Deception everywhere and a satisfying conclusion
Both story and narration are in my top ten.
Zen has always skated on the edge of the corrupt Italian system, I was on tenterhooks following him as he descended deeper into it's murky waters. Deception on all sides with a satisfying conclusion.
Michael Kitchen has an incredibly versatile voice. He largely uses vocal light and shade to distinguish the characters and speaks with absolute clarity. This adds another dimension to Michael Dibdin's wonderful writing.
This book had me laughing and close to tears at times.
