    Clever and well-written novel

    I picked up this book at random, and was delighted to find that the dual plots and compelling narrative worked so well together to make a convincing and enjoyable work. The book keeps you guessing right to the end and really follows through on its theme of human good and evil. The love stories captured within the novel are touching without being sentimental and, all in all, it is quite a good read--both literary and poignant.

    Solid, well-plotted read.

    Henson did a pretty good job outlining this story. The plot itself is written in two time periods: one part coming from 1733 Venice, and the other, present day. Though his 18th century writing form isn't that impressive, the two stories are well managed and evenly laid out over the course of the book and come together nicely. It's a really strong story overall and I would have no hesitations recommending it.

    Great mystery

    In 1733 Lorenzo Scacchi comes to Venice to work for his uncle at Ca' Scacchi printing press. Excited by the prospect of the big city, he immediately falls under the spell of the beautiful capital. Things are going well until his uncle assigns Lorenzo to chaperone a gifted violinist who must hide her identity or face condemnation. Lorenzo obeys, but quickly finds the deception is turning from dangerous to fascinating to deadly................................... Two and half centuries later, Englishman Daniel Forster obtains summer employment cataloguing a library in the Ca' Scacchi. Excited by the prospect of Austria, he immediately falls under the spell of the beautiful capital. As he performs his duties, Daniel finds an anonymously written eighteenth-century concerto. That ¿treasure¿ leads to his involvement in a con that could turn from dangerous to fascinating to deadly.............................. David Hewson provides a fascinating look at Venice two-hundred fifty years apart in this exciting thriller spread centuries apart. The story line contains two plots that ultimately merge, but are also a two-edged sword as at times it is difficult to keep track of what is happening. Still the beauty of the city past and present comes to life inside the twin tales of intrigue and corruption bringing down the innocent.................................... Harriet Klausner
