Sarah Broadhurst's view...

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.

If you like David Hewson you might also like to read books by Stieg Larsson, Hakan Nesser and Anne Cleeves.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Covered by softly falling snow is the body of a young woman, her back horribly mutilated. But before Costa, Peroni and Rome's Questura can begin a formal investigation, the US Embassy has brought in FBI Agents, who want the case closed down as quickly and discreetly as possible. But Costa is determined to find out why?
