Some British reviewers have said about this book that it is “intelligent, reflective crime fiction, written with diamond-sharp precision, a must-read series” and allegedly “an excellent read and one to be sought out by erudite mystery fans”. I don’t now where these reviewers are coming from since, to me, it’s nowhere as good a book as they allege; once again, Carofiglio has written mostly about Italian judicial procedures, though this time there’s a bit more meat on the storyline. But he still has annoying writing habits; at one point someone named Emilio appears only for a page or so then vanishes, reappearing 60-70 pages later with only his first name mentioned rather than “my friend Emilio” or something similar to alert the reader; I had to rifle through the first two-thirds of the book to figure out who he was; and there are still way too many digressions into the lawyer’s private life; good to have something there, but neither we nor the storyline need quite so much of it.
