AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!! Is the only way I can describe this book! It had me completely gripped till the early hours before sleep forced me to stop reading. If you are a fan of Dan Brown this is certainly for you. The story is set mainly in Venice, Italy although it spans across to the USA and Croatia. Two officers meet on a crime that initially seems quite straight forward until it unravels and escalates into an international network involving many issues such as, prostitution, war crimes, and drug lords. Two women in particular who initially hit it off on the wrong foot find themselves combining their efforts in a dangerous attempt to uncover the truth behind many interlinked secrets. Kat Tapo is assigned a murder case working with Detective Colonel Aldo Piola of the Carabinieri, one of the largest Police Forces in Italy, and answer to the Ministry of Defence. Alongside him they start to realise that there may be more to the murder than anticipated and soon it becomes clear that it is a small part of an intricate web of crime than not only spans space and time, but also involves many different members of society many of whom are in highly regarded positions. This book was brilliant; to say it's a page turner is an understatement! The only problem now is waiting for the next book in the trilogy!' Sam Lewis for Lovereading.co.uk.
