I really enjoyed this book and found it hard to stop listening. At times I really felt like I was in Rome and I couldn't wait to find out what happened.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. It has a rather slow pace compared to the 'gritty' type of crime novels that I usually listen to. I was initially impatient with the time taken to reveal the plot and with all the everyday aspects of life that interrupt the solving of the crimes but give it time. The story and pace with which the plot unfolds is actually more realistic. The novel is set in Florence in August and you get a real sense of the heat and atmosphere of Florence in August.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dead Season?
The interaction and the relationship between the main character, a private detective and his wife and with his friend and former police colleague. Not a 'one off' event but a gradual understanding of the main character and how likeable he is.
What about Saul Reichlin’s performance did you like?
A lovely melodic voice and with correct pronunciation of the Italian words that are in the novel.
Any additional comments?
A lovely easy listen that won't keep you awake at night but which has an interesting plot and characters.

An enjoyable series. Set in Florence, the main character is an more older, slower private detective than in most detective series. The stories are based around very ordinary people and the murders and mysteries are never over the top nor too gruesome. The narration is excellent - not one fake Italian accent!
