An electrifying thriller for fans of Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly.
Forced into retirement because of ill-health, Commissario Domenico Martelli is hired to investigate a grotesque and disturbing murder.
The case brings him into conflict with his former colleagues and into confrontation with a mysterious and devious killer.
Set in the breathtaking Ligurian countryside, ACQUA MORTA will keep you guessing until the very last page.
Acqua Morta is the first book I have read by this author.
To start with I was slightly worried as in the first two chapters there were quite a few words I’d never come across and I thought I might struggle to read the story as unless I got a dictionary out I wouldn’t be able to appreciate the wording but after two chapters this seemed to stop. There on in this is an extremely well written book.
The story is mainly set in Italy which the author does a wonderful job of describing the surrounding areas, he really seems to take the time in being really descriptive throughout the book without it detracting at all from the story. For me the story wasn’t as fast paced as the usual crime thrillers that I read but I was still hooked to this story regardless.
The characters all worked really well and were totally believable. The storyline certainly kept my interest and I had no clue who was behind the murders.
I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.
Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.
