Framed for Murder, By Both Killer and "The Law".
The Italian Riviera forms a perfect backdrop for this pacey, absorbing, compelling detective thriller. Real time passes very fast as the climax builts. Some way before the conclusion we knew who the real killer is, if not exactly why, but that did little to spoil the final scenes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I found the characters to be well designed, with only John Hunter¿s personal connections and computer skills feeling a little stretched. In the end these minor flaws are easy to forgive. I don¿t wish to spoil the boil, so enough to say, this is rich Americans trying to prove innocence from crime in the special world that is Italy. The parallels with the real case of Amanda Knox are of more than passing. Actually the real case rather mirrors certain aspects of this earlier fiction. Both women blamed, both pilloried, both innocent?
