The best of Kate Ross who never wrote a bad book What a tragedy that she died so young What can I say about this 4th and last novel of a superlative series that gives it its full due Mystery genre in cultural depth I can only think of a handful of moderns that pull that off Bel Canto comes to mind Or some of Louise Penny But this is 1825 and we are in Northern Italy for the entire on top of it City state intrigue classic manners of three cultures immense class differences in characterizations And that is just the face of the story Dipper s London street idioms and coded trash talk are priceless aloneBut Julian Oh Kate I wish you were still around to make this dandy come of full age and to give him his most elouent and passionate reveal These 4 Julian Kestrel books do not have to be read in order but if you can do that And this last one is a difficult read IMHO It was for me In length close to 500 pages and absolutely in its depth And to be savored as well Classical music opera voices of varying temperaments associations for celeb and nobility nuance passions of infidelity grotesue marriage relationship conflicting national loyalties and Lake Como Piedmont Milan Lombardy alive as much as the characters are alive Julian and Dr MacGregor are tested to their limits Excellent plot really two murders not one than 45 years apart in timeThis writer had a gift Exactly the same as Agatha Christie had in her best ones Revealing to the reader and the investigator by the supposedly insignificant glance or a silly omission or the gap of silence when there should have been clunks And the clever clever people
