    Enlightening and Entertaining Historical Fiction

    Author Malcolm Mahr's again proves himself master of the craft. His mysteries are always top-notch, and his storytelling gift in The Secret Diary of Marco Polo is a crowd -pleaser. The three-dimensional characters, clever twists and affecting subplots keep the pages flying with secrets popping out right up to the last page. As good as it gets, this story is equal parts romantic suspense, history and mystery and all about entertainment.

    Intriguing Thriller

    Malcolm Mahr has written a carefully researched and thrilling story that takes the reader to Venice, Italy, south Florida, and Shanghai, China. In "The Secret Diary of Marco Polo" two seemingly unconnected murders take place. The first is of a custodian from the Correr Museum in Venice, which was in possession of previously unknown documents from the famous explorer. The second murder happens in Fort Pierce, Florida, where a man's body is found floating in an inlet. The man is soon found out to be the last descendant of Marco Polo. The captain of the Fort Pierce police, Dominick Perini, who has his own personal problems to deal with, begins to unravel the mystery, which is tied to heroin smuggling. He is soon confronted by his estranged son, Tony, who tries to convince Dominick to abandon his pursuit of the case. Tony has been recruited by the US government to go to Venice where the smuggling operation is centered, to collect information, and his father's investigation would be a problem. In Shanghai, a beautiful young woman named Lu Yao is also ordered to go to Venice because funds from the drug transactions are being used to purchase weapons for Mongolian terrorists, a threat to China. Once Tony and Lu Yao meet in Venice, the tension builds and we are treated to an exciting finish. This is a thriller that grabs you right from the start and doesn't let go until the last page. John Cammalleri - Author of "Protecting the Cittern" and "The Ibex Trophy"
