Writer and literary critic Umberto Eco is most famous for his international best-seller In the Name of the Rose. His most recent novel, The Prague Cemetery, is a literary whodunit that was recently criticized by both the Vatican backed newspaper L’Osservatore Romano and the Chief Rabbi of Rome. Set in Europe in 1897, the story follows secret agent Captain Simone Simonini as he investigates an assassination and political intrigue.
