The Sacred Cut

Crime / Mystery eBooks of the Month

LoveReading View on The Sacred Cut

This is the third crime novel Hewson has set in Rome and for me it is much the best.  The same central characters feature in each.  This seems to have shades of The Da Vinci Code to it as a murdered woman’s back has the design of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man carved into it.  However it becomes something very different, very topical, very sad and very important.  An emotional story that needs to be read.

Similar this month: None but try Kathy Reichs.
Comparison: Donna Leon, Dan Brown, Barbara Nadel.
