The first in a series of mysteries set in Venice that I picked up because Jo Walton says they’re wonderful and I trust her. For some reason she recommends starting with book 2 (she’s on book 22 (!) and the author is still alive), but I started with book 1 because what kind of monster do you take me for?
I enjoyed it, even though this was one of the more disturbing motives – definitely not a cozy mystery. Maybe Jo Walton’s recommendation about starting with book 2 was a typo.
