From the number-one best-selling author. Former SAS operative Ben Hope is running for his life. Enlisted by the beautiful Leigh Llewellyn - world-famous opera star and Ben's first love - to investigate her brother's mysterious death, Ben finds himself caught up in a centuries-old puzzle. The official line states that Oliver died whilst investigating Mozart's death, but the facts don't add up.

A good yarn but the last third was merely a formulaic tale. Disappointing.
Ben’s character from previous book was very different due to the narrator. Didn’t like this one do much.

The main character, Zen displays the complete range of human traits. Humorous, clever, pathetic, brave etc. The context of the story is terrible good. Divdin catches our concept of Italy completely. Michael Kitchens's laconic narration suits the whole endeavour exceptionally well. Enjoy!
