to apprehend the murderer by the end of the book disappoint the reader.

Who killed the Angels? Who killed Linda? Who killed the Flea? Who killed the others? A large number of deaths with two or three different unconnected threads. Linda is the wife of the detective who tells the tale. But did he kill her and make her look like an Angel? All sorts of theories pass through your mind. The answer is a surprise. But is the Angel killed following our hero? Not one for you if you like a tale with great depth. Reads we'll. The only unbelievable part is the our hero is allowed to investigate his wife' death.
