A compulsive page-turner from start to finish.
If you haven't yet, read it now. You'll miss a night's sleep in getting to the end but it is so worthwhile.
The story of the dark secret of an island in an Italian lake, hidden by the locals and forced into the open with the arrival of Tom and his family starts a series of increasingly horrific events. Steve Emmett knows how to keep you hooked and paces the narrative beautifully. The authenticity of someone who has lived in Italy and understands her ways also shines through.
Amongst the roller coaster plot twists are numerous nuggets of cryingly beautiful similies and phrases that show that he is more than just another Dan Brown but a writer of the very highest quality.
Buy it, read it - or you will have lost something.
I doubt though, that it will be eulogised by the Italian Tourist Board.... Umbria: the gateway to hell.....
