The third in this series comes out soon.

Joyce's mystery and fiction book reviews with some non-fiction too!

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others.

  1. Wow, I’ve never heard of this author! I’m definitely going to read this
    I am a great fan of Camilleri, too!
    In case you don’t know them, I suggest some other authors of detective stories set in Italy: Marco Malvaldi, Antonio Manzini and Gianrico Carofiglio.


    1. You have just added to my TBR pile. I also enjoy Donna Leon’s Brunetti stories. They ad Marco Malvaldi’s books were made into TV shows on MHZ Choice Network. There are also Montalbano series there. I watched so many mysteries from around the world on this service during Covid.
      BTW, thanks for reading my blog.
