A Murder in Tuscany

A Sandro Cellini Mystery by Christobel Kent

A Murder in Tuscany by Christobel Kent

Review: A commentary on a recent change of life job starts this second mystery to feature Florence private investigator Sandro Cellini, with a wondering of how this had happened. Rich and poor class differences sets this story up as a who done it, or whose done it.

The detail is most impressive and winds one's intrigue toward an unveiling of the characters so that you are hooked even before you know it.

A castle in Florence that one might believe to be the perfect location for a murder or is it?

This book had me travelling to an elaborate setting and filled interactive characters that impact not only on each other but on the location.

I thought I had it figured all out only to be surprised in the end. A great read if you like detail of place and person.

A Murder in Tuscany was originally published in the UK as A Fine and Private Place.

Special thanks to Lynne Gordon for contributing her review of A Murder in Tuscany.
