A collection of crime fiction short stories / novellas featuring Mme. Rosika Storey and her resourceful assistant Bella Brickley. Mme. Storey unravels complex cases with thorough investigation and an understanding of human nature - you won't find any miraculous Holmes-like solutions here. Bella's role is primarily as narrator, but shows she has plenty of brains and courage when sent out to do dangerous research on her own. Highly recommended, 5 stars.
Dry, boring characters. Uneventful, repetitious plot. Eventually I gave it up. The only reason I stayed with it as long as I did is because I have enjoyed other Hume novels very much.
In 16th century Italy a young nobleman comes of age and finds increasing conflict with his religiously fanatic mother.
Disappointing mystery novel. Starts out OK but by the end it becomes a bloated, convoluted, and repetitious mess. This book could have been a decent short story with some heavy pruning and editing.
