Keep track of the characters for this one, because each one is critical to the story; each one is different (and interesting). For instance, you don’t want to forget the bearded guy, because he shows up again near the end. Of course, the nice part about having the book on Kindle is that you can do a search for “bearded” if you don’t remember him.
Other reviewers have written a precis of the plot, so I will skip that part. Quick review: Plot? Excellent. Setting (especially Rome)? Superb. Characters? Very good. Dialogue? I got lost sometimes and had to figure out who was speaking; otherwise, top notch. Denouement? Quite satisfactory.
Krever loves to use similes. Sometimes overmuch. But they’re such good ones, all is forgiven.
–Full as a python in mid-cow [ever feel that way?]
–buzzing like a bee on steroids [yup, Fiat 500 sounds just like that, so do Vespas]
–like trying to push a ham through a sieve [nearly choked on my coffee on that one!]
–The Coliseum shown [sic] through the dark streets like the world’s grandest jack o’lantern [if you’ve ever seen the Coliseum at night you’ll appreciate the comparison]
and last, not really a simile, but I just had to share it
–marble floors, dark wood booths and cathedral-type windows, a bank being just a church for money anyway.
A really good writer, a thriller story, and a great sense of humor. What more could you ask?
