The young woman was Rachel Tenison, a wealthy art dealer, who led what appeared to be a normal, fulfilled life. But as DI Mark Tartaglia and DS Sam Donovan scratch away at the surface, a darker, secret side emerges.
Then a tip-off sends their investigation spinning in an entirely different direction.

This book didn't blow my mind, but it was interesting and I'd read more by the same author. The characters were well drawn out, and the book had a good pace to it.
Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too.
Yes, I am almost finished with the third one and have bought the next one. Someone in a review compared her to Donna Leon. Yes, in some ways this is true. In others not, but it does not matter. I love a mystery with strong characterization and sense of place.
Perhaps a Donna Leon, but I do not like to think this way. It seems artificial and counterproductive.
I mostly like all of it with one tiny complaint. I wish his voice level would not go up so loudly at times and then I must turn the volume down to not wake my spouse and then it goes back to normal and I have to turn it up again. Consistency would be good. This is normal for most USA books, which is why I buy so very few. I haven't found this to be a problem with UK books before now. But, basically, he is really good
I never answer this question as it is too lame.
I hope the author continues to write and that I will have more than the four currently now available. I adore the characters and scenes. Modernity with acute social commentary. Such a worthy series that is also a great read.
Quite enjoyed the book up to a point - but the ending was not very consistent with the rest of the story line. It seemed to be a last minute construction and one not very well thought out.
